Tranmere hosted a strong Manchester United side for their 4th round clash of the FA Cup on Sunday. The Ole Gunnar Solskjaer managed side were not in the mood to show any mercy to the second division team. They slotted in six goals to enter the next round of FA Cup. Skipper Harry Maguire scored his first goal for Manchester United. Interestingly, Phil Jones also made it to the scoresheet.
The talking point of the match was that Jesse Lingard finally broke his goal drought after more than one year. He scored his first goal of the season. Jesse Lingard has been on the receiving end for his poor performances in recent months. He bagged the man of the match award for his performance against Tranmere.

Harry Maguire (10'), Diogo Dalat (13'), Jesse Lingard (16'), Phil Jones (41') and Anthony Martial (45') made it to the scoresheet in the first half. Manchester United's Mason Greenwood scored the only goal in the second half from a penalty. The 18-year-old has now scored in 7 different competitions this year.
