A lovely Juan Mata goal was the difference as Man Utd set up a fourth round tie with either Watford or Tranmere, but Utd will be made to sweat after Marcus Rashford suffered an injury scare.

Mata skilfully lifted over Norwich 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.

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

Neither was directly involved in the opener three minutes later as a routine ball forward to the halfway line caused havoc in Wolves’ back-line with Anthony Martial freeing Mata down the centre.

The visiting fans chanted ‘it’s not football any more’ in frustration at the ruling, the second time across this tie Wolves have been left cursing the technology, with an identical infraction at Molineux denying Doherty a goal.

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.

Jimenez’s tame shot after sharply turning past Victor Lindelof gave Sergio Romero a simple save and the Wolves forward was in the thick of the action again as the visitors had a goal chalked off by VAR after 10 minutes.
