FT: Manchester United 3-1 Everton
In the end, the quality came through for Manchester United, who only had to push a little harder to get the Everton wall to break. ​​​​​​​The defeat means they are through to the next round, but it also puts Frank Lampard's future in serious doubt, as his side are spiralling downwards. 
Conor Coady went from hero to villain with an unlucky own goal but it was great work from Rashford, who put in an MVP performance on the night. The Garnacho penalty was harsh on Everton, but on the balance of how things went over the 90, they probably didn't deserve to go through.
Rashford sends Pickford the wrong way and that's the result done and dusted!
Ten Hag claps politely. 
GOOOOOOALLL
MARCUS RASHFORD SEALS IT!
3-1!
PENALTY!
GARNACHO FOULED!
​​​​​​​Hmm… I'm not sure about that one. It looked very weak.
Oh! Lovely!
Bruno plucks the ball from the sky, spins on a sixpence and hits the bouncing ball towards goal. Wide.
Godfrey makes a potentially match-saving tackle to stop Rashford from breaking down the left. A fantastic challenge.
Godfrey picks the ball out of the air beautifully from a corner, but his cross bounces out for a goal kick.
SIX added minutes.
Fred tries to channel his inner Paul Scholes from the corner, but hits the volley weaker than a mouse's kiss.
RASHFORD!
JUST OVER THE BAR!
Pickford actually got a touch. Corner!
Onana booked for the tackle. 
Lisandro wins a free kick high up the pitch after Onana needlessly jumps into a challenge. Shooting range.
Rashford wins a corner after breaking away down the left. Coady was not happy with the lax defending from Everton.
Lisandro does excellently well to block the ball as it rolls out of play, Godfrey was all over his back. 
Goal kick. And Manchester United are in no rush to take it. 
Everton now, thanks to Manchester United's defensive changes, have begun to take the initiative and are pushing the hosts further back.
Eriksen and Antony OFF​
Maguire and McTominay ON
Dominic Calvert-Lewin was sniffing around as the ball came flying in from the left. Lisandro cleared it away. 
McNeil and Gordon ON
Mykolenko and Coleman OFF
Into the last ten minutes
Antony spins away from two challenges like a small dog but Fred fails to control the ball with his first touch and Everton mount a counter attack
It's very playground football now, as both teams revert to type and continue to lose ball after ball, causing the crowd to stir…
Gana Gueye tries a near-impossible effort from 35 yards after finding some space in the middle of the pitch.
Malacia OFF
World Cup winner Martínez ON
Back underway. 
Gray was just offside on the counter. It all came from a long ball that caught Manchester United out.
OFFISDE!
NO GOAL!
Gray was just a few inches too far forward on the counter…
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLL
DOMINIC CALVERT LEWIN
2-2!!!
Garnacho gets his first touch, slips over, and lets the ball run out of play. Things can only go upwards from there. 
Casemiro and Martial OFF
Fred and Garnacho ON
Twenty minutes to go, and Manchester United look happy to see the rets of the game out by keeping the ball. Everton remain in their deep shape as the home side pass calmly around the back.
Maupay OFF
Calvert-Lewin ON
Doucoure booked for a challenge on Rashford. It looked like a dive to me…
PICKFORD HUGE SAVE!
​​​​​​​BRUNO TRIED AN OUTRAGEOUS SHOT FROM DISTANCE THAT DIPPED AND CURVED BUT PICKFORD GOT A STRONG HAND TO THE BALL!
EVERTON!
HUGE CHANCE!
And they're still attacking…
Coleman's cross hit De Gea's foot and Mykolenko almost put the rebound in, but it was well blocked. 
Onana does well to flick the ball over Eriksen in his own half after Pickford sent him a hospital pass out from the back. Everton are under pressure by Manchester United in all areas.
Godfrey booked for a very late challenge on Rashford. He's maybe even slightly lucky that it was a yellow, more orange for me. 
The dominance-meter has swung right round to the red shirts now, and the fans have begun to sing "you're getting sacked in the morning" to Frank Lampard, who I assume is not impressed by neither the vocals nor the lyrics.
Everton look at sixes and sevens right now, they can't hold onto the ball and Manchester United are taking full advantage of the spaces they're leaving out wide.
Antony finds space on the right, cuts inside, and spins a low shot into Pickford's gloves.
Rashford, on the left, turned one way then the other, turning Séamus Coleman inside out, before firing a low cross across the goal-line. 
Coady was the unlucky defender in the way and he deflected the ball past Pickford. 
​​​​​​

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLL
CONOR COADY OWN GOAL
We're back underway…
Iwobi OFF
Doucoure ON
​​​​​​
He's being stretchered off, in tears. 
Iwobi is still down, and he looks fairly distraught, holding his shirt over his face. The rest of the Everton team have crowded round him in support. 
It looks like an ankle issue. 
Iwobi down. Medical staff are straight on the pitch.
Rashford plays a sublime pass over the top for Martial but the Frenchman can't make anything of the attack.
And we're off again!
45 minutes to go!
The players are back in the tunnel…

HT: Manchester United 1-1 Everton
Cor, blimey. What a mad game of football.
I don't remember watching a game with so many loose passes and simple errors, the biggest of them all David De Gea's, who inexplicably let the ball go through his legs from a simple cross, allowing Coady to poke home.​​​​​​​
For the most part, Manchester United have been on top, but the amount of errors we've seen from both sides means this could end up 7-7…
Martial wins a corner by booting the ball straight at the defender from close range. A classic trick. 
2 minutes added.
Rashford takes the ball from the left and drives inside before cutting back on his left foot, causing at least 2 players in blue to fall over.
Fortunately for them, the resulting shot is blocked easily by rest of the Everton defence.
Gray gets the final pass of a counter attack wrong and Old Trafford breathes a sigh of relief. 
It's incredible how vulnerable both teams look tonight…
Everton continue to sit deep and look happy to counter – it's worked so far…
ERIKSEN OFF THE BAR!!!
WHAT A HIT FROM THE RIGHT CORNER OF THE BOX!
It swerved and dipped just too late – Pickford had no chance!
Iwobi is a great player. I have no idea what position he is, but he tries things like he's in the school field. He has just almost played in Coleman with an outrageous pass from deep, one that many players would be too scared to try.
Varane with some frankly unexpected skill on the right side to slurp past Onana before putting a cross into the box. Cleared.
A couple of minutes now where we've gone back to what we had before: both teams unable to keep the ball. Everyone's either very excited of very nervous. Or both. 
Everton work the ball excellently in the middle third, pinging passes to each other before breaking wide with Mykolenko. His cross is delivered in too heavily however, and the attacks falls apart. 
SAVE FROM PICKFORD!
Manchester United counter after Gray's attack breaks down. Rashford picks up possession and drives diagonally from left to right, shooting from the edge of the box. It's a great save from Pickford, down to his right. 
CHANCE FOR ANTONY!
The ball was swung in by Bruno from the right and it dropped to the Brazilian, whose shot was blocked.
Bruno is still chatting away on the pitch, he's not happy. 
A booking for Bruno for talking. Because nobody talks about Bruno.
Bruno does well to spin and find space in the centre before laying off to Rashford. 
Bruno then fouled Onana: the game is just turning from chaotic in the football senseto chaotic in terms of discipline
Rashford gets angry with Séamus Coleman after the winger judged that he had been fouled by Godfrey. 
Six of one, half a dozen of the other for me, both players fouled each other. 
Casemiro fouls Gray as he tries to launch a counter attack. No booking, of course. 
Tarkowski tries to find a through pass to Mykolenko but, guess what?
It doesn't find a teammate and goes out. 
OK, I've just witnessed what must be 10 consecutive passes that have failed to reach a teammate, causing me to say quite loudly "this is crazy".
Everton have dropped right back into a defensive 4-4-2 shape as Manchester United probe and look for spaces to attack.
We are back underway…
(That's Casemiro, by the way)
Onana is down after a challenge from the Invisible Man 
Twenty minutes have gone here in what feels like 20 seconds…
What a ludicrous start to this FA Cup game. Manchester United have had more chances but a mistake (which has been the theme of the game) has let Everton back into it.
Martial shoots after the ball falls to him from ANOTHER Everton mistake and the shot is blocked by Tarkowski!
PICKFORD SAVES A HUGE CHANCE!
This game is bonkers. Manchester United break down the left and Pickford saves a hugely powerful low drive from Rashford!
Structure? Calm, controlled possession? What are these things? Long live football anarchy!
A CRAZY GOAL!
Varane fails to collect a cross and falls over, leaving Maupay to fire a low cross from the right.
The ball hits De Gea's legs and somehow goes through them, allowing Coady to tap in from close range!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL EEEEVERTOOOONN!!!!
​​​​​​
CHANCE FOR EVERTON!
Iwobi does well to switch the play from right to left and the ball works it way to Gray, who rifles a shot from the edge of the box down to De Gea's right.
It smacks off the post before hitting the back of De Gea's hand and out for a corner.
Iwobi's pass is cut out by Casemiro on halfway and he plays it forward. 
Rashford and Eriksen both try to find space for a shot but it bounces back to Casemiro himself, who slices a volley over the bar. All Manchester United so far. 
Everton try to build an attack, I think. But the ball just ends up going straight back to the home side within a few passes. Eek.
Antony wastes a good chance down the right as he performs his customary cutback, to the delight of the defenders.
Manchester United's high press is tearing Everton to pieces, they can't do anything other than play aimless long balls towards the strikers.
MARTIAL GOES CLOSE FROM THE EDGE OF THE BOX!
Another moment of self destruction from Everton, who lost the ball on the edge of their own box. 
Lampard, as you might expect, has the face of a child that received no Christmas presents. 
Martial gets the ball on halfway, turns and plays out left to Rashford. The winger runs down the pitch and plays a simple pass to the back post and Antony is there to tap in. Suicidal defending from Everton.
GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL
ANTONY
1-0!!
Everton lose the ball on the edge of the box which falls to Rashford. 
Godfrey steps in well, steals the ball, and Everton counter.
Rashford causes hearts to race with his first touches, forcing Onana to dive in and make a well-timed challenge.
Everton start by playing 2 long balls in 50 seconds, both of which look for Iwobi in behind.
The home side defend comfortably.
And we're off!
Everton (in all blue) kick us off from right to left!
Here are the starting lineups as the teams leave the tunnel:
ManchesterUnited: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Shaw, Malacia; Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes; Antony, Martial, Rashford
Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Coady, Tarkowski, Godfrey, Mykolenko; Onana, Iwobi, Gana, Davies; Gray, Maupay
Counting down…
The players are in the tunnel!
We're almost ready to go!
Ten minutes to go!
The players are finishing their warmups and are about to head into the changing room for the final team talk before kick-off!

He did really well as a centre half, he makes a good back four, there's good cooperation [with Malacia and De Gea].
​​​​​​​It's also a tactical choice but he has also constructed a good centre-back position with [Varane].
No Dominic Calvert-Lewin for Everton tonight, a big loss.
Here's the explanation as to why Dominic Calvert-Lewin isn't in the starting XI for Everton tonight.

Frank's feeling the pressure
The Toffees have not registered a win since their victory over Crystal Palace back in October last year, and manager Frank Lampard looks on the edge in terms of whether he will keep his job or not. 
The club survived last season thanks to some fantastic results at home that meant they crept away from Burnley and Leeds at the bottom end of the table. This year, however, they've failed to consolidate that 'fortress' feel at Goodison and the crowd are not a happy bunch right now. This game tonight could well be make or break for Lampard.

Reports suggest Manchester United want to sign Ajax forward Mohammed Kudus
Manchester United are casting out their net in search of another star to add to their squad. The latest link comes in the form of a World Cup star, who certainly put his name on a lot of clubs' Christmas shopping lists in Qatar.

Remembering Gianluca Vialli
As you will have heard, the world of football today has lost a great person. The sad news of Gianluca Vialli's death was confirmed earlier in the day.
Vialli, who enjoyed a stellar career with Sampdoria, Juventus and Chelsea and earned 59 caps for Italy, was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017. He was given the all-clear a year later only for the illness to return.
Check out the full piece, beautifully written by Paul, remembering Vialli's life.
Man Utd XI!
No rest for the big boys!
A full-strength starting XI from Eric ten Hag, who has Antony back in the side!
Team news!
Here's how Everton line up tonight!
It's a strong XI from Lampard who is looking to turn around the club's fortunes.

Manchester United bring in Butland on loan
Here is the full story…
Here's something to make Manchester United fans smile!
It's ex-Stoke goalkeeper, Jack Butland! 
He has signed on loan from Crystal Palace as back up to David De Gea.
Team news and recap: Everton
How do I put this nicely? Everton’s last game – how do I put this politely? – left room for improvement as they lost 1-4 to Brighton at Goodison Park.
Boss Frank Lampard is under pressure to show the board and fans some of the talent that got Derby County from 7th to 7th when he was manager of the then-Championship side.   ​​​​
The FA Cup is a welcome break from their league struggles, but they are taking on a Manchester United side that seem to have hit form at the right time. 
In terms of team news, Garner, Townsend and Patterson are injured; Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Anthony Gordon will both go through last-minute fitness checks to see if they can play. 
Team news and recap: Manchester United
Eric ten Hag’s Ronaldo-less Manchester United have won every game since they’ve come back from the World Cup, with the last match a 3-0 victory against lowly Bournemouth in the league.
Casemiro, Shaw and Rashford were on the scoresheet in that comfortable victory for The Reds.
In terms of team news for tonight, Martial is fit and could play, while Antony is a doubt
Van de Beek and Dalot are both injured and will not feature. 
Hello hello!
What have we got here!
It’s Manchester United vs Everton in the FA Cup Third Round!
A well-earned break from Premier League football gives us more football, this time in the shape of the oldest national football competition in the world.
And what a cracker of a game we have. Yum.
It's Joe here tonight to guide you through everything as it happens.
