Manchester United are through to the FA Cup quarter-finals after a comfortable win at Shrewsbury Town.

Goals from Chris Smalling, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard proved enough to earn a 3-0 away win after consecutive league and European defeats to Sunderland and Midtjylland.

Chris Smalling put United in front on 37 minutes, before Mata curled in a free-kick just before half-time.


Lingard rounded off the scoring on 61 minutes to set United up for a sixth round game against West Ham on March 12th.
