Ahead of the FA Cu quarterfinal much of the talk has been about Chelsea’s counterattacking style, something manager Antonio Conte has dismissed after some comments from Mourinho, while United have a striker crisis with none of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford or Anthony Martial available for this game.

In team news Chelsea start with Nemanja Matic and Willian in place of Cesc Fabregas and Pedro.

United start Marcus Rashford despite doubts over his fitness, while Mourinho starts with a three-man central defense once again with Matteo Darmian in a left wing back role and Antonio Valencia at right wing back.
