Misery for Mourinho as Chelsea beat United to reach Cup semis

Conte should give these 3 Chelsea players a chance in the FA Cup against Man United

Conte should give these 3 Chelsea players a chance in the FA Cup against Man United

Chelsea subs: Begovic, Terry, Zouma, Chalobah, Fabregas, Pedro, Batshuayi.

The last option would be to use both Fellaini and Mkhitaryan in a 3-5-2 formation with Pogba, Carrick, Herrera, Shaw and Valencia forming a five-man midfield while Rojo, Smelling and Bailly at the back.

0037 hrs IST: The last time these two sides met, Jose Mourinho had a nightmare of a return.

And he suffered his biggest defeat in English football when Chelsea won 4-0 in the Premier League last October.

"The decision has come from him", Mourinho told BBC Sport. United, on the other hand, endured a lean run but have now got into their stride.

"So we have to try, we have to try by every means". They had a dilemma in their hands when Jose Mourinho found himself without a striker for tonight's clash.

We hope it's not a big issue but it looks similar". "I'm sure it will be investigated and left to the authorities". Speaking after the match, Pochettino said: "It was a game that we took very seriously, we were very focused.

In the absence of attacking trio Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anthony Martial and captain Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford will lead the line in tonight's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final, supported by Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who scored United's goal in Russian Federation in midweek.

Marcus Rashford could be available for Man United on Monday after all. As far as form goes, there is little to seperate the two sides.

The Manchester United players protested the decision furiously and many neutral observers also felt the decision looked somewhat harsh.

Chelsea capitalised on Ander Herrera's sending-off to win a hard-fought FA Cup quarter-final with holders Manchester United and maintain their pursuit of a domestic Double.

United has used the memory of that painful loss to fuel a dominant period which has seen it lose just twice in all competitions since then.
