Subs Not Used: Howard, Bardsley.


Kieran Richardson was the one making the headlines this morning, but the strange combination in midfield or Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand had United fans drooling after the match. It looked a miss-match, but don't you believe it. Fergie came up trumps on that one.

Richardson took just four minutes to make his mark, ramming home Louis Saha's cross from the edge of the area. Then the England international wrapped up a comfortable triumph with a clinically-taken header not long after the restart.

In between, Louis Saha continued his excellent scoring record in cup competitions this season, blasting home his eighth goal of the season, all but one of which have come in knockout combat.

In truth it was as easy a run-out as Sir Alex Ferguson could have hoped for, especially at a time when his squad is so weakened by the absence of star men.
