Chelsea fights back to earn Man-U replay

MANCHESTER, England - Chelsea came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Manchester United on Sunday and earn a replay of their FA Cup quarterfinal, inflicting further pain Alex Ferguson’s side who have endured a week to forget.

The hosts, knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid last Tuesday after a controversial red card for Nani, took a fifth-minute lead through Javier Hernandez and doubled their lead six minutes late with a Wayne Rooney free kick.

Just when United had started to think they could smell a Wembley date, Chelsea pulled one back on 59 minutes through substitute Eden Hazard before Ramires leveled nine minutes later. Reuters
