The two sides are nine points apart in the second standings, with the Blades in second and Rovers in fifth.
United reached the quarter-finals thanks to a stunning 1-0 win over Tottenham, but their form has been up and down lately with three wins and two defeats in their last five appearances.
Blackburn are on a roll, with just one defeat in their last 13 games in all competitions, and they also beat Premier League opposition in the final round by beating Leicester 2-1.
The two sides have already met twice this season; Sheffield United won 3–0 at Bramall Road in August, before Rovers won 1–0 at Ewood Park in March.

Kickoff and channel

If you’re abroad for an FA Cup tie, you won’t be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. However, you can use a VPN to get around that, without resorting to illegal feeds found on Reddit.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it meets your broadcaster’s terms and conditions, creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning the service can’t determine where you are and let you watch. And all the information that passes between them is completely encrypted, anonymous and secure – and that’s a result.
There are plenty of good options out there. For the FA Cup, FourFourTwo currently recommends:
