Chelsea face Manchester United for the second time this season in Monday night’s FA Cup fifth round tie at Stamford Bridge, looking to build some momentum as they reach a crucial stage of their campaign.
Eden Hazard’s penalty gave the Blues a 1-0 victory in the final of the FA Cup against United in May last year, extending Chelsea’s recent good form against Monday’s opponents in this competition.
The Blues have won the last four FA Cup meetings between the two sides and could become the first side to eliminate United from the competition in five consecutive matches with a win on Monday.
United have lost three of their last five in this competition at Stamford Bridge, but travel to West London in much better form than Maurizio Sarri’s men.
