Manchester United ensured their progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a comprehensive 4-0 win against Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford. There was a huge surprise for Red Devils fans as Bastian Schweinsteiger started for the first time under Jose Mourinho, and he responded with a goal and an assist.
Maroane Fellaini, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Chris Smalling were the other goal-scorers as United ran riot in the second half, which was capped off by Schweinsteiger’s overhead kick to score the fourth and final goal of the game.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
First, here are some mind-boggling stats about Schweini’s return:
If you cast your mind back to when Jose Mourinho had frozen Schweini and Mkhitaryan out of the squad, this seems rather funny...
There’s hyperbole, and then there are Bastian fans...
What a day 29th January, 2017 has been!
