Manchester United lost Marcus Rashford to injury as they beat Wolves 1-0 in an FA Cup third-round replay at Old Trafford.
Juan Mata’s beautiful finish ensured 12-time FA Cup winners Manchester United progressed to the fourth round courtesy of a 1-0 win over Wolves at Old Trafford.
Marcus Rashford was forced off with an injury just 15 minutes after coming on as a substitute, a setback that soured this narrow victory ahead of their trip to face Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.
Mata, who scored the last time United lifted the trophy with a 2-1 final win over Crystal Palace in May 2016, latched onto Anthony Martial’s pass to break the deadlock midway through the second half (67).
Manchester United face a trip to either Watford or Tranmere in the fourth round on Sunday January 26.
