Man United are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after edging Wolves in the third round of the tournament on Wednesday night, January 15.

United set up a replay date with Wolves at Old Trafford after settling for a goalless draw in the original tie played at Molineux Stadium 11 days ago.

Buoyed by home support, a second half masterclass from Juan Mata is all the Red Devils needed to seal a place in the next round of the competition.

The two sides settled for a barren draw in the first half of the meeting, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side being put under pressure early on.

However, they would have VAR after the technology disallowing Pedro Neto’s goal inside 10 minutes of action for a handball by Raul Jimenez during the build-up.

The visitors once again came close to breaking the deadlock in the 30th minute, but Doherty’s effort hit the post.

The second half of the match saw United continue their dominance, but remained nonclinical in the final third.

But in the 67th minute, Mata netted the opener after Anthony Martial nudging ahead to the Spaniard who beat Ruudy who was in goal for Wolves with a lovely finish.

The home side went on to fend off several attacks by Nuno Espirito’s to salvage a slim 1-0 win to qualify for the fourth round of the tournament.

United will now take on the winner between Tranmere Rovers and Watford, whose replay was postponed due to rain.
