Foreign managers don't get FA Cup: Jose Mourinho

Scholes urges Man United to make this controversial signing- or land Griezmann

The match ends in favor of the visitors with referee blowing the whistle to end the match at Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Manchester United.

The Portuguese wasted no time in framing the narrative, suggesting Chelsea's eight-point lead had effectively settled the title race and they could now focus on making it a domestic double.

Manchester United have also reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and are likely to progress in the Europa League. We have to fight for a top-four position in the Premier League.

Mourinho said after his side's victory: "I think the attitude of every player was really good".

"Chelsea can only think about the FA Cup because they are champions and have nothing else to fight for".

Rovers impressed as they narrowly went out of the Emirates FA Cup at the weekend, but the striker insists it will count for nothing if they can't follow it up against the Brewers.

Machester United will be travelling to Saint-Etienne in the Europa League this Wednesday with an advantage behind their back to face Southampton in the EFL Cup final next Sunday as reported by BBC. If both teams can carry their form into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, fans should be in for an incredible match. Have your say in the comments section below.

Blackburn started well; their opening goal would have stood out in the Premier League where they last played five years ago.

Rashford praised Henrikh Mkhitaryan's assist for his goal against Blackburn as well as hailing the impact made by star substitutes Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who combined for United's victor.

After the latest game against Blackburn, Mourinho wanted to praise the players for the awesome attitude. He held the ball off, turned the guy a couple of times and slipped me in and I've managed to stick it away which was nice. I think we deserved to win, but I think Blackburn would also have deserved to go to Old Trafford.

Asked whether United could win a treble of cup competitions this season, Scholes said: "They could". The team won the FA Cup final last season by drawing Sheffield United, Derby County, Shrewsbury Town, West Ham, Everton and Crystal Palace.
