Wolves had an early Pedro Neto strike ruled out by the video assistant referee for a handball in the build-up.
But it was a deserved win for the hosts, who had the better chances in a tight game at Old Trafford.
🗣 “We’re through and we’re delighted with that.”

Manchester United will next travel to either Watford or Tranmere – whose third-round replay at Prenton Park on Tuesday was postponed because of heavy rain.
In another match played today, Cardiff City beat Carlisle 4-3 in a thriller to force its way into the fourth round to face Reading.
