With the draw for the FA Cup having been made on Monday night, with Gareth Southgate and Robbie Savage doing the honours, Manchester United were given a trip to Ewood Park, to take on Blackburn Rovers.

The exact date of the tie wasn`t revealed as everybody was waiting for the television companies to pick their allotted games.

As it turns out, the 5th round tie between Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United will be broadcast by BT Sport on Sunday 19th February.

Now, we have to say that being selected as one of the live matches isn`t a surprise, after all, according to the records, this will be the 57th/b> Manchester United FA Cup tie on the bounce that the nation will view through the medium of television.

It`s a record that stretches back some 12 years and a record I doubt anyone else can get close to matching, unless you know different?
