  • Luke Shaw enjoys some freedom to bomb up the wing

Lukaku managed just six goals in 22 games under Mourinho this season but is now benefitting from a different style of football under Solskjaer.

Romelu Lukaku has had to start life under Solskjaer on the bench, but did score in each of his past two substitute appearances.

Sanchez and Lukaku led United's attack as Solskjaer made nine changes from the 2-0 win at Newcastle and his side lacked a degree of sharpness at times.

Attention now turns to Sunday's game at Wembley and United have flown to Dubai for some warm weather training ahead of that clash with Spurs.

Victory continues Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's remarkable start as United manager, with the Red Devils yet to taste defeat under their new boss.

After some good play, United had the ball in the net through Fred but it was ruled out for offside.

While the FA Cup is said to be losing its magic, the third round still represents an opportunity for some younger players to make their professional debut.

Cup holders Chelsea are in action later at home to Nottingham Forest while Arsenal visit Blackpool. "He's had his time off over Christmas and now he's getting his fitness back".

The Newcastle player whistled up for a free-kick when challenging the Frenchman during Wednesday night's match. He couldn't mark the occasion with a goal - he had a penalty saved in the 30th minute after a stuttered run-up. "When I came in they were open and honest".

It is the 25-year-old's best run in a United shirt since March after struggling for goals in the final months of Jose Mourinho's reign.

Premier League strugglers Burnley needed a late penalty from Chris Wood to see off third-tier Barnsley 1-0.

The result won't have helped the mood of Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock, who was unhappy at missing out on signing Nathaniel Clyne after the right back sealed a move to Bournemouth from Liverpool on Friday. There is no Premier League team that could say they have as good goalkeeper being their number two. "For me, it's a disgrace".

After a terrible start to the season that ended any Premier League title hopes early on, and an early Carabao Cup exit at the hands of Frank Lampard's Derby County, the FA Cup presents the only real shot at silverware for United this season.
