Premier League leader Manchester United required a second-half rally to edge past third-tier side Southampton 2-1 in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, and Salomon Kalou's late equalizer rescued Chelsea in a 1-1 draw at Everton.
United was 1-0 down at halftime at St. Mary's Stadium but the 11-time winners avoided an upset thanks to goals by strikers Michael Owen and Javier Hernandez in the space of 10 minutes after the break.
Everton dominated for long spells against Chelsea and took the lead when striker Louis Saha headed home a corner by Leighton Baines in the 62nd.
Chelsea equalized through Kalou, who finished off a flowing counterattack in the 75th with a shot that squirmed into the far corner to earn his team a replay.
