Man United Ease Past Shrewsbury,  Set Up West Ham Clash

Manchester United have booked a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after defeating League One side Shrewsbury Town 3-0 Monday night.

Louis van Gaal’s team will now face Victor Moses and Emmanuel Eenike’s West Ham in the quarter-finals in March.

Chris Smalling, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard were the scorers for United.

Memphis Depay had Manchester United’s first chance in the 10th minute but his effort was well saved by Jayson Leutwiler.

United continued to dominate their hosts but couldn’t find a way past their crowded defence.

Depay came close in the 26th minute from a free-kick which unfortunately hit Anthony Martial and went over the bar.

Two minutes later Abu Ogogo heads off the line after Leutwiler partially saved Martial’s shot.

Then in the 37th minute, United’s pressure eventually paid through Chris Smalling off a Morgan Schnerderlin assist.

And in two minutes added time in the first half, Juan Mata added a second from a well taken free-kick which went over the wall, with Leutwiler rooted to the spot.

Prior to the commencement of the second half, United handed Joe Riley his debut, as he replaced Cameron Borth-wick Jackson.

On 54 minutes, Martial beat his marker but couldn’t connect his header on goal, missing from five yards.

Lingard got on the score sheet in the 61st minute after meeting a fine Ander Herrera’s cross.

In the 74th minute, substitute Will Keane, saw his left-foot strike come off the post after being fed by Depay.

Three minutes later Keane went off injured, leaving United to play the rest of the game with 10 men after using all three substitution.

In the 87th minute, Ogogo finds himself unmarked inside United’s six-yard box but headed wide.

United will now host West Ham in the last eight of the FA Cup.
