FT: Manchester United 4 Fulham 1

Full Time. That's it. Manchester United beat Fulham 4-1 and progress comfortably to the fifth round.

90+2
Nani shoots wide.

90
There will be two minutes added time.

89
Dejagah sees his shot deflected for a corner.

88
Valencia so close to finding Hernandez with the outside of his boot but the cross is cut out.

87
Forceful play from Dejagah results in Rodallega having the chance to shoot but the substitute drags his effort wide.

84
Berbatov with the stepover but he cannot prevent the return ball drifting out of play. Frustrating evening for him.

83
Rooney thinks he has added a fifth to cap a flowing move but Hernandez is ruled to have eased his man out the way in the build-up.

82
Dejagah attempts a one-two with Rodallega but the latter fails to get his pass right and the chance is gone.

80
United stroking the ball around at an easy pace now. One and two-touch football.

77
Kagawa fires over after good work from Rooney.

76
Goal! Aaron Hughes heads in at the near post from Karagounis' corner.

74
Hernandez eyeing his hat-trick now but leans back on the shot and fires over the bar.

71
Double substitution for United as Giggs is replaced by Valencia, while Kagawa comes on for Anderson.

71
Dejagah on for Fulham.

Giggs releases Hernandez down the left and the striker cuts inside onto his stronger right foot and sees his shot deflect off Hughes and agonisingly past Schwarzer at the near post.

66
Goal! Javier Hernandez adds another!

66
Scholes with a trademark clumsy foul.

65
Sidwell with a lacklustre shot from distance that is blocked. Pedestrian pace to this game now.

62
Berbatov sees a volley blocked.

61
Rodallega on for Duff.

61
Scholes on for Carrick.

59
Duff shoots wide from the right edge of the box.

58
Giggs puts a dangerous low ball into the box but there is nobody on the end of it. This score could get unpleasant for Fulham if United wish to up the tempo.

56
More casual possession from Fulham fails to find the incisive pass. Ruiz delays on the ball and is robbed.

54
Karagounis nearly finds Berbatov over the top but the offside flag goes up.

Rooney finds Nani on the right and his first cross almost finds Hernandez. The ball comes back to Nani who knocks the ball back to Rooney and his cross ends up sitting nicely for Hernandez to blast the ball home from close range.

52
Goal! Javier Hernandez makes it three!

The England forward running through in the right channel, cut inside onto his supposedly weaker left foot and fired the ball powerfully past Schwarzer.

50
Goal! Wayne Rooney with a blistering finish after running onto Anderson's quality through-ball.

48
Fulham clear.

48
Giggs wins a corner.

47
Crafty touch from Rooney finds Hernandez who spreads the ball to Nani. His cross comes to Rooney but the forward sees his low shot blocked on the line by Hughes.

46
Fulham take the kick-off and attack with purpose but Berbatov sees his shot blocked. Then Nani fires wide at the other end. Lively start.

46
Karagounis on for Baird.

Half Time. That's the end of the first half. United lead 1-0 but it could be more. The home side have not been clinical enough and were perhaps unfortunate not to get a second penalty. But Fulham are still in this at the interval.

45
There will be one minute of added time.

44
Carrick and Anderson play quality passes in quick succession but Nani hits the first man with the cross. The crowd are getting a little frustrated with the Portugal international now.

43
Riise blocks crosses in quick succession from Nani and Rafael.

42
Nani lofts a ball into the box and it's a good lay-off with the volley from Giggs but Rooney is crowded out.

41
Misunderstanding between Nani and Rooney sees United give the ball away.

40
Good run from Anderson finds Nani on the right but the winger delays to the frustration of the crowd.

39
Giggs appears to be bundled over on the edge of the box as he prepares to shoot but the referee allows play to go on.

38
Nonchalant defending from United almost proves costly but Ruiz's shot is deflected skyward and comfortably claimed by De Gea.

37
Anderson with a driving run but Rooney cannot control the pass.

36
More good possession for Fulham comes to an end when Kacaniklic loses out to Rafael.

33
Good movement from Rafael and Nani nearly finds a way through but Fulham hold firm.

32
Riether with an ambitious shot from distance after wonderful skill from Berbatov but the ball goes just wide.

31
At the other end, United break and Rooney sees his close-range effort saved at the near post after a cross from the left.

31
Carrick gives the ball away in a dangerous position, allowing Ruiz to run through. It's two-on-two but the Fulham man cannto find a good pass and the chance is wasted.

29
Delightful control of a high ball from Giggs but his eventual cross from the left is blocked.

27
Not much zip to this game as Fulham are happy to pass the ball in front of United. Ruiz and Berbatov showing for the ball but nothing in behind means it has been fairly comfortable for the home defence.

25
Rooney with a long-range shot but Schwarzer saves comfortably low down.

24
Good work from Giggs and Rooney finds Nani in a little bit of space on the edge of the box but Schwarzer saves his shot. Then Nani is through and has a simple lay-off to Rooney but tries the shot and fires wide.

21
Then Rooney looks to be set to double the lead but Schwarzer saves the ball onto the crossbar and Fulham clear.

20
Another good penalty shout for United. Giggs chips the ball over Duff and Evra is about to run on to it but the Irishman cuts the pass out with an outstretched arm. Nothing given.

18
Rooney's corner from the left eludes everyone but Jones retrieves. Only to swing the ball out of play from the right himself.

17
Ruiz dropping off well to help link the play for the visitors. But Smalling does well to come across and snuff out the threat when Riether attempts the channel ball.

15
Lengthy spell of Fulham stroking it around ends when Riise loses the ball allowing Nani to run in on goal but Schwarzer smothers his near-post effort.

14
It comes to nothing but plenty of Fulham possession now with a slightly subdued atmosphere at Old Trafford.

12
Fulham getting into this now as Smalling puts the ball out for a corner.

11
Threatening pass from Ruiz but Kacaniklic cannot quite get there because De Gea is off his line well.

9
Fulham get forward again and Kacaniklic is in the box in the right channel but twists and turns out of play to the disgust of the waiting team-mates in the area.

7
Riether puts a superb ball across the face of goal after good work from Duff but Berbatov is not exactly striving to get there and it comes to nothing.

6
Hernandez breaks onto a pass from Anderson and United have a corner. The visitors are yet to get the ball up to Berbatov.

5
Rafael bursts forward and it's all United. Early goal looks like deflating Fulham already. Rooney enjoying plenty of space.

Schwarzer got a hand to the penalty diving to his right but cannot keep the ball out.

3
Goal! Ryan Giggs scores from the spot!

2
Handball against Hughes in the box. Penalty given.

1
Early gift for the home side. Fulham lose the ball in their own half and Rooney forces his way through, gets his shot on goal but can only win a corner.

1
Manchester United kick-off and we are underway.

Thanks for all your feedback. The players are emerging from the tunnel and we'll be underway shortly.

Connor: "I'm going to go for 4-1 to United with Rooney to get two."

Blaine: "Glad to see De Gea in goal in the aftermath of all the stupid criticism from the Tottenham game."

Marcus says: "I expect a hard game for Manchester United today. Fulham are a very good team. However, United to win 2-1."
