The visitors needed a Bruno Fernandes penalty deep into stoppage time to snatch a 3-2 victory on the south coast on Saturday after it looked like Solly March’s goal had earned Brighton a share of the spoils.
Expect plenty of changes for this second act, with United having beaten Luton to progress this far and Brighton easing past EFL opposition in Portsmouth and Preston.

FULL TIME! United win 3-0 and are now one win away from reaching a third semi-final under Solskjaer.
87 mins: Lingard fires wide when he should have picked out Rashford.
86 mins: That would have been a lovely goal for Dalot, but he was denied by Steele. A great team move involving Mata and Van de Beek to cut open Brighton.
81 mins: Substitutes for each side with Sanders on for Molumby and Lingard for Fred.
Replays show it took a slight deflection, but it was still a quality hit from Pogba.
GOAL! 80 mins: Absolute magic from Pogba. 20-yard free kick into the top corner. Brilliant.
75 mins: Chance for Pogba. He heads narrowly wide from Dalot’s cross. Probably should have done better.
GOAL! 73 mins: Mata makes it two with a beautifully worked goal. Van de Beek’s flick to Mata sets the Spaniard through on goal and he passes the ball into the bottom right hand corner.
That was a reminder of Henderson’s quality. He’s not come back from Sheffield United to sit on the bench. He will expect to be No1 before the end of the season and saves like that will only pile the pressure on De Gea.
69 mins: Substitutions for United now. Pogba and Rashford for Ighalo and James.
68 mins: A stunning save from Henderson. Trossard connects to a cross and fires goal wards with power from around 12 yards, but Henderson gets a strong hand to it and pushes it wide.
63 mins: Substitution for Brighton as Trossard comes on for Jahanbakhsh.
58 mins: Brighton are still in this and seeing ample amounts of the ball. They’re still to truly threaten Henderson though.
53 mins: Fred has got his eye in tonight. He forces another save from distance – this time with a free kick. Will it be third time lucky?
SECOND HALF: No changes for either team.
HALF TIME United edge a step closer to the quarter finals thanks to McTominay’s goal.
44 mins: All credit to Mata. He won the free kick and then delivers a wonderful cross that McTominay had to finish.
Mata’s free kick finds McTominay free in the six yard box and he heads home.
37 mins: Not too many openings being created. We’re still waiting for the game to take off in the manner of the one over the weekend between these sides.
United’s quality really does dip when Solskjaer takes out his first string forwards, which is hardly a surprise.
29 mins: Now Fred has a effort from range. It’s on target, but never troubling the keeper.
