Man Utd 5-3 Blackburn – Carling Cup – Highlights
Carlos Tevez scored four times to lead Manchester United into the Carling Cup semi-finals at Blackburn’s expense.
Tevez headed in from close-range and then set up Nani to fire home, before Benni McCarthy’s shot pulled one back.
Tevez struck next from the spot after he was fouled by Martin Olsson, before tapping in another to seal his treble.
McCarthy set up Matt Derbyshire to slot in and McCarthy struck himself from four yards out, before Tevez hammered in a cracker to seal it in injury time.
Tevez’s magnificent display is sure to cause selection problems for boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who has left him on the bench for much of the season in the league.
As for Blackburn, their poor performance will not ease the pressure on under-fire manager Paul Ince, who has seen his side slip into the Premier League drop zone in recent weeks.
They promised much in a lively opening, with a Stephen Warnock shot forcing Ben Foster to tip over early on, but soon it was all United.
Tevez was at the heart of every attack and Rovers could not live with his movement, t
