Manchester:

Giuseppe Rossi scored twice to lead Manchester United to a 5-0 victory over Burton Albion on Wednesday in their English FA Cup third-round replay. Everton also advanced to the fourth round with a 1-0 victory over League Championship side Millwall. Playing without suspended Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, United started with a second-choice team. Louis Saha scored the first goal off Kieran Richardson's cross in the 7th minute and Rossi added the second goal. Richardson scored the third in the 52nd, a blistering 18-meter left-footed shot before a near sellout at Old Trafford. It was United's first victory of this year after failing to win any of its first four matches. United already has been eliminated from the European Champions League and lost 3-1 to cross-town rival Man City last weekend. The win puts Man United into the fourth round against Wolverhampton.
