Man­chester Uni­ted 1-0 Shef­field Uni­ted 0, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish FA Cup Third Ro­und, Jan­uary 9, 2016. Al­though Man­chester Uni­ted had more prob­lems than ex­pec­ted ag­ainst Leau­ge One club Shef­field Uni­ted, Louis van Gaal´s te­am ul­ti­mately won the Emir­ates FA Cup Third Ro­und ga­me by 1-0 thro­ugh a late pen­alty goal by Way­ne Roo­ney in the 92nd minute. 

Man­chester Uni­ted, who played in a 4-2-3-1 form­a­tion, dom­in­ated from the out­set, but the ho­me si­de had a very few shots on tar­get dur­ing the open­ing forty-five min­utes and the fir­st ha­lf ended goal­less. Man­chester Uni­ted kept up the pres­sure fol­low­ing the re­start and sub­sti­tute Mem­ph­is De­pay came clo­se to scor­ing five min­utes pa­st the hour ma­rk, on­ly to watch his twenty-five yard shot go wide of the left up­right. But just as the mat­ch look­ed destined to be head­ing for a draw, Mem­ph­is was il­leg­ally bro­ught down by Shef­field Uni­ted mid­fielder Dean Ham­mond in­side the eight­een-yard box dur­ing stop­page time and ref­er­ee Jon­athan Moss awar­ded Man­chester Uni­ted a pen­alty which Way­ne Roo­ney con­ver­ted to give the hosts a 1-0 win.
