Manchester United endured another outing to forget against Chelsea in the FA Cup quarter-finals, with the Blues proving to be a serious thorn in their side.

A 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Monday means the Red Devils have now gone 12 games without success against the men from Stamford Bridge.

Herrera, not ref, handed Chelsea victory

Only Leeds United and Liverpool can claim to have held longer unbeaten record against the Old Trafford heavyweights, with those runs recorded back in the 20th century.

In the modern era, it is the Blues that continue to frustrate United and hold a domestic hoodoo over fierce rivals.

United’s last victory over Chelsea came back in October 2012, when they prevailed 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

Mou gives Chelsea fans the fingers

The Red Devils almost threw the game away that day as well, with a two-goal lead surrendered.

Javier Hernandez snatched a winner, though, 15 minutes from time, with the Blues down to nine men by that stage after seeing Branislav Ivanovic and Fernando Torres sent off.
