All three goals came well into the second half with United going 2-0 up at Old Trafford before a late strike gave the visitors some hope of forcing a replay.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side will face the winners of Middlesbrough or Chelsea next with the latter eased to 11/2 by BetVictor.

Manchester City are now on offer at 7/4 market leaders with a number of firms while Everton are 9/2 third best at Sky Bet and Boylesports ahead of their replay against Oldham.

Millwall are the shortest price of the teams outside of the Premier League at 40/1 (general) with Blackburn (50/1, bet365) up next for them in the capital.

BetVictor and Ladbrokes have cut Manchester United to 20s for the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League treble while Sky Bet go 16/1.

Coral make them 22s to repeat their heroics of 1999, 11/5 to go on and lift the FA Cup and 15/8 that the final is an all-Manchester affair.

"The Champions League will be the biggest test to Manchester United but with Sir Alex Ferguson's side having the upper hand against Real Madrid in their last 16 clash, it would take a brave man to write off United's treble ambitions," said spokesman Tim Reynolds.
