[ LIVE: Follow FA Cup semifinals ]

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard and United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are both hoping for top four finishes in the Premier League as a vehicle to return to the Champions League, but winning a trophy in their first full seasons in charge would also be very nice.

The winner of this game will play against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, as they shocked Manchester City with a 2-0 win in the first FA Cup semifinal on Saturday.

Solskjaer has hit out at Lampard ahead of this game, as the Chelsea boss has said that Man United have got a few penalty kick decisions going their way and Solskjaer believes there is a ‘narrative’ building against his team.

But both also know the value of the cups in terms of both team momentum and belief, not to mention what it can mean to a young manager’s faith from his supporters and bosses.

United, for what it’s worth, has bossed Chelsea this season to the tune of 4-0 and 2-0 wins. in Premier League play. With Chelsea essentially out of the Champions League thanks to a 3-0 first leg home loss to mighty Bayern Munich, this is Lampard’s last reasonable hope for a trophy in his first year as manager at Stamford Bridge.


Team news

Chelsea have Christian Pulisic on the bench as Frank Lampard confirmed he has a slight muscle injury, as Mason Mount replaces him in the lineup.

Man United switch to a 3-4-3 and have left Martial, Greenwood and Pogba on the bench as Solskjaer switches his team around.
