Man United vs Chelsea team news

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer failed to clarify whether Sergio Romero will continue his starting place for United’s cup games and Jesse Lingard is also not certain to feature.

Luke Shaw will miss the tie due to an ankle problem and Brandon Williams is expected to take his place.

For the Blues, the only change may see Willian start on the bench with Callum Hudson-Odoi the most likely to take his place. Ngolo Kante remains sidelined.

Man United vs Chelsea head to head

Chelsea’s last victory against their opponents came in 2018, a 1-0 league win while three of the last 10 fixtures have ended in draws.

Man United vs Chelsea current form

United are on a better run of form coming into the match, having rediscovered their form especially since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes.

They have not lost a game in all competitions since a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley on January 22.

Chelsea on the other hand, seem to be suffering from some sort of nerves as they have lost twice in their last five matches.

Man United vs Chelsea prediction

The odds favor a Man United win due to the superiority they have shown over Chelsea in the recent past but as we know FA Cup games have no respect for form.

The youthfulness of the Chelsea squad could give them an edge but both teams to score is the most likely outcome. A draw is also not too far-fetched in this nail-biting contest.
