Jones also missed the game after he said he was unfit during the week.
Four years, to be precise.
Wilder voiced his dissatisfaction with VAR after the match - despite that particular incident benefiting Town - and was rather more effusive in his praise of his side's performance.
Matic said the idea of VAR is a good one, but that the implementation must be improved to result in quicker decisions.
After the match, the United boss admitted that the 24-year-old was supposed to start the FA Cup tie.
Lukaku was signed to be a guarantee of goals.
"For me that's a goal", he told Talksport.
Hawkeye have said that a "technical error" had led to the dodgy graphic being provided for the TV broadcasters. That is what finishers can do. Yet this week United face Sevilla and Chelsea. City can deliver the first trophy of Guardiola's reign in charge next Sunday against Arsenal in the League Cup final. Now United require a big-game player.
"And you can see the combinations between them".
That being done, Alexis Sanchez has now been directly involved in 16 goals in 16 appearances in the FA Cup (eight goals and eight assists). There is a sense that United players are judged on such stages.
The Belgium striker showed skill, strength and balance to put Jose Mourinho's men ahead inside three minutes at the John Smith's Stadium, then raced through to put the tie out of sight in the 55th minute.
Lukaku's involvement is at least expanding.
Since his arrival, United haven't exactly been the hallmark of consistency, losing twice in the five games he has started - Tottenham and Newcastle inflicting the wounds. "If they find a way in the VAR that the VAR is always right and always brings the truth, I'm happy with that". That resourcefulness and self-sufficiency could be necessary.
Despite the Mata decision going in his side's favour, Huddersfield boss David Wagner also expressed his displeasure at what he sees as robbing fans and players of the emotion of scoring a goal. "I celebrated and it didn't count".
The Saints beat West Brom 2-1 on Saturday to secure a quarter final berth for the first time since 2005. Pogba, the £89million midfielder, reported ill on Saturday morning.
"You get a good chance and he will score". Lukaku's presence is a given.
"In the last couple of matches he did not play well".
