Manchester United bounced back from their disappointing defeat to Burnley in midweek and thrashed League One side Tranmere Rovers 6-0 away, in Sunday’s fourth round Emirates FA Cup clash at Prenton Park.
United had six different scorers against Tranmere. It was the first time they achieved the feat since October 1892, when they won 10-1 against Wolves in the top-flight.
Harry Maguire opened scoring for United in the 10th minute before Diogo Dalot made it 2-0 in the 13th minute.

And in the 56th minute, Mason Greenwood converted from the penalty spot to end the game 6-0 for Manchester United.
