Chelsea expected line-up against Manchester United

FA Cup holders Chelsea welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge on Monday evening for the FA Cup fifth round clash. Sarri fielded a mixed XI for the midweek trip to Sweden, leaving star man Eden Hazard on the bench for 70 minutes and giving Gonzalo Higuain the evening off. Both men are expected to be recalled against United, however, which could spell bad news for Olivier Giroud, who has had a hand in 23 goals in 28 appearances in the FA Cup, averaging a goal or assist every 73 minutes in the competition.
  • Out: Marco van Ginkel (knee)
  • Doubtful: Danny Drinkwater (tendon), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back), Gary Cahill (back)
Here is how Maurizio Sarri may set out his side for Monday’s tie.
