WATCH: MATCH HIGHLIGHTS
SWANSEA 0-2 MAN UTD
FT: That's that! It was comfortable in the end for United as two superb finishes by Lingard send United through to the last eight.
That's only the third time in six years United have reached the last eight, their 20th overall. Can the holders go all the way?
90+3: Corner to Swansea as Naughton's late swinger goes wide.
CLOSE! Point-blank reaction save by Romero to keep out Fer at the back post after the corner was flicked on.
90+1: This game is dead. United just knocking it around with ease. No real intent to get a third.
90: Three added minutes here...
87: Interestingly, Shaw got a very good reception from United's travelling support as he ran onto the pitch.
United playing around with it in Swansea's half... Lingard paces forward, looks to find Lukaku, but his pass is very loose.
85: United have gone into their shell a tad since the double substitution. They're making another one here; Luke Shaw is introduced for Martial.
83: Lingard's team-mates may forgive him for having a go from 25 yards out. Left-footed, it's into the palms of Nordfeldt, fairly central.
81: Routledge goes a fraction too early again from Abraham's lofted ball. Offside, good decision.
79: Blind gives van der Hoorn a cheeky push in the box as a deep ball comes in, but referee Madley says there was nothing to it. Swansea not happy.
SWANSEA v MAN UTD PRICE BOOSTS
Swansea sub Tammy Abraham is a 10/1 Price Boost to get on the scoresheet in the closing minutes here.

77: Booking for Tuanzebe, who is late on Ayew outside the box. Good shooting position for Swansea...
Ayew takes, but it's routine housekeeping for Romero. Straight into his chest.
75: SAVE! I would class this as Romero's first real save this evening.
It opens up for sub Abraham, around 20 yards out, and it's a decent effort towards the top corner, but Romero tips it over!
72: United's travelling support have been superb here. They haven't stopped singing all game.
Change for Swansea... McBurnie comes off, replaced by Abraham for the final 20 minutes or so.
69: McTominay has looked good this evening, and he gets a huge round of applause from the travelling fans as he wins a corner on the rgiht.
MISS! From Lingard's corner, Smalling's header is unconvincingly saved by Nordfeldt... it falls to Tuanzebe on the stretch three yards out but he somehow pokes it over the bar!
67: Double sub for United. Rashford and Herrera make way for Lukaku and Matic.
Lukaku has gone three games without a goal... good opportunity for him to get on the scoresheet in the final 25 minutes.
For Swansea, Fer comes off for Mesa.
WATCH: LINGARD'S SUPERB HEADER
65: CHANCE! Hat-trick chance for Lingard from an acute angle. He's found by Blind's cute through ball, but he flashes it across the face of goal!
63: Looks like there will be a double sub for United... Matic and Lukaku are ready to come on.
61: Here come United again with Martial on the left. He fizzes one in, but van der Hoorn clears. Only as far as another red shirt however, and United are looking for more...
GOAL! SWANSEA 0-2 MAN UTD (Lingard 59)
What a finish, and United are in control now. It's an exceptional finish by Lingard, this time with his head.
Tuanzebe finds Darmian out wide on the right, and he spots the run of Lingard into the area. On the gallop, he directs a fine header from fully 18 yards into the top left corner!
SWANSEA 0-1 MAN UTD
58: Cynical from Clucas, nowhere near the ball on Rashford, and a deserved yellow. Free-kick, 40 yards out.
United take it short, Lindelof does well to find Lingard to run at goal, but there's a tangle of legs in the box and Naughton comes away with the ball.
56: The flow has been halted in this game somewhat. For all Swansea's endeavour and hard work there's no real sign of a goal coming their way.
54: Nearly another devastating passage of play by United. Rashford flicks it on for Lingard, he sees Martial running in-behind, but Mawson does well to cut out the through ball.
52: United do get over halfway, and win a free-kick on the left. Rashford delivers, Nordfeldt punches despite being under no pressure, but Blind makes a hash of the effort back at goal.
49: Swansea again with plenty of the ball in United's defensive third, and the visitors are currently struggling to come forward.
47: Martial has been completely winded after going up for a challenge with Rangel. It looks like his back landed on the boot of Rangel.
All accidental, but painful.
46: Back underway in the second half here. How long until we see Tammy Abraham here at the Liberty?
It's 9/1 for United to stretch their legs after the break and run out 3-0 winners here, with Jesse Lingard 9/2 to add to his tally in normal time. Marcus Rashford is 13/2 to score next and Martial 11/4 to score in the second half.

HT: That's the half, and a relatively even one but for the scoreline. Lingard's goal from a lovely Rashford flick has United ahead, but Swansea have looked dangerous going forward.
Mourinho will have a few stern words with his players at half-time, I have little doubt, but at the moment they're heading into the last eight.
45+1: Lindelof simply looks off the pace and nervous. McBurnie has him in the prime position on the left byline, breezes by him with ease, but his through ball is missing.
45: CLOSE! Space opens up for Clucas around 25 yards out. He looks to pass it into the far corner, bending it around United's players, but it's just wide of Romero's right-hand post.
43: Half chance for youngster McTominay. Herrera robs Mesa, gives it to Martial on the right, whose cut back is perfect for McTominay to hit.
He has a go first time, but it's a few yards over the bar. Get your head over the ball!
41: McTominay plays a loose ball for Lingard, and Swansea can come forward. Ki's ball into Clucas is also loose, and they lose out again.
39: Trouble for Martin Olsson, whose hamstring looks to have gone. Kyle Naughton is stripped and ready for action, and comes on..
37: United have settled a tad. Mawson sticks a long diagonal into the sky looking for Routledge, but he's getting nowhere near that.
35: Swansea have really pressed since going behind here. United don't look full assured as the hosts enter their final third, but they have the lead.
33: Routledge gets on Tuanzebe's wrong side, goes down under the United youngster's challenge in the box, but only a corner is given! Big appeal by Swansea, and Tuanzebe could have taken less of a risk there, but he's got away with it.
WATCH: LINGARD GIVES UNITED LEAD
31: CLOSE! So close for Swansea's young striker McBurnie, but he knew nothing about it! Blind looks to head a cross clear, he mistimes it and it hits the thigh of McBurnie and wide!
29: The flag stays down despite Routledge being miles offside, which confuses Lindelof as he fails to intercept the ball. Routledge collects it, Lindelof has got goal-side, and eventually United get rid.
Poor from the linesman...
27: Rashford over it, fizzes it in again, low and into the six-yard box looking for any touch, but Mawson clears.
After making the first goal with that clever flick, Rashford is a 6/1 Price Boost to score the next goal of the game. It's 11/2 for United to go on and win this 2-0, with Anthony Martial 2/1 to get his name on the scoresheet.
Click here to place your bets...
25: Good fight from McTominay on the left to win a free-kick from Rangel after forcing his way past him. Good crossing position for United now...
23: Ki looks to drop it in for Routledge behind the defence, but he had gone too late. Offside.
GOAL! SWANSEA 0-1 MAN UTD (Lingard 21)
I was just about to say how pleased Paul Clement will be with this start, but United simply pierce the Swansea defence in two passes.
Herrera plays a fierce low ball into Rashford, whose lovely flick is into the path of Lingard.
He has loads to do, takes it relatively early, and finds the bottom right corner past Nordfeldt!
SWANSEA 0-0 MAN UTD
20: Rashford puts hit boot through the free-kick, Rangel gets up and clears for a corner. Rashford takes low, Herrera lets it through his legs, but Rangel clears again.
18: Nasty, very nasty, from Ki on Martial over near the right corner flag. He catches him hard with a sliding tackle in a nothing area. Free-kick, but no yellow.
16: Lindelof looked far from convincing there as he misjudges the flight of the ball, just as he did on Saturday for Huddersfield's second.
It allows Ayew to get a run on Smalling; he almost forces his way through, but Romero is quick to snuff him out at his feet.
14: It looks like a back three for United tonight, with Tuanzebe on the left of Smalling, and Lindelof on the right. Darmian is right-wing-back, Blind left.
