Two second half goals from Christiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney booked United's place in Mondays 4th Round draw.

"We knew it would be a tricky game as Villa have been going so well recently, the United boss said after the game at Villa Park.

"It was very tight but we managed to squeeze through. I couldn't see a goal coming and I'd have settled for a replay.

"The most important thing all the way through the 90 minutes was to stay in the competition."
