Man Of The Match :
Chelsea have lost exactly half of their last 10 games in all competitions (W5 L5), as many defeats as they suffered in their previous 41 (W28 D8).
United are the first team to eliminate both Arsenal and Chelsea in the same FA Cup campaign since the Red Devils themselves in 1998/99.
Chelsea only attempted two shots on target in this match, with both coming in the 11th minute of the tie.
Manchester United had just 33.1 per cent of the ball during the game, their lowest possession figure in a fixture any competition since March 2018 against Liverpool, in a game they also won (32.1 per cent).
Solskjaer has now won 11 of his 13 games in charge of Manchester United, one more than Jose Mourinho won with the club in 2018/19 (10/24).
Since Solskjaer took charge of United on December 19, 2018, the only Premier League player to have had a hand in more goals for his club side than Pogba (15) is Son Heung-Min (16).
Manchester United will be without their regular duo Lingard and Anthony Martial, who got injured in their 2 Nil defeat to French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) at Old Trafford on Tuesday last week. This leaves United with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, as starting options for the FA Cup fifth round away tie against Chelsea at Stanford Bridge on Monday Night.
The above assertion was also made by Manchester United caretaker Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, also mentioning a few youngsters from the academy.
“It’s a chance for anyone who plays, if it’s Alexis or Romelu or who starts or [Tahith] Chong or Angel [Gomes].
“Anthony and Jesse have done very well for us, they’re vital in the attacking part with their attributes with their pace but then again with Rom and Alexis, they’ve got different skillsets so they will be able to show what they can do.”
Chelsea on the other hand are coming into the game on the back of a good victory against Swedish Champions Malmoe FF on Thursday.
Chelsea Assistant Coach Gianfranco Zola said Chelsea needs to be consistent, especially in this crucial period of their season.
“We know that it’s a crucial moment. It’s very challenging, I think the key will be to face each task by only thinking about that task.
“The first one is going to be United and we come into this game after a good performance in the Europa League. It’s a good challenge, it’s actually what we need to do right now.
“We know that we have to be consistent. We all know this. It’s important everyone knows the situation and is working on it, players, coaches and club.”
Chelsea will have no new injury concerns, only waiting for a late injury report on Ruben Loftus-Cheek after the recurrence of his persistent back problem. injury concern. Marcus Alonso will also be in contention, after being dropped out of their Europa League fixture.
