The FA Cup quarter-final clash between Manchester United and Chelsea is definitely the most looked forward to match in the current round of cup fixtures. The fortunes of both clubs might be significantly different right now but this has been a big match for a number of years and that won’t change anytime soon.
The last meeting between these two giants of English football ended in a humiliating 4-0 defeat for the Red Devils. It was also Jose Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge since his second sacking by the Blues, and it wasn’t a pleasant homecoming. However, their form has since improved considerably.
Their rivals’ form was a focus on Chelsea’s official website preview, with them taking note of the improved form of Mourinho’s men. However, it was a case of brilliant trolling by the person who wrote the article as the praise was followed by a line that highlighted how their form has had no difference on their standings.
