Chelsea play amazing this season and they are favorites to reach the Semi-finals of the FA Cup, but in order to go through they have to eliminate Manchester United in the Quarter-finals. Chelsea stand at the top of the table in Premier League with 10 points more than second Tottenham, so they are on a good way to win the title. It doesn’t mean that they are not interested in FA Cup. There are only two matches left until the final of that competition, so home side will be fully motivated to lift that trophy at the end. Antonio Conte‘s men won the last 12 home games in all competitions, so they want to continue with good performance and make another celebration for their fans. Eden Hazard and Chelsea’s top scorer Diego Costa are in the great form, so they both along Pedro should be very dangerous for visitors. In the Premier League match between Chelsea vs Manchester United in October last year, home side smashed team from Manchester 4-0, so they hope that can repeat that success.
Manchester United haven’t start this season impressive and they played very poor, but Jose Mouinho‘s men have improved their performance and they are look as a very strong team in this moment. The title race for visitors is over, but they still have a chance to win Europa League and FA Cup, so the match against FC Chelsea at Stamford Bridge is very important for them and they will try to do their best in order to reach the Semis. Big blow for visitors will be the absence of their top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is out due to suspension. Visitors are unbeaten in the last 10 games in all competitions, so they are travel to London fully motivated to make another good performance. Interesting fact is that Manchester United failed to beat Chelsea in the last 11 matches in all competitions, so if they want to make something good against Chelsea, they will have to do their maximum. Without their top scorer it won’t be easy.
Home side have full squad available, while on the other side visitors will be without suspended Ibrahimovic and long-term injured Pereira.
