Starting XI: Chelsea vs Man Utd

Premier LEagueStarting XI: Chelsea vs Manchester United

By Keegan Kruger - Mar 13, 2017 08:48 PM @KeeganKruger

Premier League leaders Chelsea welcome Jose Mourinho's Manchester United to Stamford Bridge for an FA Cup quarter-final on Monday night – here is how the two teams will line up.

The last time these two sides met in London, the Red Devils suffered an embarrassing 4-0 loss in the Premier League encounter.

This will be the 12th time the two teams have been drawn against each other in the FA Cup, with United winning eight and Chelsea three of the previous match-ups.

The Blues will go into this game full of confidence as they are unbeaten in their past 11 league and cup games against the side from Manchester.

Chelsea won six and drew five of those 11 matches against United, and have only conceded three goals in their past nine matches against Mourinho's club.

The Red Devils have a terrible record at Stamford Bridge as they have only managed to win twice in 19 games at the stadium, drawing six and losing the other 11 fixtures.

The last time United lost an FA Cup tie away from Old Trafford was their 1-0 defeat by Chelsea in 2013; however, Mourinho has never lost an FA Cup quarter-final.

In team news, the Red Devils will be without Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney and Marcus Rashford due to injuries and sickness, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended for the tie.

Chelsea will have a fully fit squad available for the tie.

Here are the starting line-ups:

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Kanté, Matić, Alonso; Willian, Costa, Hazard.

Manchester United: De Gea; Jones, Smalling, Rojo; Valencia, Herrera, Pogba, Darmian; Young, Mkhitaryan, Rashford.

What's your prediction for tonight's game? Have your say in the comment section below.
