Another weekend where we have to wait all the way until Monday night for Chelsea to play, though this time instead of a trip across town to the Olympic Stadium, we stay at home and instead welcome serial late arrivals Manchester United. Let’s hope they’ve accounted for traffic this time.
Mourinho’s United have been travelling all across Europe this week, but they will no doubt be motivated to not only get one over their current manager’s old team, but also to avenge the 4-0 humiliation they suffered earlier this season at the Bridge, while also progressing into the FA Cup semifinals as they attempt to mitigate possibly finishing outside of the Champions League spots in the Premier League by winning both the League Cup and the FA Cup.
For Chelsea, it’s another match where the whole squad is healthy and willing and ready to go. Conte has stuck to his policy of rotating for both cups so far, but we already saw a slightly less drastic changing on the lineup in the previous round. How much rotation would you be comfortable with for this one?
