Chelsea comes from behind to draw with Man Utd in FA Cup

DEFENDING champions Chelsea inflicted more misery on Manchester United yesterday morning, the Londoners coming from 2-0 down to salvage a 2-2 draw in their FA Cup quarter-final at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils, knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid last Tuesday, led 2-0 inside 11 minutes after goals to Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney.

However, Eden Hazard gave Chelsea a lifeline in the 59th minute before Ramires equalised.

No date has yet been set for the replay as Chelsea has a Europa League last-16 second leg to play against Steaua Bucharest this week.

Manchester City will play the winner of the replay in the semi-finals at Wembley next month.

A replay will also be needed to decide who plays Wigan in the other semi after Millwall and Blackburn drew 0-0.

In Premier League action, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard ended third-placed Spurs' 12-match unbeaten run after scoring the winner from the penalty spot in the 3-2 victory at Anfield.

Newcastle left it late to beat Stoke after Papiss Demba Cisse scored an injury-time winner in the 2-1 win.
