    Time:90'
    • Manchester United
    • Chelsea
    • 90+4' There goes the final whistle! Hazard with a shot. Straight at De Gea before the whistle sounds. Chelsea will be disappointed not to have won that match. Better side in the second half.
    • 90+3' Another superb stop by De Gea to prevent a blistering effort by Hazard from hitting the net.
    • 90+2' Chelsea on the break. Oscar picks out Torres from 22 yards, but he can only knock the shot straight into the arms of De Gea.
    • 89' Stunning stop by David De Gea to keep the ball out with a leg after Mata had turned Evans inside out in the home box. Almost a stunning winning goal for Chelsea.
    • 88' Valencia sums up United's toils in this second half as he lifts the ball straight out of play.
    • 87' Torres with a chance, but his shot is blocked by Evans. Chelsea well and truly on the up here.
    • 86' Ferdinand runs into the back of Torres before picking up the Chelsea striker off the deck. Good job the referee never saw that or Ferdinand would have been off.
    • 85' Mata back doing some superb work to win the ball from Cleverley.
    • 84' Mata again leading United a merry dance. Thumps the shot at goal from 25 yards, but straight down the throat of De Gea in the home goal.
    • 83' Mata back on the park which is good news for Chelsea. Seems to be moving freely which is even better news for the visiting side.
    • 82' Chelsea have only lost one of their last 38 FA Cup games outright, winning 31 and drawing six.
    • 81' Mata turns in the United box. Clutching his ankle. Has twist his ankle turning Ferdinand. Will need some treatment here.
    • 80' Evans clears the ball long down the middle. Van Persie gives chase, but Cech is off his line to collect the loose ball.
    • 79' Kagawa has departed the scene to be replaced by Danny Welbeck for United. Game really opening up here.
    • 78' Mata enjoying the freedom of Old Trafford at the moment as he drops deep to pick up possession. United forced to cut out a pass destined for Torres after needlessly losing the ball.
    • 77' Off goes Ba, and on comes the figure of Ferdinand Torres.
    • 76' Ball breaks to Cleverley from the Rooney corner-kick, but he balloons the volley miles over the bar.
    • 75' Luiz heads clear the Rooney free-kick before Van Persie sees a shot deflect wide of goal. United have the corner.
    • 74' Hazard is going to be booked here for a late challenge. United have a free-kick 30 yards from the Chelsea goal.
    • 73' Decent clearance by Luiz after Kagawa had come up with the cutback from the byline.
    • 72' Ferdinand winning the ball on the edge of his box. But this match suiting the counter attacking style of Chelsea, who look potent every time they break up the park.
    • 71' Wouldn't bet against a winning goal at either end now. Cahill well posted to clear the cross from Kagawa.
    • 70' Chelsea suddenly sensing a winning goal, but Cole is penalised for a high boot challenging Rafael.
    • 69' Evra sees his ball cut out by Cahill. United really need to steady the ship here. They are rocking.
    • 68' Great ball by Ba to play in Ramires. This is a quite superb response by Chelsea. Fully deserve to be level at 2-2.
    • 67' GOAL! Ramires slides the ball into the net from the edge of the United box and Chelsea are level at 2-2 Brilliant sweeping move and superb play by Ramires.
    • 66' Luiz beating Rooney to the ball from Van Persie's pass as Chelsea look to break up the park at speed.
    • 65' United keeping the ball well for the first time in this half, but Valencia's pass is not the best. A goalkick to the visitors.
    • 64' Ba can't control the ball up from Luiz. Chelsea utterly dominant in possession at the moment.
    • 63' On comes Van Persie for United, and off goes Hernandez. United fans trying to encourage their side to find a third goal.
    • 62' Hazard just too deep with the cross looking for Ba. United have fallen out of this game somewhat. Change coming here for United.
    • 61' That was a glorious move. Can't really say that Chelsea haven't deserved that. The visitors have been pressing forward for the past 10-15 minutes.
    • 60' GOAL! Brilliant stuff from Chelsea as Mata picks out Hazard inside the United box. One touch and he curls the ball high into the net beyond De Gea. No chance for the home goalkeeper, and Chelsea are right back in this one.
    • 59' Luiz smashes a shot at goal from distance, but De Gea makes a decent enough stop. Chelsea fighting the good fight here.
    • 58' Ba tries to escape from Ferdinand, but can't cut through the middle. Chelsea certainly not lacking possession here.
    • 57' Oscar on the move, but he fails to control the ball as Rafael takes it away from him to move forward.
    • 56' Luiz races into a rash, late challenge on Rafael. Poor tackle. And he is booked for the one.
    • 55' Hazard tries a little chip, but Evans is well posted to head out of the danger zone. United have done that particularly well today.
    • 54' Mikel is also introduced for Lampard, which might not be greeted with too much happiness by the small posse of visiting fans.
    • 53' United to shuffle their pack as Hazard arrives to take over from Moses.
    • 52' Chance for Ramires as he raced towards the United box, but he knocks the shot wide of goal. That was a decent opportunity to work De Gea.
    • 51' Cahill not hanging about as he thumps the loose ball clear with Cech never going to get there.
    • 50' Juan Mata has scored five goals and assisted seven in 10 previous appearances in the FA Cup.
    • 49' Valencia smashes the ball into the middle, but cut out well by David Luiz at his near post. Another goal now would surely bury the visiting side.
    • 48' Not sure what is going on with Chelsea as Cole lifts a pass straight out of play to hand United the chance to apply even more pressure.
    • 47' Rafael on the run from Valencia's cute little pass, but Luiz does well to cut out the danger and clear from his own half.
    • 46' Off we go then with the second half of this match.
    • 45+2' Rooney tries an audacious chip from distance. Fine effort, but a couple of yards over the bar. There goes the whistle for the break. A 2-0 lead for United.
    • 45+1' We are into two minutes of added time to this first period.
    • 44' Nani is going to depart injured here to be replaced by Antonio Valencia for United.
    • 43' Roy Hodgson looking on from the stands with some interest. Wonder what he is making of Ferdinand's performance?
    • 42' Chelsea perhaps unfortunate to trail by two goals, but United have benefited from a quick start. Nani on the deck here needing some treatment.
    • 41' Ba with the cross at the other end, but Ferdinand is well positioned to make another timely block.
    • 40' Luiz halts the cross from Nani after he had been sent down a flank by Rooney. This game
    • 39' Evra comes up with a brilliant tackle on Moses. United look to break. Azpilicueta has picked up a booking for hauling back Hernandez.
    • 38' Chelsea certainly with plenty of possesion here. Cole's cross just too high for Moses. Chelsea really fighting back well here.
    • 37' Another chance for Chelsea. Moses plays a lovely one-two with Mata. Great backheel but the former Wigan man drills the shot wide of goal.
    • 36' Oscar goes beyond Rafael, but can't come up with the cross. Real frustration for Chelsea.
    • 35' The Chelsea fans can be heard in the stands. Better moments for them as Moses' cross is cut out by Carrick. But Azpilicueta is caught offside. Another Chelsea attack move hits the buffers.
    • 34' Ferdinand well positioned to head clear the cross from Cole on the run down his left flank.
    • 33' United again with this patient series of passes in their own half. Chelsea trying to press the ball as much as possible in the home half.
    • 32' Luiz clatters into Hernandez off the ball. No real harm done and United give the ball back to Chelsea after the striker is restored to his feet.
    • 31' Brilliant clearing header by Ferdinand after Moses had come up with a delightful cross. Really strong stuff by Ferdinand.
    • 30' Rafael does well to snuff out the cross by Oscar, but not clearing the danger there.
    • 29' Chance for Ba, but he goes for goal from distance rather than try to play in Moses. Bad decision-making. Easy take for De Gea.
    • 28' Rafa Benitez being taunted by the United fans. He can only look and watch with some dismay at the moment.
    • 27' Cahill leans back and smashes an effort miles over the bar from distance. United will take those all day long.
    • 26' Moses falling asleep there with Evra on the run. Cleverley then smashes a shot at goal from distance, but straight into the arms of Cech.
    • 25' Cech brings off a fine stop to halt the shot from Rooney after he was played in by Evra before the giant keeper swipes over the bar from Luiz's header.
    • 24' Hernandez almost in for the third goal. Lovely cross by Nani, but the striker flicks the ball wide with his left foot.
    • 23' Great play by Mata. Slides the path to Lampard, but his shot is straight at De Gea. Real chance for Lampard to score, but not taken.
    • 22' Nani throws a long ball up the park from deep, but straight into the arms of Cech. United don't really need to chase this match.
    • 21' Oscar collects the ball out wide. Goes short to Mata. Lampard collects. He picks out Azpilicueta, but the cross is disappointing.
    • 20' Moses drives the ball at Evans. Plenty of pace on the shot, but solid defending by the Northern Ireland stopper.
    • 19' Chelsea trying to get on the ball, but a poor pass by Cahill is too strong for Azpilicueta to keep in on the run. Sloppy by Cheslea.
    • 18' Wayne Rooney has scored seven goals in his last eight appearances at Old Trafford in all competitions.
    • 17' Evra does well to see off Moses from Mata's cross. Ba also in there sniffing about. But United not under any real pressure.
    • 16' Chelsea have scored just once in their previous five FA Cup games against Manchester United at Old Trafford. They need at least two here to stay alive in this tournament.
    • 15' Ferdinand clears the danger from Mata's free-kick before Azpilicueta is deemed to be guilty of fouling. United continue to lead 2-0.
    • 14' Free-kick chance for Chelsea from a similar position at the other end. Mata going to swing this ball in here.
    • 13' Think it was Luiz who missed the header in the middle. Evans was also in there. Lovely free-kick by Rooney. Meanwhile, Mata tries to get the ball moving at the other end.
    • 12' Suddenly life is good again for United. But not so bright for Chelsea, who are in deep, deep trouble in this Cup clash.
    • 11' GOAL! Rooney with the free-kick. Goes straight through several blue shirts before nestling in the net. Awful defending by Chelsea not to clear that. Cech left with no chance.
    • 10' Moses guilty of a clear foul on Nani as he sped up the park. And United will have a free-kick just outside of the visiting box to be swung in by Rooney.
    • 9' Oscar with the floated corner. Headed clear by Evans. United look to break to the other end.
    • 8' Lampard drills a shot at goal. First chance hits Oscar before the second effort deflects wide for a Chelsea corner.
    • 7' Javier Hernandez has now netted in six of his last seven games against Chelsea in all competitions.
    • 6' The home fans seem to be in party mood here. United keeping this ball with some relish. Chelsea can't get on the ball at the moment.
    • 5' What a fantastic goal that is. Superb stuff from United, who are looking to get Real Madrid out of their system. Doing a good job with this start.
    • 4' GOAL! Hernandez lifts the ball over Cech and Manchester United have the lead. Brilliant ball by Carrick and the header catches Chelsea sleeping. A 1-0 lead for the home side.
    • 3' Luiz quick to win the ball ahead of Rooney. United looking to get on the ball with some purpose. Cech forced to react quickly to clear the danger under pressure from Kagawa.
    • 2' Ba dashes onto a long ball down the pitch from Cech. Fires a quick shot at goal, but the ball races wide of the target. That was a half-chance.
    • 1' Manchester United get the match off and running.

    • 16:20 Time for some Opta stats: "This will be the 11th FA Cup tie between Manchester United and Chelsea; The Red Devils lead the head-to-head record by eight wins to two, although Chelsea did win the last meeting (the 2007 final). Chelsea have never won in five previous FA Cup games at Old Trafford, losing four, drawing one and scoring just one goal in total."
    • 16:15 Sir Alex Ferguson: "I'm not going to kick anyone when they're lying down. It’s not my style. My concern is Manchester United. What happens at Chelsea doesn't really affect me. Chelsea have a terrific record in the FA Cup, probably the best of any team in the last decade. It doesn't matter when you play Chelsea or who's in charge, we'll have a hard game."
    • 16:10 Chelsea haven't had an easy week either after losing to Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League. Benitez is hoping for some rare respite today. Benitez relishing cup clash
    • 16:05 United need to get that Nani red card against Manchester United out of their heads and focus on this game, as they aim to win the FA Cup for the first time since 2004. I can't believe it has been that long. Rooney has never won the FA Cup for United. Ferguson: Rooney will be offered new deal
    • 16:00 The notable team news from the Chelsea end of things is that captain John Terry again has to make do with a place on the bench. There's little talk of his future though, as we know Rafa Benitez will be off at the end of the season.
    • 15:55 TEAMS: Manchester United: De Gea, Rafael, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Carrick, Cleverley, Nani, Rooney, Kagawa, Hernandez. Subs: Amos, Van Persie, Valencia, Anderson, Vidic, Young, Welbeck. /// Chelsea: Cech, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, Mata, Oscar, Moses, Ba. Subs: Turnbull, Ivanovic, Terry, Bertrand, Mikel, Hazard, Torres.
    • 15:50 It appears reports of the demise of Wayne Rooney's Manchester United career have been greatly exaggerated. He starts in place of Robin van Persie after a week in which it has been said he will be sold this summer.
    • 15:45 Hello and welcome to our coverage of the FA Cup quarter-final between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford. The big team news is that Wayne Rooney starts for United.
