The Red Devils bounced back from their loss to Southampton in the Premier League last weekend as they secured victory to become the first team to book their place in the fifth round.
Wayne Rooney gave United the lead when curled home in the 16th minute – despite the striker appearing to be offside in the build-up – before George Thorne equalised to make it 1-1 at half-time.
Daley Blind put the visitors in front again when he converted Jesse Lingard’s cross in the 65th minute, before Juan Mata sealed victory seven minutes from time to relieve some of the pressure on manager Louis van Gaal.
And Schweinsteiger, who missed the game through injury, was clearly a happy man after the final whistle.
The German tweeted:
Next round of the FA Cup! Very well done, lads #mufc
