That's it! United win 2-0 after two late goals and go five points clear at the top.
GOAL! ASHLEY YOUNG FOR UNITED!
GOAL! VALENCIA FINALLY BREAKS THE DEADLOCK! 1-0 TO UNITED!
Scholes makes way for Ashley Young.
Another change for United as Jones comes off and Ryan Giggs makes an appearance.
United make their first change as Danny Welbeck comes on for Hernandez.
Scholes is taken down yards outside the box by Hanley and the Rovers man earns a booking for his troubles. Free-kick United.
@HotScotRacing tweeted - "Come on Blackburn All the neutrals want the City v United game to be the decider."
Daryl Owusu-Antwi wrote in to say - "So far it's a godd performance from Man Utd but we can penetrate more. Jones may need to come off for Young so we can bombard both flanks and not just the right hand side. Rooney should be restored upfront and the goals will start flowing. 3 nil to the Red Devils :D"
Barry Lee is in agreement - "Let's not play people out of position. Need Pogba in for Carrick, Young for Jones. Come on United."
Henri Davids thinks Fergie needs to make some changes at half-time - "Fergie needs to change tactics. Jones is a passenger and so too is Chicharito. Rooney out wide is ineffective. Hope Young and Wellbeck come on in place for Jones and Chicharito early in the 2nd half. Then Utd should win. If not, Utd will be lucky to come away with a draw."
The whistle blows just as Rovers start to hit their stride after a quiet first half. It's 0-0 at Ewood Park.
Valencia gets the first booking of the game after charging down Martin Olsson on the attack.
Richard Hunter from Calgary in Canada wrote in to say - "I see United winning 3-1 to tonight. Hernandez to open the scoring before an equaliser from Yakubu, and then Rooney and Valencia grabbing 1 each to put the game to bed."
Sunderland fan Jeff says - "I hope Utd win tonight as they are my 2nd team, Martin O'Neills Red & White Army did Utd a huge favour at the weekend. I am predicting a 3-1 victory for The Red Devils tonight & for them to secure the title for the 20th time"
Dom Saunders is predicting the same scoreline as NYE but different victors. He tweeted - "I predict 3-2 once again in this clash, but this time United taking the 3 points. 2 goals from Rooney and a Phil Jones head."
...but Sam Ward thinks he can dream on - "Anyone that says a rovers win must be dumb. Howard Webb is referee that almost guarantee's a united win. 3-1 to Man UTD is my prediction."
Joban Singh is another fan forecasting a big Blackburn win - "I predict that Blackburn will win 5-1 with Yakubu scoring a hat-trick and Hoillet to score to for Blackburn and Rooney to score for United."
Chris Woods has been on Twitter to say - "strong united side out this evening going for 3-0 Rooney 2 and jones getting the 3rd"
Mark Manson is predicting a more conservative scoreline. He tweeted - "rovers to win 2-1! Biggest rovers fan living in the isle of wight!"
I can only assume Adam Gillis is an optimistic Blackburn fan - "6-1 Blackburn with Yakubu getting 5."
Abu Ubaid from India says - "The teams are really intriguing and i really feed bad for berbatov for not even making the squad.I think sir alex has chosed thefirst XI basically built for counter attack.. sitting deep and then attacking on the counter.. see no other reason why he would use 5 defenders and 1 defensive midfielder.. I predict 2-0 or 2-1 to man utd fingers crossed :)"
Barry Lee from South Carolina in the States wrote in to say - "Don't understand Cleverley's name missing again from team sheet. Not even on bench. Better than Park, Giggs and Carrick."
Our friends at Sky Bet tell us Rovers are 7/1 to cause another upset on home soil, while a draw is at 7/2 and Manchester United are 2/5.
