Manchester United have one foot in the next round of the FA Cup after a quickfire double from Casemiro eased any fears that the Reds were in for a long evening.
Marcus Rashford had a first-half goal disallowed by VAR but it didn’t take long after the interval for United to claim an advantage over Paul Ince’s side.
Antony and Casemiro combined to score the opening goal and it was the latter who would double United’s lead, as seen below.
"It's a cup corker from Casemiro!" 🤩
