Manchester United progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup after a comfortable 4 – 0 win over Watford on Sunday afternoon with goals coming from Fellaini , Smalling , Mikhtaryan and Schweinsteiger . Ahead of the match , Jose made 9 changes to the side that faced Hull on Thursday with Mikhtaryan , Mata, Martial and Rooney leading the attack. There was also a special moment for Alex Tuanzebe who made his first senior appearance for the club replacing Fosu – Mensah with 23 minutes left to play and also Pereira coming in for Romero on 80 minutes.
Overall, it was a good performance by the team though we struggled to get into rhythm for the first 20 minutes of the game, the first half had few goalscoring chances indeed though we got a timely lead through Fellaini ‘s header on 44 minutes.
