Can Man United make it a quartet of wins against Chelsea this season?

The prestigious Wembley stadium is ready to host one of the biggest fixtures of English football as Man United lock horns with Chelsea in the semi-final of the 2019-20 FA cup this season.

Going by the past meetings between these two this season, Manchester United will be smacking their lips at this game.

Aside for a place in the final of the FA cup, Chelsea will be seeking revenge when they file out against the Red Devils this weekend.

Manchester United have won all three meetings against Chelsea this season, but can they make it a quartet of wins when both sides square up in the FA cup on Sunday?

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men are the in-form team in the Premier league since Project restart.
They are unbeaten in 19 games across all competitions, and they’ve managed to keep their top four hopes alive.

Frank Lampard’s team currently sit in Champions League places but the FA cup remains their most feasible chance to grab a trophy this season.

Stats

Man United are unbeaten against Chelsea since May 2018.

The Red Devils have scored a minimum of two goals in their last 3 games against Chelsea.

The Blues have conceded eight goals and scored once against Man United this season.

Manchester United have won 4 of their last 5 games by at least two goals [4W, 1D].

Chelsea have won 3 of their last 5 games [3W, 2L].

Verdict

Manchester United have had it easy against Chelsea this season, but the FA cup is a different competition and the pendulum could swing either way.
The odds are rightly in United’s favour, they’ve momentum and are the better team on paper.
Chelsea will give their best but i think Manchester United will get a win in this game, except Lampard manages to orchestrate a miracle.

Prediction: Manchester United 3-1 Chelsea
