Man United beat Fulham in the FA Cup on Sunday and we'll bring you live reaction to the match in our dedicated blog.

Fulham's Harrison Reed vies with Manchester United's Lisandro Martinez

Manchester United take on Fulham at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday afternoon.

United progressed to the quarter-finals of the Europa League in midweek after defeating Real Betis 1-0 away from home. The Reds comfortably won the tie 5-1 on aggregate and Marcus Rashford scored the only goal in the second leg.

Erik ten Hag's side are now heavy favourites to win that European trophy and the FA Cup is another avenue for silverware this season. Fulham stand in the way of reaching the semi-final of that competition and they sit in midtable in the Premier League.

After securing promotion back to the top flight, Fulham have enjoyed a successful campaign, but they've lost both of their last two matches against Brentford and Arsenal, conceding three goals against each side.

Regarding the team news, Anthony Martial remains unavailable but Scott McTominay returns.

United player ratings vs Fulham as Martinez and De Gea good

David de Gea

Made a routine save from Issa Diop, had to be more agile to tip over Antonee Robinson's curler and made a fine save from Willian. 8

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Played as though blindfolded in the final third before Antony came on and he was perked up by their unlikely alliance. 6

Harry Maguire

Kept his place in the absence of the injured Raphael Varane and regressed. Booked for clumsily hauling down Aleksandar Mitrovic. 5

Fulham imploded

You rarely see an implosion like that in professional football. Willian and Mitrovic sent off, Marco Silva sent off, a penalty and a goal, all in the space of just a few minutes. Incredible.

Fulham still in control

United’s makeshift midfield lasted less than an hour then, and they’ve now resorted to another one. Fulham are still in control and if they keep their cool defensively will fancy their chances of seeing this one out. United need a moment of magic from somewhere.

Rashford through the middle

Sancho is on the left, Rashfod is through the middle and Antony is on the right. Weghorst has dropped into attacking midfield and a response is needed to that goal.

That makes it interesting

Changes seemed inevitable at the break but Ten Hag kept faith in the players who disappointed in the first half. United have been the worse side and deserve to be trailing.

No changes made

Perhaps surprisingly, there we no changes made at half-time.
