Chelsea News and Form

This is the big one then of the FA Cup fifth round. Both sides and were in European action in midweek so had an extra workload ahead of this tie. The form of Chelsea hasn’t been particularly consistent and on the domestic front, they have taken a W4 L4 record in their last eight games across all competitions. It is worth noting that most of their problems have been away from Stamford Bridge, Chelsea are on a five-match winning streak on home soil, unbeaten in six there. Chelsea have also scored at least two goals in each of their last five home games.

From a defensive perspective, Chelsea have taken four clean sheets in their last six fixtures at Stamford Bridge. Will they be able to put it together on home soil? Overall this season, Chelsea have only lost one home game in all competitions, a Premier league defeat against Leicester back in December. It has been a fairly comfortable ride for Chelsea in the FA Cup so far this season, having taken back-to-back wins over Championship sides Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge. Both of those Cup wins were with a clean sheet. Chelsea have produced good Cup form this season, having reached the final of the EFL Cup.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United have been to Stamford Bridge once already this season, playing out a 2-2 draw in the Premier League meeting back in August. This is a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final which Chelsea took a 1-0 victory in. Things are even though in the last five meetings with two wins each and a draw between them. Manchester United had their first taste of defeat under the interim management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as PSG beat them in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie on Tuesday. United did pick up a couple of injuries in the game to a couple of their speedy forwards Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Manchester United have great away form behind them having won each of their last six fixtures away from Old Trafford. The large part of the early season they were struggling defensively on the road, but they have now taken four clean sheets in their last five away games. They passed a big test in the last round of the FA Cup as they were out on the road at Arsenal, Manchester United prevailing by a 3-1 scoreline. The Red Devils had opened their account with a 2-0 victory over Championship side Reading in the third round. With their Champions League campaign looking in major jeopardy, and little chance at the Premier League title, the Red Devils have every reason to go hard at this big FA Cup tie at Chelsea.

Tough game to call. But frankly Manchester United look to have more about them pushing forward and they are taking on a fragile Chelsea defence. Away win.
