  • And that's your lot. United came flying out of the traps and led 2-0 after just 11 minutes but rather lost their way afterwards and can have no complaints at having to do it all over again at Stamford Bridge. Rafael Benitez was jeered by the Chelsea fans as he made a double substitution in the second half but one of those he introduced - Hazard - sparked the comeback and Ramires secured the replay for the Blues.

  • Oscar's corner is diverted to Hazard by someone at the front post - not clear who - but the Belgian's shot is easy for De Gea.

  • Hazard's drilled shot is palmed away by De Gea, Evans slides it straight to Cole but he can't get it out of his feet and has to settle for a corner.

  • Throw comes to nothing and Chelsea spring on the counter. Oscar slides it to Torres but his shot is easy for De Gea.

  • Late throw for United deep in Chelsea territory.

  • Carrick caught on the ball in his own half by a combination of Mata and Torres - but it's only because the latter has impeded him.

  • We're into four minutes of added time.

  • Evra carries it out but Luiz outmuscles van Persie and carries it forward. He picks out Mata with a brilliant ball and the Spaniard takes it down onto his left and looks set to clip it into the corner when De Gea thrusts out a leg to push it away for a corner. Brilliant save. That was game over otherwise.

  • Ramires tries to wriggle clear on the edge of the United box but can't do so. Again the hosts clearly poorly, though. They can't get out.

  • Carrick slides it to the advancing Valencia but his attempted ball to van Persie sails behind for a goal-kick. Poor.

  • Corner comes to nothing and Mikel then gifts possession to Carrick as Chelsea look to press.

  • Mata's reverse ball to Torres allows him to get a shot away but Evans is with him every step of the way and it deflects behind for a corner.

  • Great tackle from Carrick on Oscar centrally wins the ball back after a decent spell of United possession falters on the edge of the box. Comes to nothing, though.

  • Van Persie tries to link with Welbeck on halfway but United just can't get it going.

  • Mikel does well to get the ball down in central midfield. Chelsea push forward and Mata - now back on, obviously - fires in a right-footed shot which De Gea gathers easily.

  • Just caught a quick replay and looks like Mata rolled his ankle as he turned inside Ferdinand. He's back to his feet and hobbling but will obviously be keen to continue.

  • Evans and Ferdinand combine to clear Mata's cross from the right but Chelsea just keep coming and coming. This time Mata turns inside Ferdinand and goes down in a heap. As the ball is cleared, van Persie is pulled up for a high foot and Mata is still down. He'll need treatment.

  • You can sense the tension among the home fans here - they are not enjoying this one but.

  • Ball whipped in from the United left but van Persie is penalised for a nudge on Luiz centrally.

  • Hazard and Mata look to link up in the United box but it doesn't come off - just - and United are able to clear eventually. United break on the counter and van Persie's shot is deflected. Looks to be heading for a corner when a Superman effort from Cech allows him to slap it out for a throw.
