Two great English sides battles for glory as Manchester United visit Stamford bridge on Monday night for their FA Cup 5th round clash.



 

Chelsea returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory at Malmo in the Europa League on Thursday, following their 6-0 humiliation against Manchester City in the Premier League last Sunday.

Chelsea, the defending champions, beat Jose Mourinho's Manchester United in the final last season and finished as runners up to Arsenal the year before.

Manchester United, the visiting team, will be looking to bounce back from their first defeat under caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Reds 11 game unbeaten run under Solskjaer came to an end at OldTrafford on Tuesday night when losing 2-0 to the French Champions Paris Saint Germain despite the absence of stars Cavani and Neymar Jnr, but are still on a six match winning run away from home in all competition and can make it seven in a row for the first time since 2002.

After last season's Wembley heartbreak in the final, United will relish the prospect of eliminating the blues and securing progression to a fifth consecutive FA Cup quarter final.

As of this year in the FA Cup from the fifth round onwards, if the game finishes a draw after 90 mins, there will no longer be a replay. Instead a winner will be found on the day with extra time and then penalties if necessary.

Possibly Line Ups for both teams:

Chelsea:

Kepa - Azipilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso - Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic - Willian, Higuain, Hazard.

Manchester United:

Romero- Young, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw - Matic, Herrera, Pogba' - Lukaku, Mata, Rashford.
