The Whites secured passage into the third round of the tournament with a 3-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra at Elland Road on Tuesday night.

A goal from stand-in captain Kalvin Phillips followed by a double from wide man Jack Harrison was enough to see off the League One visitors in front of a sold out crowd in LS11.

United have now been handed an away tie with Championship outfit Fulham at Craven Cottage in the capital as a result.
