Chelsea vs Manchester United Match Preview
Chelsea’s excellent recent FA Cup record against Manchester United offers the holders of this trophy plenty of hope that they can bounce back from their Etihad Stadium mauling.
A 6-0 thrashing by Manchester City meant Maurizio Sarri became the odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job, following four progressively worse consecutive away defeats to nil.
But this century, the Blues have completely held the upper hand over United in the FA Cup, ending the Red Devils’ hopes of glory on four successive occasions including in two finals.
Each of those was in London as two quarter-finals, one of which went to a replay, were also settled by a solitary goal at Stamford Bridge – most recently two seasons ago when N’Golo Kante scored after Ander Herrera had been sent off for United.
Last term, of course, it was Eden Hazard who struck from the penalty spot at Wembley after he had been fouled by Phil Jones.
United will have confidence of their own after terrific wins in 2019 at Tottenham and, in this competition, Arsenal since improving massively under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while they almost won at Stamford Bridge earlier this season only to concede a stoppage-time equaliser.
But Chelsea have been much stronger at home than away of late and are backed to maintain their FA Cup hoodoo against these familiar rivals.
