Chelsea vs Manchester United betting tips
Chelsea can stay on course for the domestic Double by ending Manchester United’s chances of collecting four trophies this season with victory in 90 minutes.
The Blues are 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table and look highly unlikely to throw that advantage away, while they will also hope to add the FA Cup to that success as they did in 2009-10 – which was also their first season under an Italian manager, that time Carlo Ancelotti.
Now Antonio Conte is targeting the same achievement at the direct expense of former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who ironically led the west Londoners to an FA Cup Final triumph in 2007 against his current employers Manchester United to lift the final trophy of his hugely successful first spell with the club.
Mourinho has already put silverware in the cabinet at Old Trafford, namely the EFL Cup and the Community Shield, and is hopeful of supplementing those with the Europa League and the FA Cup even though the latter will be extremely difficult given his side’s quarter-final test.

Plus, the return of the ‘Special One’ to his former home in the autumn resulted in a humiliating 4-0 defeat for the Red Devils, who were behind after 30 seconds, while only Liverpool of the 16 visitors to Stamford Bridge so far this season have stopped Chelsea from winning.
United’s form took an upturn after that October embarrassment and Hull, in a result that ultimately did not matter due to the aggregate scoreline, are the one team to have got the better of them domestically since then.
But Chelsea are head and shoulders above every other English side this term and they can secure the first of what they hope will be two visits to Wembley by ending United’s FA Cup chances at the Bridge for the second time in five seasons.
