Juan Mata's second-half strike saw Manchester United advance to the FA Cup fourth round, but their 1-0 victory over Wolves was soured by an injury scare to Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford.

Mata skilfully lifted over Wolves goalkeeper John Ruddy midway through the second half but, four days before a visit to Premier League leaders Liverpool, Rashford then hobbled off barely 15 minutes after coming off the bench.



Doherty went close to breaking the deadlock here but his header across goal came back off the post although United, who were seeing plenty of the ball, went close as Mata's curling effort led to a smart save from Ruddy.



The Spaniard went clean through on goal and held his nerve to exquisitely chip over the advancing Ruddy.

However, barely 15 minutes after being introduced, a clearly discomforted Rashford, who had moments earlier taken a knock to the back by Doherty, made way for Jesse Lingard before heading straight down the tunnel.

But United, who failed to muster a shot on target in the 0-0 draw at Molineux 10 days ago for the first time since January 2015, largely bossed the second half and probably deserved to shade the contest.

The England forward clutched his back as he made his way towards the tunnel in the 80th minute, putting a dampener on an evening where United had to occasionally ride their luck to set up a clash with either Watford or Tranmere.
