Manchester United head to Stamford Bridge on Easter Monday to take on Chelsea in an FA Cup quarter-final replay and we should be a set for a superb match between these two sides that will fancy their chances of lifting the trophy at Wembley.
They have met three times across all competitions this campaign and there has been one win for Chelsea, one for United and a draw. Also, 18 goals have been scored in the three encounters, so these matches are usually ones that entertain and with a place at Wembley at stake, it is sure to be no different this time out.
Chelsea v Man Utd : Paddy Power Free Bets Offer
Bank Holiday Monday sees Chelsea v Man Utd, live from Stamford Bridge as Paddy Power celebrate with a new free bet offer worth £250/€250 to customers to spend on the match! – claim here!
at Chelsea to begin with, this is the second game of their hectic week that sees them involved on Thursday and Sunday as well, so Rafael Benitez needs to use his squad to its maximum here.
On Saturday afternoon, the Blues went down 2-1 to Southampton in what was another poor performance from Benitez’s men.
They are in a fight to finish in the top four of the Premier League, but with FA Cup and Europa League matches taking place in the next few days, they must put that to one side this week.
The Londoners won this compeition last season under Roberto Di Matteo and fans will expect silverware again this campaign.
They know it is going to be tough against United, but Chelsea have a squad more than capable of coming out on top in this one. At the moment, the home side are available at 6/4 to win inside 90 minutes.
With Fernando Torres putting in another poor display last time out, Demba Ba could start this one and he is decent value to grab the first goal of the game at 7/1.
As for Manchester United, it is all about delivering the Premier League and FA Cup double this term and unlike their opponents, the Red Devils have a week to recover after this encounter as they take on Manchester City next Monday night.
In the 1-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday, Sir Alex Ferguson left the likes of Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra out of the starting eleven and they are sure to all be involved this time out.
Rooney is the in-form striker for United at this moment as well as he has scored three goals in his last four games for the Premier League-leaders, whereas Robin van Persie hasn’t found the net for his club in eight matches now.
With confidence in the squad so high, you can be sure that United will come out and attack right from the off here and if they get a two-goal lead – which they did in the first tie earlier in the month – Ferguson will do all he can to make sure they don’t throw it away.
The away side do look to be good value at 27/14 to the game inside normal time.
Manchester United and Chelsea have played some cracking matches this campaign and we should be treated to an afternoon of entertainment from Stamford Bridge at 12.30pm on Monday afternoon.
