It took United just six minutes to open the scoring as Robin van Persie headed in powerfully from Patrice Evra's cross.

Despite falling behind, Wigan looked lively during the opening half and continued to cause their opponents problems at the back.

However, the Premier League champions extended their advantage with an hour played thanks to Van Persie's deflected strike.
