Alexis Sanchez made a goalscoring return to Arsenal to set Manchester United on their way to a fourth-round FA Cup win which makes it eight straight wins for interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Sanchez has struggled to produce his best form since swapping Emirates Stadium for Old Trafford a year ago. However, he was at his sharpest to take Romelu Lukaku’s superb reverse pass in his stride and round Petr Cech to give United a 31st-minute lead.

Lukaku was the creator again two minutes later as Jesse Lingard’s precise finish doubled United’s advantage; and even though Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back before the interval, Solskjaer’s side was always in control.

United keeper Sergio Romero’s superb save from Aaron Ramsey at the start of the second half was crucial in keeping Arsenal at bay and United were rarely troubled afterwards.

Arsenal’s cause was not helped by injuries to key defenders Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Laurent Koscielny; substitute Anthony Martial wrapping up United’s latest success when he pounced after Petr Cech could only palm out Paul Pogba’s shot with eight minutes of normal time left.

Chelsea 3 vs 0 Sheffield

Wednesday, Callum Hudson-Odoi scored in what could be his last game for Chelsea as they beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-0 in the FA Cup fourth round.

Wednesday had a penalty award overturned by VAR in the first half at Stamford Bridge after Ethan Ampadu was adjudged to have won the ball ahead of Joey Pelupessy (23), before Chelsea scored from a penalty of their own moments later through Willian (26).

Chelsea doubled their lead through Hudson-Odoi (64), who has handed in a transfer request amid interest from Bayern Munich. The 18-year-old producing a fine turn and finish inside the box for only his second Chelsea goal.

Willian added a third late on (83) with a fine curling finish to give Chelsea safe passage into the fifth round, for which the draw will be held on Monday evening after 7pm.

Gonzalo Higuain made his Chelsea debut following a loan move from Juventus, while Hudson-Odoi and Ampadu also earned starts.

Controversy followed a slow start as Andre Marriner awarded the visitors a penalty for Ampadu’s apparent foul on Pelupessy, but the VAR Graham Scott replayed the incident, showing Ampadu got the ball and the Wednesday man had kicked his heel.

As per VAR overturn rules, the game restarted with a drop ball rather than a corner for Wednesday, and Chelsea went up the other end to earn a penalty of their own as former Blues midfielder Sam Hutchinson kicked Cesar Azpilicueta.

It went to VAR again, but the foul was clear, and though Willian had offered the ball to Higuain to take the spot-kick, the debutant unselfishly allowed the Brazilian to slot home for 1-0.

Adam Reach hit the outside of the post with a miscued cross in the second half, but that was as close as Wednesday got to getting on the scoresheet, with Hudson-Odoi then doubling Chelsea’s lead.

Picking the ball up from Andreas Christensen inside the box, Hudson-Odoi expertly turned Morgan Fox, and though Keiren Westwood got a hand to his left-footed effort he could not keep it out.

Higuain was given an ovation for a decent, if unspectacular, debut on 80 minutes, and his replacement Olivier Giroud had a part to play in the third. Willian played a one-two with the Frenchman inside the box, before curling a fine effort past Westwood into the far corner.

Man city 5 vs Burnley 0
Manchester City made it 29 goals without conceding in their 5-0 FA Cup victory over Burnley to secure their berth in the last-16 of the competition.

Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring for his eight goal in five games before Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne got their names on the scoresheet at the Etihad.

Kevin Long then put through his own goal before conceding a penalty, with substitute Sergio Aguero added the Blues’ fifth of the afternoon five minutes from time.

City beat Burnley by the same scoreline in the Premier League earlier this season and were ruthlessly efficient against Sean Dyche’s side to maintain their perfect start to the New Year.

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino remains the last player to register against the Blues, on January 3, as Pep Guardiola’s side continue their challenge for four trophies this season.
