It was the biggest game in Shrewsbury Town's history this evening as they hosted Manchester United but they suffered a 3-0 defeat against the Premier League giants.

They took the lead after half an hour when Chris Smalling volleyed in and the visitors scored again in first half added time with a free kick from Juan Mata.

They made sure of the result in the second half with another goal from Jesse Lingaard.

Abu Agogo had the Shrews' best chance with a free header late on but they could not find a response to Louis Van Gaal's men.

Shrewsbury now turn their attentions to avoiding relegation from League one.
