Everton will face Manchester United in the semi-finals. United faced a forceful and daring Blackpool side who took the game up to the division one stars and definitely scared them.

Blackpool hit the lead after 10 minutes with a 20 yard power shot. Kidd, with the help of Charlton, equalised before half time.

Manchester United hit the lead on the hour mark as George Best powered away from the Blackpool defence to casually slot the ball into the net, and give United a 2-1 lead.

With 10 minutes of the game remaining Blackpool shook United’s confidence with a well deserved equaliser. United stumbled along from then on, clumsily trying to find the winner. It came with a minute of the game to go, as the sublime and calm Best chipped the keeper for 12 yards out to send the United supporters, who travelled, into raptures of joy.

  1. Further evidence if needed that QPR fail to take Cup competitions seriously. Not surprised really. Just hurt and let down. 😜
