United cruise against the Shrews as QF awaits

Louis van Gaal gained some much-needed restbite on Monday evening; as the Red Devils claimed a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Shrewsbury Town in the first ever meeting between the two clubs.

Manchester United steamrollered their way into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a thoroughly comprehensive victory over the Shropshire outfit.

Following the desperately poor Europa League outing in Denmark, van Gaal’s men were under massive pressure to make short work of the League Two outfit – and so it proved.

Despite some dogged first-half defending, Shrewsbury were utterly outclassed. Chris Smalling was the unlikely opening score on 37 minutes; with Juan Mata Garcia doubling the advantage before the interval.

Jesse Lingard wrapped up progression as he turned home Ander Herrera's shot; to the delight of the travelling Red Army.

United, inexplicably, wore white jerseys. A colour clash with Shrewsbury’s traditional blue and yellow striped shirts was, err, probably not a concern!

Roll on the quarter-finals. United are one win from Wembley.

Full Time – Shrewsbury Town 0-3 Manchester United
Attendance - 9,370
