Chelsea, United Set For FA Cup Showdown

The stage is set for a cracker in the final quarter final showdown of the English FA Cup when Jose Mourinho leads his charges to his former stomping ground to take on league runaway leaders Chelsea.

United who are without talisman,  Zlatan Ibrahimovic through suspension and the strike trio of Rooney, Martial and Rashford through injuries have it all to do if they are to avoid a similar occurrence to what happened at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season when the Blues put four past them at the Bridge.

Antonio Conte might be set to name a strong starting XI with the likes of Victor Moses, Ngolo Kante, Eden Hazard and David Luiz all set to start in a game that gives the Blues a shot at nicking a double this season.

The winner of the tie will go on to face one of Manchester City, Arsenal or Tottenham following the semi-final draw that is set to take place after the game.
