Manchester United progressed to the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup

A much-changed Manchester United progressed to the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup with a comfortable 4-0 victory over Wigan Athletic on Sunday afternoon.

The result ensured it would be an unhappy return to Old Trafford for former Reserves coach Warren Joyce, as Marouane Fellaini headed United in front, before second-half goals from Chris Smalling, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Bastian Schweinsteiger put the Latics to the sword, and the Reds into the hat for Monday’s draw.

Ahead of the match, Jose Mourinho made nine changes from the side that faced Hull in Thursday evening’s EFL Cup semi-final second leg, with attacking quartet Mkhitaryan, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, and Wayne Rooney among those returning to the starting line-up.
