FULLTIME: BLACKBURN 1 - 2 MANCHESTER UNITED

A wonderful Cup game this, with neither side willing to give an inch - and containing three goals of the highest quality. United are still alive on four fronts this season, while Owen Coyle will be hoping that this performance sparks something within his team and they can dig themselves out of the hole they find themselves in in the Championship. 

Thanks for reading... Anirudh Menon signing out

Toodle-ooo!!
...
93' United get the ball back and are passing it around with consummate authority. 
...
92' Greer tries to play in Mahoney behind the United backline, but it's just off. 
...
91' Conway's set piece is headed away by Smalling, but Blackburn have the ball back and tighten the noose around the visitors penalty area.
...
90' Blackburn are laying siege to United's goal and Mulgrew almost dances his way through the defence! Smalling is forced to concede a corner. Four minutes added on
...
88' Mahoney is really proving to be a handful, and forces Darmian to pull him back. United use the break the set piece affords by bringing on Mata for Rashford. Calm heads and all that, I guess. 
...
87' United really cannot afford to get complacent here. Blackburn are a very good side and Conor Mahoney is a major, major, threat
...
86' THE BALL IS IN THE BACK OF THE NET! BUT OFFSIDE!!! OH WOW!! Mahoney wreaks havoc on the right wing before cutting in and Robben-ing it at goal. Romero can all lap it away and Emnes whacks it at goal. Romero saves again, but the ball bounces to Anthony Stokes who knocks it in, but is a mile offside. 
...
85' Greer's forward pass is cut of by the always excellently positioned Carrick,  but Tomlinson closes the ball down and that's the danger averted
...
84' His delivery is pretty good too, and causes all sorts of confusion in the box before running out for a goal kick off Lenihan
...
83' Mahoney rips Pogba apart with a lovely little touch and a searing turn of pace, and the Frenchman is forced to hack him down! Quite the impression Mahoney has made. 
...
81' Blackburn play their final roll of the dice and take of Guthrie as Tomlinson jogs on in his stead
...
80' United will be well advised to not take their foot of the gas. It takes a superb Carrick interception to prevent Marvin Emnes from running through on goal!
...
79' Darmian gets his revenge by flying past Mahoney and winning the foul as the young Irish lad tries to win the ball
...
78' Pogba has a pop - and why not - but it's well blocked by Lenihan. United stroke it around with far less urgency now.
...
77' Blackburn's scorer Danny Graham is off as Stokes takes his place. 
...
Pogba picks out Zlatan from inside his own half and the Swede controls it, turns and places it into the bottom corner. Superb, superb, goal. 24 goals for the King. 

Hot damn!
...
76' GOOOOOOOOOOOALL! GUESS WHO........ ZLATAN!
...
75' Herrera really fancies it today. The Spaniard has another crack, but it's easily blocked
...
74' Mahoney skins Darmian with rather too much ease for Mourinho's comfort before winning a corner. The young lad takes the corner and Graham knocks it into the net!! BUT THE REF HAS BLOWN THE WHISTLE! Long back actually - Graham did foul Rojo in the melee. 
...
72' Mkhitaryan runs on to a Herrera pass after good work from him, Carrick and Pogba in midfield but the cross is poor. Young gets into the book for a frustrated foul on Conway. Meanwhile Coyle takes off the excellent Conway and replaces him with Mahoney. 
...
71' Herrera has a dangerous hit that can only be cleared for a corner. Nothing comes of it. 
...
70' Pogba and Zlatan combine yet again. The Frenchman's long pass is controlled on his chest by Zlatan, but he can't quite get his shot away - unusually for him - and the chance goes begging. 
...
69' Feeney sweeps in another excellent cross - he's been excellent on the wings - but Smalling heads clear.
...
68' Carrick, though is a master. He picks out Rashford with another 50 yarder, but the Englishman's attempt to pick out Herrera is not a great one. Mourinho's frown tells the whole story.
...
66' Pogba, Mkhitaryan and Zlatan exchange quick passes but it's all too crowded in the middle. 
...
65' Feeney whips in a wicked cross after receiving a superb switch pass from Guthrie - Emnes was this far from heading it in! Blackburn are by no means out of this game!
...
64' Carrick picks out Rashford with a quite incredible ball, but the striker mis-controls it! What a chance!! United are laying siege now - as you would expect but Feeney's quick feet and Guthrie's smart work are keeping Blackburn's threat very much alive.
...
63' Pogba releases Rashford and the young man puts his head down and races forward before whacking an effort off Greer! The corner comes to nothing, but United retain possession 
...
62' OH MY! Zlatan was an inch away from scoring with his first touch! Herrera had a pop at goal after being teed up by Pogba and Zlatan's outstretched leg almost met it! As it is, goal kick for Blackburn.
...
61' Martial teases and torments Greer, before lifting it to the far post where Williams hacks it away for a corner. Mourinho takes the opportunity to bring on the heavy guns - Pogba and Zlatan on for Lingard and Martial
...
60' Blackburn move forward purposefully and win a corner, but Conway's delivery is straight to Romero. United move forward - but Lingard slips at the crucial moment as he looks to play a 1-2 with Rashford and that's the end of that
...
58' Emnes is causing havoc in that backline, but this time he gets penalised for handball just before he can wreak havoc. United are yet to come up with a convincing answer to the question of how to keep the Dutchman quiet. 
...
57' United are right back, though and Mkhitaryan slips in Young with a lovely ball. The Englishman's ball rolls into the keeper as no United player makes a run into the box. Rashford and Martial are both outside the box looking for the cut back... That's certainly not what goal poachers do Marcus and Anthony
...
56' The set piece is caught well by Romero - and he tries to release Mkhitaryan, but the Armenian is bullied off the ball by Conway. 
...
55' Young does well to defend yet another lovely Feeney delivery from the right wing. A corner for the home side and Ewood Park perks up again.
...
54' Herrera whips in a set piece.. he slips just as he goes to hit it, and that means the ball flies off into Row Z. 
...
53' Rashford is like a shot of espresso. He injects pace in another patient United build up but he's crowded out by Blackburn and harmlessly places the ball wide. 
...
52' Mkhitaryan and Rashford rapidly exchange passes but Feeney is back to cover the Armenian and clear the danger. Blackburn try to counter but Emnes is brought down by Lingard. Yellow for the United man.
...
50' From it Feeney plays it off and Graham wins yet another header as he knocks it down for Conway. The adventurous left back has a pop, and a good one at that, but it's straight at Romero and the Argentine hangs on.
