Manchester United progressed to the next round of the FA Cup after knocking out West Ham United in extra-time in their fifth round clash at Old Trafford.
Neither side was able to break the deadlock in normal time but Scott McTominay's strike in the seventh minute of extra-time sent United through.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to use the game to give opportunities to a number of fringe players and their performances against the Hammers may well influence his thinking when it comes to future matches.
First-team regulars like David de Gea, Luke Shaw, Bruno Fernandes and Edinson Cavani were all absent from the starting line-up and Daily Star Sport takes a look at three players who gave Solskjaer some real food for thought.
The left-back was signed for a fee of around £15m in the summer but the excellent form of Shaw has seen his opportunities limited.
However, with Shaw given a rest against West Ham, Telles impressed in the England international's absence both offensively and defensively.
His dead ball delivery was a threat and he created three chances in the opening 30 minutes, more than any other player on the pitch.
Telles also dealt well with Jarrod Bowen in the first-half and his performance showed that Solskjaer can have full confidence in him when he needs to call on the Brazil international.
Donny van de Beek
The Dutch international has not had the best start to life at Old Trafford, with his game time limited and the likes of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba ahead of him in the pecking order.
When he has got his chance, Van de Beek has not made much of an impact and against West Ham that proved to be the case once more.
The 24-year-old looked off the pace and struggled to have an effect on the game.
Van de Beek is undoubtedly in a difficult situation at the moment, given his lack of opportunities and need to adapt to English football, but he is unlikely to get more game time if his displays do not improve.

David de Gea has come under fire in recent seasons after making a number of errors, most recently receiving criticism for his display in United's 3-3 draw with Everton on Saturday.
Henderson, who received plaudits for his performances on loan at Sheffield United last season, has been limited to just four appearances in the Premier League and Champions League this year.
He has instead had to settle for being United's cup goalkeeper, playing every game in the EFL and FA Cup.
Against the Hammers, Henderson did not have much to do but he kept his fourth clean sheet of the season and if De Gea continues to come under pressure, Solskjaer could turn to the 23-year-old on a more regular basis.
