Diogo Dalot opened the scoring with his second of the season before Bruno Fernandes netted from the spot in the second half.

United will now face either Newport County or National League side Eastleigh in the fourth-round.

However, Scholes was not happy with one tactic deployed by manager Erik ten Hag.

The club legend took to social media to slam the team’s corner routines.

He wrote: “Short corners are sh**.”

And the former England midfielder had plenty of fans agreeing with him.

One fan posted: “I think we may all agree Bruno is a great player but please someone else should be on those corner kicks.”

A second wrote: “Amateur corner kicks. Ten Hag should teach Fernandes how to kick the ball too? Even Scholes was angry about 12 corners missed.”

A third commented: “What Manchester United short corners do to a mf.”


A fourth said: “I have never seen United pull off a short corner, STOP.”

Another added: “Can Manchester United please stop doing this hocus pocus short corners. Just knock it into the box.”

Fellow club legend Gary Neville also chimed in with his opinion in which he admitted to having a “sinking feeling” at seeing the ball go short.

He said: “Whilst I wouldn’t go as far as Scholesy on short corners (particularly if the opposing team are giants).

“It’s always a sinking feeling when the CB’s have gone up and you have five or six in the box and you see it played short and not whipped in.”

Ten Hag was far more positive when assessing the match from his point of view.

He told ITV: “The FA Cup is all about winning, it is knockout. You want to finish the job. That is what I said in the dressing room ‘job done’.

When asked if United should have scored more goals, the Dutchman added: “Oh, definitely.

“In the first half I think we created five or six very good chances.

“I think it was very good football. We should have taken more, but if you don’t score you have to stay focused and I think we did that tonight.”
