Huddersfield Town host Manchester United in this evening's late FA Cup Fifth Round clash in front of the BT Sports cameras.

With Premier League aspirations put aside, David Wagner's men will be hoping to recreate the memorable 2-1 home win against the footballing giants back in October.

But with the Red Devils a whopping 16 points behind Manchester rivals City in the table, Jose Mourinho will be looking for more than just revenge.

Alongside the Champions League, the competition is United's only legitimate source of silverware this term but they will have to do without star midfielder Paul Pogba who is ill.

For Town, Alex Pritchard is cup-tied while Aaron Mooy (knee), Michael Hefele (ill), Chris Lowe (hamstring) and Sean Scannell (shoulder) are all out.

Bringing you all the pre-match news and extensive match comment and analysis is Blake Welton with expert analysis and opinion from Rory Benson.

FT: Huddersfield Town 0 Manchester United 2

That’s it! The referee blows for full-time and Huddersfield Town are knocked out of this season’s FA Cup courtesy of two Romelu Lukaku strikes on the counter-attack.

Nevertheless, it has been a positive and spirited display from David Wagner’s men and one which no doubt the German boss will reflect on in his post-match press conference.

Rory Benson is heading down there right now and you can follow it all in our LIVE Blog as both coaches speak to the media.

Stat Attack...

HT: Huddersfield Town 0 Manchester United 1

The referee blows for half-time and Manchester United lead here at the John Smith’s Stadium...

Romelu Lukaku gave the visitors a third minute lead but David Wagner’s side responded well and dominated the rest of the half.

The on the stroke of half-tim Juan Mata thought he’d made it two only for his goal to be ruled out via the use of VAR.

Disallowed Goal!

45 Minutes: Juan Mata has the ball in the net after a smart Manchester United counter-attack - Ashley Young plays him into the area, Mata rounds Jonas Lossl and places the ball into the back of the net.

But referee Kevin Friend consults VAR and disallows the goal - it’s still only 1-0 to Manchester United!

Break-In-Play

39 Minutes: Steve Mounie is down receiving treatment but should be ok to continue.

Still 1-0 but Billing is impressing in the middle with Hadergjonaj also causing no end of problems for Luke Shaw, who is getting no support from Alexis Sanchez.

Great Save!

33 Minutes: Billing tries a curling effort from 30 yards out which is dealt with by Romero - after the hectic opening 15 minutes the game has slowed in tempo a little but Town are still impressing.

Speculative Effort...

28 Minutes: Danny Williams tries his luck from range but the 30 yard effort was never going to test Romero....suppose with the rain it was worth an effort.

Another Chance!

23 Minutes: Hadergjonaj is tormenting Luke Shaw at the moment - he whips a dangerous ball into the area but Ince can’t get a good enough contact on it.

Town Push On...

22 Minutes: Danny Williams drives into the area and clips a cross towards the penalty spot; the ball is met by the head of Rajiv van La Parra but it’s a comfortable save for Romero.

Still 1-0 to Manchester United but Huddersfield Town have been dominant so far...

Pre-Match Atmosphere...

Great Defending...

18 Minutes: Manchester United finally come forward - Schindler has to block an initial effort from Chris Smalling from a corner before beating him in the area again when the ball comes back in.

All Town...

I don’t even think Alexis Sanchez has touched the ball for Manchester United yet...

Great Effort....

14 Minutes: Town are really taking the game to their visitors - Florent Hadergjonaj cuts in from the right and drills a low effort straight into the hands of Romero from 20 yards out.
