Chelsea entertain Manchester United at Stamford Bridge this evening as the two giants contest the last remaining FA Cup semi final place.
Antonio Conte has named a strong side for the game. Nemanja Matic is recalled to midfield with Cesc Fabregas dropping out while Willian comes in to the attack in place of Pedro.
Jose Mourinho’s striker crisis was eased after Marcus Rashford linked up with the squad last night and he’s been passed fit to start despite initially being a doubt due to illness.
David De Gea comes in between the sticks after being rested last week while Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian occupy the full-back roles. Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo all start so it looks like Mourinho might be playing three in defence.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kanté, Matic, Alonso, Willian, Costa, Hazard
Subs: Begovic, Terry, Zouma, Chalobah, Fabregas, Pedro, Batshuayi.
De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Darmian, Herrera, Pogba, Young, Mkhitaryan, Rashford.
Subs: Romero, Bailly, Blind, Carrick, Fellaini, Lingard, Mata.
