    • 21.43 Ryan Tunnicliffe’s dad apparently put a tenner on his son playing for Manchester United’s first team when he was nine years old. He made his debut in the League Cup and his father stands to pick up £10,000 tomorrow morning. Nice work if you can get it.
    • 21.36 The whistle sounds at Old Trafford. A 2-1 win for Manchester United against Newcastle. The home side are through to the last 16.
    • 21.25 Five minutes left at Old Trafford. Cisse has saw an effort come back off the bar. The home side lead 2-1 in the death throes of this match.
    • 21.15 15 minutes or so left at Old Trafford as Gosling sees a shot spin narrowly over the bar with De Gea rooted to the spot. Newcastle searching for a leveller.
    • 21.10 Hernandez sees a shot come back off the bar. So unfortunate. Man Utd close to restoring their two-goal advantage.
    • 21.03 GOAL! Newcastle's substitutes combine having just arrived on the park. Lovely ball by Shane Ferguson and Papiss Cisse rises to nod his first goal in nine games into the net. Newcastle back in this one. Man Utd lead 2-1.
    • 21.01 GOAL! Cleverley nets his first goal for Manchester United in 19 appearances. Cool, composed finish from the edge of the area. United double their money. They lead 2-0.
    • 20.52 Williamson rises in the home box, but the ball drops over the bar. Newcastle continue to provide a threat.
    • 20.47 Manchester United get the ball rolling for the start of the second period at Old Trafford.
    • 20.31 The whistle sounds for half-time at Old Trafford as Manchester United traipse off holding a 1-0 lead courtesy of Anderson's goal.
    • 20.29 GOAL! Anderson finds the opening goal for United. 25 yards from goal. He beats Elliott and the ball flies in via a post. Brilliant goal. Manchester United have the lead two minutes before the break.
    • 20.20 Hernandez feeds Cleverley on the run, but he somehow slips the shot wide of the post with just Elliott to beat. Should have been the opening goal for the home side.
    • 20.11 Brilliant ball by Rooney to send Welbeck racing clear, but Elliott gets down quickly to keep the shot out from the edge of the visiting box. We remain at 0-0 in this one.
    • 20.01 Golden chance for Gosling in the United box, but he lifts the volley over the bar. What a chance that was! Great header across the goal by Amoebi. First time the visitors have really threatened.
    • 19.50 United have opened up really well here with Buttner lifting a shot over the bar and Hernandez nodding wide in the opening moments. Bright start to the match by the home side.
    • 19.45 A huge smile on Darren Fletcher's face as he leads Manchester United out. No delay in the match. Plenty of empty seats at Old Trafford. We are off and running.
    • 19.35 Bit of news for you from Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher start for United, but there may be a delay in proceedings due to heavy flooding in London that is stopping fans from getting to the ground.
