Bastian Schweinsteiger marked his first
Manchester United start for a year with a goal
and an assist in a convincing FA Cup win over
Marouane Fellaini got on the end of
Schweinsteiger’s cross to put the holders in
front just before half-time in this fourth-round
Chris Smalling made it 2-0 following a cross
from Anthony Martial, who set up Henrikh
Mkhitaryan to tap in the third.
Schweinsteiger completed the scoring with an
overhead kick from close range.
Wigan, 22nd in the Championship, had given a
good account of themselves before conceding
three goals in 24 second-half goals.
United, who made nine changes to the side that
faced Hull in the second leg of their EFL Cup
semi-final on Thursday, sent on substitute
keeper Joel Pereira, 20, and defender Axel
Tuanzebe, 19, for their debuts.
