As it happened

  1. 1914: 

    That is a wrap from us for one day then. We will bring you all the best quotes later on on the BBC Sport website, and you can join Aimee Lewis on Tuesday for your next batch of live text gold.

    See you later.

  2. 1914: 

    Steve in Cumbria on text via 81111: "Everton look to be the big losers due to the Wigan result and the FA cup draw - much less likely to qualify for Europe now."

  3. 1910: 

    Ramires can really finish on the break can't he? Took his goal clinically today.

  4. 1910: 

    Liam in Stockport on text via 81111: "Genius from Rafa! Brought Mikel on to give more space for Ramires to go forward to devastating effect."

  5. 1907: 

    Richard Ford: "Chelsea v Millwall final anyone?!?"

  6. 1905: 

    Today's matches have left Tottenham in third place in the Premier League table, but Chelsea are two points behind them with a game in hand. Liverpool meanwhile are now within two points of fifth-placed Arsenal, and seven points shy of a Champions League place.

    Newcastle are up to 13th place.

  7. 1900: 

    Sam Heaton: "Could potentially be a Manchester derby and a Lancashire derby in the FA cup semi-finals what is everyone moaning about?"

  8. 1900: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham
    Pepe Reina

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers on the injured Pepe Reina: "It was disappointing because we thought Reina would probably make it today.

    "He had a tight calf in a fitness test this morning and unfortunately for him he didn't get through it. Hopefully by next week he'll be fine.

    "Big credit to Brad Jones, who came in at the last minute. He equipped himself terrifically today and made a great stop, especially in the first half.

    "We'll see how Pepe is next week."

  9. 1857: 

    Stu, Milton Keynes on text: "Re Phil Robins at 1847 the final will not be a non-event, not for the 3 smaller clubs and their fans fighting for that Final place. The FA Cup is not all about the big clubs. Makes it far more interesting."

  10. 1853: 

    Manchester City haven't met Chelsea in the FA Cup in 43 years, with the last meeting coming at Stamford Bridge in 1971, ending in a 3-0 win for the away side.

    But if it's Manchester United v City it will be the third season in a row the two sides have met in the competition. They met in the semi-final in 2011, while United won at the Etihad last season when Vincent Kompany was sent off.

  11. 1847: 

    Tom Sparkes: "Groans up and down the country at that FA Cup draw. Apart from in Wigan of course."

    Olawale Ibraheem: "What a mouth watering draw here. A cracking semi-final of the FA cup. Chelsea or United against City, bring it on at Wembley."

    Phil Robins: "What a terrible draw... The final will be a non-event unfortunately."

  12. 1846: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea
    Rafael Benitez

    Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez on whether his side deserved to beat Manchester United: "I think so. Especially in the second half we were on top of them, created the best chances and were controlling the game. Juan Mata told me that David De Gea made a great save [at the end], so it was unlucky but a great save."

    On the draw against Manchester City: "We have to think about the first game and then afterwards we will think about City. It will be tough and difficult because United are a great side."

  13. 1843: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Newcastle 2-1 Stoke
    Alan Pardew

    Newcastle boss Alan Pardew: "It's a massive win. Papiss Cisse is a natural goalscorer. It popped up and a lot strikers would have snatched at that, but he has the confidence to let it come all the way down and smash it home. We go home in a much different situation than we would have been if it hadn't gone in. This goal will do him the world of good. We've improved dramatically and needed to.

    "This is as good a Stoke team as I've seen. Tony Pulis will be proud today, he'll be absolutely desperate they've lost, They didn't deserve to. But we've won and it and sets us up lovely for Thursday in the Europa League. We've got a great European night at St James's Park to look forward to. It definitely gives us a chance to look at the top 10, where we should be."

  14. 1840: 

    What do we make of that FA Cup draw then? Two potentially massive stories. Will Millwall make it two FA Cup finals in nine years? Can Wigan make the final?

    Will we have a second all-Manchester semi in two years?

  15. 1840: 

    James Vause: "Mikel was an absolute Rafalation in midfield when he came on."

    Alistair McGeorge: "Lucky there, should have killed it by half time. Valencia was great last season but he's been woeful lately. Terrible today."

    Firas: "Chelsea fans have to give credit to Benitez. Game changing sub! Well done you Blues!!!"

  16. 1840: 

    All Manchester semi-final?

  17. 1837: 

    Millwall/Blackburn v Wigan

    Manchester United/Chelsea v Manchester City

    The semi-finals will be played at Wembley on 13 & 14 April.

  18. 1837: 

    Here comes the draw then.

  19. 1835: 

    For those of you asking - we don't know when the replay will be staged between Chelsea and Manchester United. It has yet to be decided. TBC.

  20. 1834: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham
    Andre Villas-Boas

    Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas: "It was a pity for us because we had some good moments in football. The key moment of the game was when we could have gone 3-1 up through Gylfi Sigurdsson. It's football and we have to hopefully get ourselves back together and go on another good run."

  21. 1832: 

    Tom Barber on text via 81111: "If Rafa had us playing as well as we did towards the end there in most of his games then I'm sure he would have a lot more supporters at Chelsea. Not all about his past, but performances. Great result though, well done Chelsea."

  22. 1831: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea
    Juan Mata

    Chelsea scorer Juan Mata: "In the second half we had so many chances to score and David De Gea was impressive today. Today is a day to be proud of this team. We went 2-0 down but we tried until the end but we had the chances. De Gea saved with his feet at the end but I tried and now we have a chances in the replay."

  23. 1830: 

    The FA Cup semi-final draw is imminent...

  24. 1830: 

    Fergus Weir: "Lucky to escape with a draw. Valencia was awful, why is he continuing to get in the team ahead of Ashley Young?"

    Aman Sheth: "Got to say this, Valencia was awful. Never again. Nani going off against almost cost us."

    Mark O: "A tale of two parts: Chelsea with Lamps and without Lamps, now which do you prefer?"

  25. 1828:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "Chelsea fans have forgotten the anti-Rafael Benitez chants and celebrate a replay they fully deserved after a superb last half hour. In those closing stages there was only going to be one winner and that was Chelsea. And credit to Benitez for making those changes."

  26. 1826: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Newcastle 2-1 Stoke
    Tony Pulis

    Stoke manager Tony Pulis: "Papiss Cisse could easily be off the pitch. He raised his hands twice - he pushed Andy Wilkinson and then he slapped Ryan Shawcross. He raised his hands and caught Ryan round the face.

    "Away from home we've played better this season than at any time in our five years in the Premier League, we've been in more games, we just haven't been able to get over the line. It's really frustrating and disappointing because the lads have put such an effort in again today."

  27. 1825:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "What a pathetic effort from Fernando Torres at the end after a great counter from Oscar.

    "It was a game of two halves. United got complacent, but let's give Rafa Benitez huge credit.

    "His changes worked, and without David de Gea's save from Juan Mata, they would have won."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  28. 1824: 

    Stunning second half from Chelsea! They can have every right to think they should have won that in the end. Amazing turnaround.

  29. 1824: 
    FULL-TIME- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea
  30. 1822: 
    CLOSE!- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea break away, Oscar leading the charge, he finds Fernando Torres...

    Nothing to see here. Tame shot. But there's still time for Eden Hazard to test David De Gea again! Another solid save.

  31. 1821: 
    INJURY TIME- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Into four minutes of added time...

  32. 1820:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "What a save! That is unbelievable after some tremendous skill from Juan Mata."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  33. 1819: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Oh what a save! Juan Mata almost scores a brilliant winner, plucking a ball out of the sky with his instep, turning inside Jonny Evans and shooting for the corner but David De Gea saves with his feet! That was superb skill, like Dennis Bergkamp at Filbert Street...

  34. 1817:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "Valencia has no confidence. It never looked like he was going to go past his man there, that cross was so poor."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  35. 1817: 
    Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    You're not wrong Andrew (1816). Manchester United have not kept the ball at all. Paul Scholes will be horrified.

  36. 1816: 

    Andrew Priestley: "Haven't seen Manchester United this sloppy in possession in a long time. No out ball, no one showing for the pass."

    Naomi Downie: "Looks like Nani going off is the game changer yet again."

  37. 1815: 
    Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Rio Ferdinand runs a bit naughtily into the back of Fernando Torres and brings him down, but Torres is then in on the back of more great play from Juan Mata. His shot is blocked, but it is all Chelsea in the last five minutes now.

  38. 1814:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "You can only sense one winner here and it is Chelsea."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  39. 1813:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "Tension in the Old Trafford air. Ferguson and Benitez yards apart in the technical area as the game enters this closing phase."

  40. 1812: 
    Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Juan Mata is back on. This has been an incredible second half. Chelsea were dead and buried, 2-0 down at Old Trafford with their own fans on their back but somehow they have grasped control of this tie. United have crumbled.

    Mata then finds space again and shoots low straight at David De Gea.

  41. 1811: 

    Daniel Capurro: "Valenica has been feeble since he came on. Looks like an out of his depth teen."

  42. 1810: 
    Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea are suddenly playing superbly now, Ashley Cole opens the defence to find Juan Mata who cuts inside - but rolls his ankle and is down in a heap. ouch indeed. This could be bad news.

    But he's suddenly back on his feet! All appears to be well.

  43. 1809:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "Demba Ba off and Fernando Torres on. 13 minutes to remember what he used to do to Manchester United."

  44. 1807: 
    Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    I think this falls into the 'proper' cup tie bracket now.

    Fernando Torres almost has a chance as Ramires cuts the ball back to him but Michael Carrick steals it from his toes. Eden Hazard and Oscar then combine nicely at one end but United clear, before Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck almost break at the other. Rip-roaring stuff...

  45. 1805: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Danny Welbeck is now on in place of Shinji Kagawa which means that Welbeck, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are now all on for the final 15 minutes.

    And talking of changes, here comes Fernando Torres in place of Demba Ba. No. Surely not?

  46. 1804: 
    YELLOW CARD- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    Eden Hazard goes into the book for nibbling at the back of Tom Cleverley. Maybe Nani did more defensively for Manchester United then we give him credit for. United have conceded four goals without him on the pitch this week now...

  47. 1804: 
    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Injured Tottenham midfielder Sandro: "Don't worry guys... Keep going..."

  48. 1802: 

    Rich Allum: "Does Rafa know what he's doing?!?"

  49. 1800: 
    Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    There will be some frantic rewriting going on in that Old Trafford press box from Phil and his colleagues. For the best part of an hour Chelsea offered nothing but now they are right back in it. It's anyone's game now.

  50. 1800:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old Trafford

    "Chelsea's fans were directing abuse at Rafael Benitez not so long ago - now they are thinking of victory after a stirring comeback. Some turnaround and Benitez did not move a muscle when Ramires scored. Bet he was tempted."

  51. 1759: 

    Mark McDermott: "Not long before Liverpool take their rightful place in the top-four again. Just need to keep hold of Suarez and spend wisely."

    Philipp K T: "Why can't Ramires play like this every game?!"

    Jacques: "Now there's the clinical Chelsea of old! Great counter attack!"

  52. 1759:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea

    "What a great run by Ramires. Wayne Rooney was trying to get back and he could not.

    "It was much better from Chelsea. I thought the goalkeeper was unlucky there as a bobble seemed to take it over his glove."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  53. 1756: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea - Ramires (68 mins)

    Well, well, well! Chelsea have stunned Old Trafford, they've stunned themselves and they've certainly stunned their own fans who were in a state of revolt just 15 minutes ago. They have been much improved since that double change and draw level with a cracking counter-attack. Demba Ba feeds Oscar, who then plays in Ramires on the overlap, the Brazilian has the nous and the composure to drag the ball back on to his left foot and just passes it into the far corner. Twenty minutes to go!

  54. 1755:  
    Robbie Fowler, Former Liverpool and England striker

    "A quality win over a quality Spurs team.... Definitely going the right way"

  55. 1755: 

    Gareth Bale's scoring run comes to an end. Just the two assists for him today - rubbish...

  56. 1754: 

    Jonni Slater: "Benitez isn't a tactical genius for bringing Hazard on. He should have started him in the first place!"

    Maani: "Suarez wins in the battle between Suarez and Bale."

  57. 1753: 
    Man Utd 2-1 Chelsea

    So we are into the last half hour of today's action. Can Manchester United hang on? Chelsea's tails are definitely up.

  58. 1752: 
    FULL-TIME- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    A great game comes to an end. Superb entertainment.

  59. 1751: 
    Man Utd 2-1 Chelsea

    Rafael didn't close Eden Hazard down Lee because the Belgian hit his shot so early. It was one touch and instant shot - brilliant from the forward.

  60. 1751: 

    Jack Jeffree: "Well, Hazard just shut a lot of Chelsea fans up."

    Lee Scott: "Great finish from Hazard but I could see that coming from a mile off, why did no one close him down?"

  61. 1749:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-1 Chelsea
  62. 1748: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 2-1 Chelsea - Eden Hazard (59 mins)

    Another Belgian! They're everywhere today. Substitute Eden Hazard collects a pass from Juan Mata and curls in a a beauty from the corner of the area. Tactical genius from Rafael Benitez to bring him on?

    Eden Hazard
  63. 1747: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea have a shot of sorts, David Luiz dips in an effort from 30-odd yards which David De Gea unconvincingly shovels clear.

  64. 1746: 

    Will Rider on text via 81111: "In what possible alternative universe is Mikel more likely to score than Frank Lampard? Unbelievable."

  65. 1745: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Tottenham continue with the self harm as Jan Vertonghen takes a heavy touch inside the penalty area, Glen Johnson nips in to stab the ball away from him and he goes to ground. Vertonghen has a nervous look at the referee but there's nothing given on this occasion. Last few minutes now...

  66. 1745: 

    Tom Van Haaren: "Talk about shooting yourself in the foot..."

    Omofomah Leonard: "Impossible job for Rafael Benitez."

    Abdul Karim: "What a pass by Defoe to Suarez!"

  67. 1743: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea have brought on Jon Mikel Obi and Eden Hazard as the Chelsea fans chant "We want the Special One"...

    Rafael Benitez
  68. 1742: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Lewis Holtby is on for Jake Livermore as Spurs go for a leveller. We could have a real Des Lynam of a Grandstand finish here. Gareth Bale shoots from 40 yards, in true Danny Shittu style, and hits the roof of the net.

  69. 1740: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham - Steven Gerrard (82 mins)

    Steven Gerrard steps up and slots the ball into the corner, sending Hugo Lloris the wrong way. Superb comeback from Liverpool.

  70. 1740: 
    PENALTY TO LIVERPOOL- Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Luis Suarez goes down in the area! Benoit Assou-Ekotto is rash, jumping into Suarez as he nods the ball on and a penalty is given...

    Luis Suarez
  71. 1739: 

    Chris Palmer: "Ashley Cole's hairstyle=failure on all levels."

    I would say that Cole is at least five years too old for that hairstyle...

  72. 1738: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    It's all Manchester United again after the break, but Ashley Cole is strong to shut out Antonio Valencia as he looks to cross in from the right.

  73. 1736: 
    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    A diving argument has broken out - but neither Luis Suarez or Gareth Bale are involved on this occasion. It's Danny Sturridge breaking into the area but he hits the deck - nothing given either way.

  74. 1735: 
    KICK-OFF- Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Nothing happening in the first minute or so as we are back under way at Old Trafford...

  75. 1735: 

    Dave Price in Belfast on text via 81111: "Walker needs to get his focus and concentration levels back up and then we'll hopefully see the quality defender we know he can be."

  76. 1735: 

    Statisticians Opta: "4 - No side has scored fewer goals in the final 15 minutes of Premier League matches this season than Liverpool (4). Clinch."

  77. 1731: 
    CLOSE!- Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Lovely counter attack from Liverpool as Stewart Downing skips away from his man on the right and put over a teasing cross for Daniel Sturridge, but he can only steer his header into the side-netting.

  78. 1729: 
    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    That was such a bizarre goal to concede. It has given Liverpool life now though as there are 20 minutes left and they look lively.

  79. 1727: 

    Alfie Lee-Marcus: "Typical of Walker's season. Shocking!"

  80. 1724: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham - Stewart Downing (66 mins)

    A comedy of errors! First, Kyle Walker plays a horrendous backpass from the halfway line, a shocker. It's like Craig Burley in the FA Cup semi-final in 1995, smashing it blindly back towards goal. Second, Hugo Lloris comes flying out of his goal and gets nowhere near it, allowing Stewart Downing in. Third, Downing for some reason shoots straight at Jan Vertonghen on the line when he had the whole goal to aim at, but it goes through the defender's legs and in. Disaster zone all round.

  81. 1724: 

    Statisticians Opta: "2 - Both of Gareth Bale's assists this season in the Premier League have come against Liverpool. Strings."

  82. 1724:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "Chelsea enjoyed more possession towards the end of the first half but Manchester United in complete command after those two early goals. What can Rafael Benitez say to inspire a Chelsea recovery?"

  83. 1723: 

    Phil on text via 81111: "Shocking from Chelsea. Since RDM went season has gone downhill, inept manager, lazy defenders, poor strikers and a board that needs overhauling. We need Jose Mourinho ASAP."

    Freddie in Newcastle on text via 81111: "Spurs as a two man team: that's a 100% improvement on what people were saying a week ago. Give it until the end of the season and people might finally start saying Spurs are a good team."

    Lisa in London on text via 81111: "The only plus I can find as a Chelsea fan is that we haven't dropped any league points today!"

  84. 1722: 
    Liverpool 1-2 Tottenham

    Liverpool are trying gamely to get a foothold back in the game, but they can't stop Spurs at the moment. Spurs will only be two points behind Manchester City if they can hang on to this one. Second on the cards?

  85. 1720: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    As Robbie Savage alludes to there, Antonio Valencia was a late change for Manchester United in that first-half, replacing Nani. Second early bath of the week for Nani...

  86. 1720:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "Antonio Valencia needs a game to get his confidence back. He is not running past people any more, he was superb last season when he was doing that, he needs a good game today."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  87. 1720: 
    HALF-TIME- Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea
  88. 1718: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Liverpool 1-2 Tottenham

    Spurs are flying now. This is the form they showed against Inter in midweek, and Liverpool are hanging on to the ropes here. Mousa Dembele again just walks away from two or three challenges before smashing in a shot which nearly lifts Brad Jones off his feet. Someone stop the Belgians...

  89. 1717: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Liverpool 1-2 Tottenham

    Well this is an odd one. Joe Allen - who we were told pre-match needed shoulder surgery - is on in place of Philippe Coutinho for Liverpool.

  90. 1715: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Liverpool 1-2 Tottenham

    Almost three! Gareth Bale leaves Steven Gerrard for dead with a lung-buster of a run down the right, he stands up a cross which runs through to Gylfi Sigurdsson inside the area, his low shot is then turned on to the post by a combination of goalkeeper and defender. Could he have passed instead? Maybe.

  91. 1714: 
    YELLOW CARD- Liverpool 1-2 Tottenham

    Jan Vertonghen is now booked for handball as he blocks a raking through-ball.

  92. 1714: 

    Dan Irvine: "Spurs are such a two-man team"

  93. 1713:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "Wild finish from Moses prompts chants of "Are You Torres In Disguise?" from the Stretford End."

  94. 1711: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 1-2 Tottenham - Jan Vertonghen (53 mins)

    The Belgians are taking over the world! Jan Vertonghen gets his second of the day. Gareth Bale's free-kick is not dealt with at all, it just hits Daniel Agger on the face and bounces out, and Vertonghen adjusts his feet brilliantly to crash in a left-footed shot from 10 yards. Really well finished.

    Jan Vertonghen
  95. 1710: 
    CLOSE!- Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

    Liverpool waste a good attack as their front three fail to combine, before Tottenham counter at pace. Gareth Bale drives through the middle and plays in Jermain Defoe on his right, but the England striker's low drive is easily held by Brad Jones.

  96. 1708:  
    Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker:Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "Rooney showing what was missed against Real Madrid."

  97. 1708: 

    Donovan Dunn: "I know he's scored a couple, but Ba seems to have lost that edge he had at Newcastle. Just not same player in my opinion at Chelsea."

    Charlie Ratcliffe: "Rafa must go or we won't make top 4! Put JT and Lamps in charge until the end of the season."

    Isaac Wolofar: "Is there anyone better than Carrick in that role today?"

  98. 1707: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Apparently Chelsea have lost just one of the last 39 FA Cup ties in normal time, which is an extraordinary effort. It is looking like being two unless they pull a mammoth 50 minutes from out of the hat.

  99. 1704: 
    KICK-OFF- Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

    Back under way at Anfield.

  100. 1703: 

    Matt an angry Stoke fan on text via 81111: "Tony Pulis has got to go! Stoke have been awful since the 2010 cup final and we are getting worse. Pulis knows what's wrong but is too stubborn to change!!!!!!! Very worried about relegation right now."

  101. 1703: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    After I say that, Chelsea put together a testing passage of 20-30 passes but they have no real penetration and Rio Ferdinand is able to deal with two crosses convincingly.

  102. 1701: 

    Stuart Greer: "Sir Alex demanded a reaction to move on from CL exit and boy is he getting one."

    Ben Mitchell: "Chelsea have participated in a total of eight competitions this season, but are very likely to win nothing at the end of it."

    Jonny Kelly: "Newcastle aren't exactly helping my health this season."

  103. 1700: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Half an hour in and it's easy street for Manchester United. They are being given so much time and space by Chelsea. The visitors then do mount some sort of break but Demba Ba needlessly shoots from 30 yards and David De Gea can throw his hat on it.

  104. 1659: 
    Newcastle 2-1 Stoke

    That win has lifted Newcastle to level on points with Stoke - in fact a whole clutch of teams are gathered on 33 points. That's the mid-table pocket right there. Tony Pulis will be fuming at that defending from Marc Wilson though. How costly an error could that be?

  105. 1658:  
    Robbie Savage, former Wales midfielder at Old Trafford:Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "Manchester United are dominating Chelsea here. They are playing at a higher pace, with some lovely one-twos between Wayne Rooney and Shinji Kagawa.

    "This could be all over by half-time."

    Listen to commentary of Manchester United v Chelsea on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  106. 1657: 

    Statisticians Opta: "3 - Newcastle United have come from behind to win their last three Premier League home games. Habit."

  107. 1655: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    And there is nearly is! Patrice Evra crosses low from the left, Wayne Rooney's shot is parried by Petr Cech and the Czech keeper then has to make a really superb stop to get back up and claw out David Luiz's header. The Chelsea man miscued his clearance horribly and was close to an own goal.

  108. 1654: 
    CLOSE!- Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Nani whips in a fine low cross from the right and Javier Hernandez is once again too sharp for the Chelsea back line, but this time he can only steer his shot wide from close range. One more goal for United will end this.

  109. 1654: 

    Einfal: "Cisse! Hasn't exactly scored freely like last season, but some important goals."

  110. 1652: 
    Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea have not offered much today but they have two quick half-chances as we tick past the 20-minute mark. Victor Moses first has a shot blocked after Rafael gave the ball away, before Frank Lampard arrives in trademark fashion to shoot tamely at David De Gea.

  111. 1652: 
    FULL-TIME- Newcastle 2-1 Stoke

    MOTD's Steve Wilson at AnfieldHALF-TIME- Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

    "Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas will be pleased with the way his side have come back against Liverpool, who have been on song. Spurs have had to withstand some real pressure but it is 1-1."

  113. 1649: 
    GOAL- Newcastle 2-1 Stoke - Papiss Cisse (90+2 mins)

    Newcastle have won it! Sylvain Marveaux threads the ball through the eye of a needle on the edge of the box to find Papiss Cisse eight yards out, he keeps his cool to kill the ball before hammering into the net. He was onside - Marc Wilson stepped out horribly and got that all wrong for Stoke.

    Papiss Cisse
  114. 1648: 

    KevinOnEarth: "Get in & attack the ball, Glen Johnson, don't turn your back on it!"

    Adam Whittaker: "A miraculous recovery from Bale to cross for the equaliser."

    Adedayo Bamgbose: "Glen Johnson, you jump for the ball not back the player."

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez in the unusual position of hearing "You're Getting Sacked In the Morning" from both ends of Old Trafford. Chelsea could not have made a worse start - and how inevitable that Wayne Rooney would make an early impact."

  117. 1647:  
    Paul Jewell, former Wigan manager at Anfield:Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

    "Maybe that bang Steven Gerrard gave Gareth Bale woke him up a bit."

  118. 1645:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 2-0 Chelsea

    "The perfect start for Manchester United and Wayne Rooney - and a complete nightmare for Chelsea's interim manager Rafael Benitez. John Terry is, as they say, grim-faced on the bench."

    John Terry
  119. 1645: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham - Jan Vertonghen (45 mins)

    Gareth Bale is able to carry on after that knock and he finds Spurs a leveller. Nobody closes him down quickly enough, and the Welsh wizard puts a peach of a cross right on the head of Jan Vertonghen, and he buries it from close range at the Kop end.

  120. 1644: 

    Sam Muchai: "What a start for United. Making it look so easy."

  121. 1643: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham

    It all gets a bit niggly between Luis Suarez and Scott Parker, the referee has to step in but nothing is given. Gareth Bale then takes a whack in the back from Steven Gerrard as the compete for a header.

  122. 1641: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 2-0 Chelsea - Wayne Rooney (11 mins)

    Headlines written? Wayne Rooney may have put this one to bed already as he sends in a free-kick from wide on the left, it evades the head of Demba Ba and David Luiz and nestles into the far corner. He blows a kiss to the Stretford End.

    Wayne Rooney
  123. 1640: 

    Statisticians Opta: "6 - Javier Hernandez has now netted in six of his last seven games against Chelsea in all competitions. Sharp."

  124. 1639: 
    Man Utd 1-0 Chelsea

    It's not often you hear home and away fans digging out the same manager - but Rafael Benitez is getting flak from all sides. Nowhere to hide on the touchline.

    Rafael Benitez
  125. 1639: 

    Sophie Gayter: "Carrick has to be dark horse for player of the season. Consistently quality. What a pass!!"

    Tom Miszkowski: "Michael Carrick take a bow!"

    Ben Coleridge Cole: "I thought Benitez was supposed to be a defensive mastermind?! Cahill and Cech could have been on different teams then."

  126. 1639:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-0 Chelsea

    "Carrick's superb pass caught Cech in two minds and the poacher did the rest."

  127. 1638: 
    CLOSE!- Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham

    Great chance for Spurs to level as Gylfi Sigurdsson wonders into a pocket of space on the edge of the D, but he doesn't really catch the shot and scuffs it wide of the far corner.

  128. 1635: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 1-0 Chelsea - Javier Hernandez (5 mins)

    What a finish this is! Javier Hernandez always scores against Chelsea, and he's done it again here. Michael Carrick pings a beauty of a pass over the top, Petr Cech goes walkabout and is caught in no man's land as a result, and Hernandez floats a header perfectly over his head and right in to the top corner. Brilliant finish.

  129. 1635: 

    Mike Cowan: "Coutinho looking an absolute steal. Also if Bale beats Suarez to player of the year it'll be theft."

  130. 1634: 
    WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY- Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

    Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson on whether he had to pick up his team after losing to Real Madrid: "No, I don't think so. The FA Cup quarter-final is sufficient to get them wound up and roused for the opportunity. Nothing is ideal after Tuesday, Chelsea is an opposition that is enough incentive."

    On whether he has spoken to Wayne Rooney after he was dropped against Real Madrid: "It's been straight forward, I don't know why you asked that question, everyone has to get on with it."

  131. 1633: 
    Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham

    Liverpool continue to look good but here's a moment of danger as Gareth Bale shoots from 30 yards - but this time he cracks it well over the top.

  132. 1632: 

    It all went a bit goal mad there after I had a little moan didn't it? Always works...

  133. 1632: 
    CLOSE!- Man Utd 0-0 Chelsea

    Instant chance for Chelsea as Demba Ba drags a shot wide from 25 yards.

  134. 1631:  
    Paul Jewell, former Wigan manager at Anfield:Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham

    "Liverpool have played at a lot higher tempo. Tottenham look a bit leggy to me, maybe playing on Thursday in the Europa League did not help."

    And we are away in the final game of the day.

  136. 1630: 

    Matt in York on text via 81111: "People saying missing the Champions League will mean the death of Arsenal. Liverpool attracting a player of Coutinho's quality suggests otherwise. Impressive."

  137. 1629: 
    GOAL- Newcastle 1-1 Stoke - Yohan Cabaye (72 mins)

    You can keep your roast potatoes, even your Yorkshires - this is a gem of a goal! Necastle are level from that free-kick, as captain Yohan Cabaye so nonchalantly delivers the goods, he just takes one step and curls the ball over the wall and in off the underside of the crossbar. Perfection.

  138. 1628: 

    Rob Gibson: "Cheick Tiote is the most overrated player in the Premier League, he is absolute garbage"

  139. 1627: 
    CLOSE!- Newcastle 0-1 Stoke

    Chance for Newcastle to react as Yoan Gouffran intercepts a wayward backpass, he is challenged and Moussa Sissoko is fouled just as he was about to pull the trigger.

  140. 1626: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham

    Liverpool are purring here. Luis Suarez is again played into space on the right of the area but he shoots instead of passing and Hugo Lloris is able to turn it clear.

  141. 1626: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn
    Danny Shittu

    Millwall defender Danny Shittu: "We are just happy we didn't lose the game but it's a game we dominated and we are disappointed we didn't win. If that long-range shot went in I would have taken my shirt off and run into the changing room! I've been trying to do that all season, so I would have been happy with that."

  142. 1626: 

    Geoff Dragon: "That is a simply BEAUTIFUL goal, Coutinho's passes for Enrique were both sublime!"

    Craig Barnet: "Incredible finish from Suarez. Coutinho looks like a top player as well."

    Nik Stagno Navarra: "Wow, you can't defend that flowing passing and movement. Suarez all class."

  143. 1624:  
    Paul Jewell, former Wigan manager at Anfield:Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham

    "What a top drawer goal. Coutinho's skill was fantastic in the build-up and Suarez just poked it past Lloris.

    "It was a proper striker's finish."

    You can listen to commentary of Liverpool v Tottenham on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra.

  144. 1624: 
    GOAL- Newcastle 0-1 Stoke - Jon Walters (67 mins)

    Good on you Jonny Walters. He had a nightmare against Chelsea in January, scoring two own goals and missing a penalty, but he finds redemption here, driving into the bottom corner to give Stoke the lead.

  145. 1623: 
    PENALTY TO STOKE- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Cheick Tiote has a moment of madness, skiiing into Jon Walters - who is taking the spot kick...

  146. 1621: 
    GOAL- Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham - Luis Suarez (21 mins)

    A wonderful, wonderful goal from Liverpool ends the drought in style. Philippe Coutinho starts it with a deft little flick inside, he then links up neatly with Jose Enrique and the left-back feeds Luis Suarez perfectly. The striker has nothing to aim at but pokes the ball first-time into the near post as Hugo Lloris comes out. A goal worthy of missing a roast for...

    Luis Suarez
  147. 1619: 

    Shaun from London on text via 81111: "Two strong line-ups and a strong Chelsea bench. Would have preferred Ivanovic over Luiz. Very difficult game for Chelsea to win. Happy with a draw and replay."

  148. 1618: 

    We've still not had a goal yet in three games! Come on lads, I thought Thursday was dull until Spurs came to the rescue. People are getting into grief from their family for this. I've not seen anything worth missing a Sunday roast with the Rostances for yet...

  149. 1615: 
    Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    He really has, has Mousa Dembele. He commits men so often. There could be a problem further back for Spurs though as Michael Dawson appears to be limping.

  150. 1615: 

    MPW7: "Dembele has the ability to drift past a player & make it look so easy..."

  151. 1613:  
    Paul Jewell, former Wigan manager at Anfield:Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

  153. 1613: 

    Joshua Darling: "Scott Parker's having a mare so far, every time he gets the ball he's dispossessed or forced back, good tactics by Liverpool."

    Kristof: "Stoke's defence is at a complete loss without Robert Huth."

    Chris Hall: "I think Spurs keeper Lloris has had the ball more in this opening five minutes than Brad Friedel had in the whole first half against Inter."

  154. 1612: 
    CLOSE!- Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    ...which Gareth Bale takes, it's his first real touch and he hits an arrow-straight drive form 30 yards which Brad Jones has a moment with, misreading the flight and not convincingly turning away for a corner. Hearts in mouth moment there.

  155. 1610: 

    Two great driving runs from midfield as first Newcastle number seven Moussa Sissoko ambles through the Stoke team to set up a chance, and then Mousa Dembele cuts right through Liverpool in similar style. Free-kick to Spurs...

  156. 1607: 
    CLOSE!- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic gets a bit lucky here as he comes flying out of his goal to shut down Moussa Sissoko, Sissoko lifts the ball over him but wide into the side-netting. Not sure Begovic made the right decision there, but Newcastle are making all the early running.

  157. 1606: 
    Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    Daniel Sturridge is almost in again as he latches on to a pass from Philippe Coutinho, but his touch is heavy as Hugo Lloris comes out and the chance goes begging. Liverpool have made a fine start.

  158. 1605: 
    Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    Daniel Sturridge can really fly and he exposes the Spurs defence in style after Benoit Assou-Ekoto runs in to trouble. Sturridge picks up the pieces and drives at the back four but his shot is wayward in the end, straight over the top.

  159. 1604: 
    Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    Gareth Bale has scored in his last five Premier League matches, equalling the record for a Spurs player, previously achieved by Teddy Sheringham, Robbie Keane (twice) and Rafael van der Vaart. Bale is again through the middle today, just behind Jermain Defoe, with the improving Gylfi Sigurdsson on the left.

  160. 1602: 
    KICK-OFF- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    And the second half is up and running in Newcastle.

  161. 1601: 
    Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    It's not all about Gareth Bale today though - Luis Suarez is in decent touch and the Uruguayan is almost in inside the first minute as he collects Danny Sturridge's pass, but Kyle Walker eats up the turf to shut him out.

  162. 1600: 
    KICK-OFF- Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

    Spurs get the ball rolling at Anfield.

  163. 1556: 
    Liverpool v Tottenham (1600 GMT)

    Gareth Bale is used to having a camera stuck right in his face these days, and he is followed all the way down the Anfield tunnel as the sides emerge. Can Liverpool shut him out?

    Gareth Bale
  164. 1554: 

    There will be a quick turnaround for Millwall and Blackburn, with the two sides meeting this coming Wednesday in the replay at Ewood Park.

  165. 1554:  
    Mark Bright, former Sheffield Wednesday striker at The Den:Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    "Both teams hit the woodwork, but the one clear cut chance was for Millwall's Rob Hulse. Somehow, he just helped it over the bar instead of into the net.

    "You looked at the two teams in league, they are identical. What we found out today is that Blackburn have some backbone."

  168. 1549: 
    HANDBAGS- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    It's all kicked off here. Grant Hanley thinks Andy Keogh has dived in the area and the two square up - both are booked as we enter stoppage-time.

    Sam_Burrell: "Robin van Persie on the bench today, Man United must be selling him in the summer then..."

  171. 1547:  
    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd v Chelsea (1630 GMT)

    "Manchester United must set aside the disappointment of their contentious Champions League exit against Real Madrid as they face Chelsea in today's FA Cup quarter-final. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson writes in his match notes: "A league and cup double is now our target and if we can pull that off it won't be such a bad season."

    "Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has a frosty relationship with Ferguson - but there may be just the slightest thaw in his relationship with his own supporters if he can somehow pull off a victory against his old adversary today."

    There's no John Terry or Fernando Torres in the Chelsea line-up as Demba Ba starts up front. Wayne Rooney partners Javier Hernandez in attack, as Robin van Persie is left on the bench.

  175. 1543: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Statisticians Opta: "0 - On no previous occasion this season have Blackburn Rovers failed to register a shot on target in a single match. Blank?"

  176. 1542: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Danny Shittu again! Don't let the big man shoot! He cannons in from slightly closer this time, 25 yards, and it has Jake Kean worried enough to scramble it clear. Into the last six minutes...

  177. 1541: 
    CLOSE!- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    All the best from Newcastle has come through captain Yohan Cabaye today, and the Frenchman goes close again, skidding a low drive wide with the aid of a deflection.

  178. 1540: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Man Utd v Chelsea (1630 GMT)

    Wayne Rooney starts for Manchester United.

    Wayne Rooney
  179. 1539:

    Chris Palmer: "About five years ago not having Reina in your team would be a blow. Now, it is nearly a blessing."

    Graham Wood: "Newcastle lacking creativity today. Match fit or not, this game needs Hatem Ben Arfa."

  180. 1537: 
    CLOSE!- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Real chance for Newcastle as Yohan Cabaye splits the Stoke defence with a great ball over the top, Yoan Gouffran is in but the ball takes a bad bounce for him, coming up high and the Frenchman ends up firing high over the bar. Good chance.

  181. 1536: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Blackburn force a flurry of late corners as they look for the winner, and they go close as Josh King flicks a header against the post!

    Scott Dann then picks a fight with Danny Shittu and is probably quite glad when the referee intervenes...

  182. 1534: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Into the last 15 minutes at the Den. This has been like a relegation six-pointer, not a Cup quarter-final...

  183. 1533: 

    Still two more games to come of course. Hopefully we can find at least one goal between them...

  184. 1532: 

    James Curley: "Strong starting XI for Liverpool, not sure about the bench though, not much strength there!"

    Matt Morgan: "Both first teams look good today. Think Liverpool edge the bench though..."

    Red Chump: "Not bothered by Reina's absence. Jones has proved in the past to be a reliable candidate to be called upon in his absence."

  185. 1529: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke want a spot-kick here as Ryan Shotton is booted up the backside by Davide Santon as he ran past him - there's nothing given at all and Shotton cannot believe it. It looked a foul to me - but it looked outside the box as well. Half an hour gone at St James' Park.

  186. 1528: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    We are approaching the final 20 minutes at the Den, where the home side are now well on top. Dany N'Guessan is the latest to threaten as he skims a header wide from a right-wing cross.

  187. 1527:

  196. 1517: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Oh my word! Danny Shittu winds up to smack a shot from just inside the Blackburn half, the stadium as one urge him to rethink, but the unit smacks a shot from around 40 yards which is screaming into the top corner until Jake Kean tips it over! That was sensational.

  197. 1516: 
    CLOSE!- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Lovely stuff from Newcastle as they pop it around on the edge of the box, but skipper Yohan Cabaye sees his lovely floated effort skim just wide. Better from the hosts.

  198. 1515: 
    Liverpool v Tottenham (1600 GMT)

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is planning to use attack as the best form of defence against Tottenham and their star player Gareth Bale. Rodgers says: "We will always prepare but they have other good players as well and we will analyse the strengths and weaknesses of the team - but for us the main concern is ourselves and bringing our own game into it."

    Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas knows what it would mean if his side could beat Liverpool. He says: "I think it will probably end their hopes [of Champions League qualification] if we win, but you never know."

  199. 1515: 
    Liverpool v Tottenham (1600 GMT)

    Liverpool make two changes from the win over Wigan last time out. Keeper Brad Jones and striker Daniel Sturridge replace Pepe Reina and Joe Allen.

    Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon is out after picking up a hamstring injury in the Europa League win over Inter Milan on Thursday. He is replaced by Jake Livermore as part of three changes from that game which also see keeper Hugo Lloris and centre-back Michael Dawson coming in for Brad Friedel and William Gallas.

  200. 1513: 
    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    One of the new Newcastle boys has a dig, as Moussa Sissoko cracks a drive over the top from 25 yards after a decent counter-attack. The midfielder has been in decent scoring touch since he arrived.

    Suhas AR: "No Reina for Liverpool, massive blow."

  202. 1511: 
    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke cause a bit of chaos from a corner, with Newcastle goalkeeper Rob Elliot not looking the most assured as he punches a clearance away, but it ends harmlessly enough as Ryan Shotton helps the ball back in and Elliot claims.

    "These days Tottenham usually take on Liverpool with confidence. Spurs have won seven and lost only of three of their last 12 meetings in league and cup between the two. The key protagonists in the latest encounter will almost certainly be Liverpool striker Luis Suarez and Spurs forward Gareth Bale. Both have 14 goals in their last 14 games and Suarez may be Bale's only serious rival for the title of Footballer of the Year."

  205. 1507: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Another injury problem for Rovers, as substitute Bradley Orr has to be replaced himself, with what looked like a hand injury. David Dunn is on in his place.

  206. 1506: 
    CLOSE!- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Chance for Jordan Rhodes! Blackburn would want this to fall to Rhodes, but the striker slashes a shot wildly over the top from the left-hand side of the box. He was always stretching to control that and it's not the finish you expect from the Scotland man. Let-off for the hosts.

  207. 1505: 
    Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    Mathieu Debuchy has a raid down the right for Newcastle but his low cross is well cleared by Stoke, The sun is out now after that early snow flurry.

  208. 1504: 
    KICK-OFF- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    We are back under way at the Den. Can anyone find the breakthrough? Or will we have a replay at Ewood to look forward to?

  209. 1503: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Liverpool v Tottenham (1600 GMT)

    Brad Jones starts in goal for Liverpool, while Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho all start.

  210. 1503: 

    Adeyinka A. Ayodele: "FA Cup magic is going to throw up All-Lancashire semi-final. North-west domination."

  211. 1502: 

    News from the Ryman Premier League and Wingate and Finchley's match with fellow strugglers Thurrock has been abandoned after Wingate, who were trailing 1-0, had a fifth player sent off. Extraordinary!

  212. 1501: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Liverpool v Tottenham (1600 GMT)

    There's no Aaron Lennon in the Spurs side - the winger picked up an injury late on against Inter in midweek.

  213. 1500: 
    KICK-OFF- Newcastle 0-0 Stoke

    We are away at St James' Park...

  214. 1456: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Statisticians Opta: "1 - Millwall have failed to score in just one of their last 15 FA Cup matches at the New Den. Roar."

  215. 1453: 
    Newcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    We are close to kick-off in the north east then, where there appears to be a smattering of snow falling. There's no Hatem Ben Arfa in the squad for Newcastle today which is a shame as Alan Pardew said this week that "He's our Suarez - he's that different player, someone who in a tight game can create something out of nothing."

    Is that Mark Knopfler's Stratocaster I can hear? Yes it is. Game time...

  216. 1452: 

    Exodus Geohaghon had his own live text during that Liverpool cup tie...

  217. 1451: 
    Exodus Geohaghon

    Christopher Kan: "How about Exodus Geohaghon of Mansfield Town? Saw him in the FA Cup versus Liverpool - mammoth! Surely he gets in on name too!"

    Andy Johnson: "Ron 'the colossus' Yeats lived up to his reputation and nickname."

    Patrick Sarsfield: "John Parkin, massive unit."

  218. 1450:  
    Mark Bright, former Sheffield Wednesday striker at The Den:Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    "I think it has been Millwall's half. They have pushed Blackburn back, but the visitors have been resolute and dug in well.

    "You have to compete at The Den."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Blackburn on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra now.

  219. 1450: 
    HALF-TIME- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Alistair Magowan reports: "Not loads to shout about but Millwall are definitely posing more of an aerial threat, with Andy Keogh going closest to scoring. Plenty to think about for Blackburn boss Michael Appleton. Elsewhere, I'm not too sure what David Bentley's beef is. He could easily get a grip of this game if he wanted to. Instead he has looked like causing a ruck, at most."

  220. 1449: 

    Over at Twickenham, where England's rugby union players are about to take on Italy, former Chelsea boss Gianluca Vialli has just told BBC Sport he's tipping Manchester United to beat Chelsea this afternoon. "Sorry!" he says with a sheepish grin. And asked whether he fancies becoming the next man in the Stamford Bridge hotseat, the Italian jokes: "I'm available - do you want my telephone number?"

  221. 1441: 

    It's finished goalless at the Edinburgh derby, but we have another 'goalline technology' row as Hibs striker Leigh Griffiths saw a free kick hit the crossbar and come down "at least two feet" over the line. One to watch...

  222. 1441: 
    HITS THE WOODWORK- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Oh so close! Millwall almost take the lead as Andy Keogh flies into a diving header at the back post but sees his effort cannon back into play of the base of the post. Very unlucky.

    Danny Shittu then goes on a rampage up the pitch and almost runs over a Blackburn defender. Like Jonah Lomu v Rory Underwood...

  223. 1439: 
    Jan Koller

    Ross Edgar: "Jan Koller looked like he had gate crashed a primary school game. Massive unit."

    Dan Fry: "Nobody compares to the legendary William "Fatty" Foulkes! 24 stone at his peak."

    Phil Boyle: "Remember Wayne 'The Chief' Allison - you don't get a nickname like that if you're not a boss of a unit."

  224. 1438: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Twang! There goes Adam Henley's hamstring as Bradley Orr comes on to replace him in the Blackburn defence. Into the last 10 minutes of the half now.

  225. 1436:  
    Mark Bright, former Sheffield Wednesday striker at The Den:Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    "Blackburn goalkeeper Jake Kean has not shown any confidence so far. He is punching everything, and not very well. If the ball is low enough, he should be catching them."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Blackburn on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra now.

  226. 1434: 

    Statisticians Opta: "47% - Blackburn Rovers' passing accuracy is currently 47.3% against Millwall in the FA Cup. Millwall have only managed 56.0%. Nerves?"

  227. 1434: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    The Lions definitely on top now as we go past the half-hour mark. This game desperately needs some quality though.

  228. 1430: 
    DISALLOWED GOAL- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Millwall have the ball in the net - but the whistle has already gone. Blackburn keeper Jake Kean flaps at a corner and Rob Hulse heads home - but on second viewing Kean was fouled by Dany N'Guessan. Correct call.

  229. 1429: 

    We have found a goalkeeper for the Big Unit XI! Wow. He makes the ball look like a golf ball.

  230. 1428: 
    Kristof Van Hout

    Will Michell: "Biggest unit in football has got to be Kristof Van Hout - 24 year 'keeper from Genk - 6ft 10" and weighs 111kg!"

    Jamie Martin: "Mark Viduka. Had to go round him to get the ball, which was impossible..."

    Alex Harker: "Biggest unit in football? Darren Moore, no contest."

  231. 1426: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Blackburn win a free-kick 25 yards from goal, David Bentley and Morten Gamst Pedersen stand over it but Bentley's shot is poor, straight into the wall. Not the best 25 minutes of football this season...

  232. 1425: 
    Adebayo Akinfenwa

    Lewis in Carmarthen on text via 81111: "Just been watching Godzilla and I'm sure Adebayo Akinfenwa could easily batter him. Unit."

    John in Abingdon on text via 81111: "Surely Akinfenwa has got to be the biggest unit - wouldn't look out of place in pro wrestling!"

    Jack Boyes on text via 81111: "If we're talking big units, Akinfenwa makes Shittu look like Theo Walcott!"

  233. 1424: 
    CLOSE!- Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Millwall have turned it up a gear at the Den, they have some pressure for a few minutes which ends with Liam Trotter curling wide from 25 yards. Deflected? Should have been a corner I think...

  234. 1423: 
    LINE-UPS- Newcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    Newcastle: Elliot, Debuchy, Steven Taylor, Yanga-Mbiwa, Santon, Cabaye, Tiote, Gutierrez, Sissoko, Gouffran, Cisse. Subs: Harper, Anita, Perch, Haidara, Marveaux, Obertan, Campbell.

    Stoke: Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Wilkinson, Shotton, Whelan, Nzonzi, Walters, Jerome, Crouch. Subs: Sorensen, Jones, Owen, Adam, Whitehead, Kightly, Shea.

    Referee: Andre Marriner (W Midlands)

  235. 1422: 

    Aaron Bower: "The beast that is Adebayo Akinfenwa takes the biscuit for biggest unit in football, surely? Absolute colossus."

    Saf_AFC: "One of the biggest units has to be Vidic, he is a rock!"

    Gareth Bade: "Biggest unit in football has to be George Elokobi, he's an absolute machine."

    George Elokobi
  236. 1417: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Blackburn defender Scott Dann is in the wars as he catches a stray arm from Millwall striker Rob Hulse. There's blood spilled there and he has to have some running repairs.

  237. 1415: 
    Newcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    Alan Pardew names a much changed Newcastle side from that which started at Anzhi Makhachkala - the only survivors are Rob Elliot, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Yohan Cabaye and Moussa Sissoko. It's the same team that started at Swansea City last weekend, with the creative trio of Jonas Gutierrez, Sissoko and Yoan Gouffran supporting lone striker Papiss Cisse.

    There's one alteration to the Stoke side beaten at home by West Ham as Michael Kightly is replaced by Geoff Cameron. That's likely to see Ryan Shotton move into midfield and Cameron to full-back.

  238. 1412:  
    Mark Bright, former Sheffield Wednesday striker at The Den:Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    "Decent start here from Millwall. As the home team, you have to push your opponents back and they are doing that well."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Blackburn on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra now.

  239. 1411: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Leon Best puts himself forward for the world's strongest man as he shrugs Danny Shittu off the ball. A foul is given instead of a medal though.

    The office debate is currently: Who are the biggest units in football? Who do we reckon?

  240. 1410: 

    Jonathan Morgan: "I'd be surprised if Jordan Rhodes didn't score today for Blackburn."

  241. 1408: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    There's not been much else to report from the Den where it's been a typically scrappy start. There's a decent crowd in, and this is a huge chance for both sides to book a date at Wembley. Millwall waste their first attack as Dany N'Guessan overhits his cross harmlessly out of play.

  242. 1407:  
    Mark Bright, former Sheffield Wednesday striker at The Den:Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    "Jordan Rhodes just took a bit too long on the ball there. What a chance, he should not have allowed Danny Shittu to get back and tackle him."

    Marc Wilson is again at centre-half for Stoke, who have former Magpies striker Michael Owen on the bench.

  244. 1405: 
    Newcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    With today's visit of Stoke followed by their Europa League second leg against Anzhi Makhachkala and a trip to Wigan, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew says: "It's a massive week for us. Staying in the Premier League and going into the last eight of Europe would be a little feather in our cap."

    Stoke have won only one of their last nine games and manager Tony Pulis admits: "The lads are desperate to win a game, I'm desperate to win a game, and that's what we'll try to do."

  245. 1404: 
    Millwall 0-0 Blackburn

    Blackburn knock the ball over the top for Jordan Rhodes to chase, you would back him to beat Danny Shittu for pace but the big man snakes out a leg to recover well and hook the ball away. Shittu is massive.

  246. 1403: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Newcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    Newcastle make seven changes from the side which drew in Russia on Thursday afternoon. Papiss Cisse is back up front.

    And we are away...

  248. 1400:

  249. 1400: 
    Millwall v Blackburn (1400 GMT)

    Millwall manager Kenny Jackett on ESPN: "We have struggled at home in recent weeks, and we need to do the basics well and compete, we understand what we have to do today.

    "The crowd are great here, but it is player-led; if you put on a good performance, the supporters will drive us on to win.

    "Wembley is a big carrot for both teams. We will worry about that later, Blackburn are very talented and packed full of Premier League experience."

  250. 1359: 
    Millwall v Blackburn (1400 GMT)

    Blackburn manager Michael Appleton on ESPN: "Both sides are not on a good run in the league. It is a nice distraction to have today's game.

    "It is a big boost to have Leon Best back. It gave everyone a great lift to see him back, we will see if he can play 90 minutes."

  251. 1359: 
    Christian Benteke

    Camron a delighted Villa fan on text: "The best compliment I gave my mum today was that I love her as much as I love Christian Benteke."

    Nick in Oxford: "Leon Best and David Bentley to score in a 2-0 victory."

  252. 1355:

    There is live coverage from The Den on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra, with commentary from Ali Bruce-Ball and summarising from ex-Sheffield Wednesday striker Mark Bright.

    You can listen online.

  254. 1348: 

    Statisticians Opta: "0 - Blackburn Rovers are one of only two teams (with Man City) yet to concede a goal in the FA Cup proper this season. Wall."

  255. 1346: 

    Nuno Gomes on the bench for Blackburn - extraordinary. He was the man to watch at many a tournament in the 2000s. Remember his goal against France at Euro 2000? Cracking.

    Nuno Gomes
  256. 1346: 

    Ricky Grayston: "Nuno Gomes to replace Leon Best on the hour mark and score a late winner, heard it here first!"

  257. 1338: 

    Wigan shocked everyone yesterday with the manner of their 3-0 win at Everton, and chairman Dave Whelan believes that his manager Roberto Martinez will soon be at one of the big clubs.

    He told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: "We have known each other and been together a long time. Hopefully that will continue.

    "I will lose him, I don't think there is any question about that. He is a top-class manager and he will get one of the top clubs in Europe.

    "The big clubs in Europe, when they want a manager, Roberto is obviously the man. He is stone-cold brilliant as a manager."

    Bobby 'Stone Cold' Martinez...

  258. 1337: 

    Former World Superbike champion Carl Fogarty: "Ok Rovers c'mon let's have win...Could do with a day out at Wembley!!! #mysticfogs thinking a draw though. 1-1"

  259. 1334:  
    MOTD's Steve Bower at St James' ParkNewcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    "Newcastle's consistency of last season has been a far cry from the disruption of this one, but the impact of new faces is there for all to see - they've won three of their last five league games and are looking for a third consecutive home victory. How Stoke could do with a lift. Defeat by West Ham was their sixth in the last eight games and left them with just one win from their last nine."

  260. 1334: 

    Jon S in East Grinstead: "To ensure no doubts, mums everywhere, we love you! Thanks for being so understanding about the football that is on this afternoon."

  261. 1330: 

    Our first FA Cup tie of the afternoon is just half an hour away from kick-off then, and we then head to Newcastle for their Premier League game with Stoke. The Potters have hit a rough patch, winning just twice in their last 10 league games.

  262. 1329: 
    Millwall v Blackburn (1400 GMT)

    Alistair Magowan reports: "Millwall make six changes to the team which lost to Wolves in midweek. Rob Hulse starts after a stomach problem, with Andy Keogh joining him up front. Striker Leon Best makes his first start of the season for Blackburn after injury. He is one of three alterations to Michael Appleton's side, as David Bentley and Josh King are also included."

    Millwall reached the FA Cup final just nine years ago, while Blackburn are hoping to reach the semi-finals for the 19th time in their history, the third in nine seasons and first since 2007.

    Former Newcastle striker Michael Owen ahead of Stoke's visit to St James' Park:Newcastle v Stoke (1500 GMT)

    "Just signed autographs for about 40 Newcastle fans outside our hotel. Not one single bad word spoken towards me.

  267. 1317:  
    BBC Radio 5 liveMillwall v Blackburn (1400 GMT)

    Millwall chief executive Andy Ambler on BBC Radio 5 live: "To be in the FA Cup quarter-final is a great achievement, but we want to go one stage further. The prize of getting to Wembley is massive and will be a massive boost to our season.

    "In the league, we have been stuck on 40-odd points for what seems like forever. Today is an opportunity for the players to get their form back."

  268. 1317: 

    Which Champo team are going to be gracing Wembley next month then? Which horse are you backing?

    Can Spurs stop Suarez? Will Liverpool blunt Bale? Is Tony Pulis still the man for Stoke? Will Wayne Rooney still be at Old Trafford for the foreseeable?

    There's a big game on north of the border this afternoon, as Hibernian host Hearts in the Edinburgh derby.

    A tasty affair for sure, and you can follow all the live action in a Scottish live text commentary.

  270. 1311: 
    Millwall v Blackburn (1400 GMT)

    Alistair Magowan reports: "Just a point separates these two sides in the lower reaches of the Championship and since their fifth-round triumphs, they have won one in nine games between them. That will be forgotten as managers Kenny Jackett and Michael Appleton aim to lead their sides to Wembley, becoming the only Championship side to reach the semi-finals. Both teams have already knocked out Premier League opposition in the competition, and although he led his team to victory over Arsenal in the previous round, Blackburn boss Appleton believes it will be an 'intimidating' atmosphere at The Den."

  271. 1311: 

    Our two FA Cup quarter-finals bookend the day, as we find out who will be in the hat for the last four.

    Wigan and Manchester City are already there, and we are guaranteed one Championship side from our first game of the day...

  272. 1308: 
    BREAKING TEAM NEWS- Millwall v Blackburn (1400 GMT)

    Liverpool v Tottenham (1600 GMT)

    Man Utd v Chelsea (1630 GMT)

  274. 1300: 

    Afternoon all.

    I trust you made the annual pilgrimage to the petrol station this morning to stock up on flowers and a Mother's Day card? Textbook.

    In that case we can crack on with the pressing concern of the day - the beautiful game.

    We're fighting on two fronts this afternoon - we should complete our FA Cup semi-final line-up and two of the Premier League's biggest hitters come face to face. Sorry mum - we're busy for the next few hours...
