Jose Mourinho reacts after Man United draw Chelsea in the FA Cup

Mourinho's side now have a chance to exact revenge in the FA Cup after Sunday's quarter-final draw pitted them against Antonio Conte's runaway Premier League leaders.

- Manchester United have progressed from each of their last 11 FA Cup ties against teams from a lower division.

"I think this is a good distraction and it can only be a positive".

Former Manchester United midfielder Quinton Fortune feels Marcus Rashford still has a lot more to add to his game and must remain patient for his opportunities to play as the centre forward at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are still without Wayne Rooney, who faces a race against time to be fit for the EFL Cup final at Wembley.

A crowd of 23,130 watched Rovers take on their Premier League opponents - nearly 5,000 more than their previous best attendance this season.

"More than good, they gave us a hard game and congratulations to them", Mourinho, who won the Cup 10 years ago with Chelsea, said. Oh yes, I can if Ashley Young plays this way.

United booked their place in the last eight by edging Championship strugglers Blackburn 2-1 yesterday morning (Singapore time) after Zlatan Ibrahimovic stepped off the bench to score the victor after goals from Danny Graham and Marcus Rashford.

"I've just arrived home after the game in Blackburn, where we have reached the FA Cup quarter-finals".

The score stayed at 1-1 into and past halftime, before Jose Mourinho brought on star men Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba on 62 minutes, 13 minutes later they combined for the victor. And I think Jose Mourinho's just been very careful with him. Emnes showed excellent strength and skill to keep possession under pressure, before slipping through Graham to rifle an outstanding effort across Romero and into the top corner. Resting David de Gea, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, United laboured - though Henrikh Mkhitaryan's pass to set up Marcus Rashford's equaliser was magical.

"Did they give us a good game?" For the first time, FA Cup replays at the sixth-round stage have been scrapped.
