Substitute Mason Greenwood was on target and also made an assist as United beat the Championship side.

A Juan Mata penalty had given United the lead at the end of the first half, before Rashford, who came in for Ighalo, doubled the lead in the 88th minute.

It was Greenwood who sealed the victory with a late goal, to set up a meeting with either fellow Premier League side Brighton or Preston of the Championship in the next round.

United were beaten 3-1 by Crystal Palace in their Premier League opener last weekend.
