Chelsea take on Manchester United in a battle for the place in the FA Cup quarter-finals. Maurizio Sarri needs his Chelsea team to come out with a victory at all costs, as his managerial position is in grave danger after the heavy loss against Manchester City. Manchester United come on the back of a defeat against PSG in the Champions League and this was the first loss for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since he was appointed as the United boss. However, this game exposed Solskjaer and his shortcomings when it comes to big matches, as it was yet another poor performance from United in a Champions League game under his regime.
A major reason behind Chelsea’s confidence will be home advantage, as the blues have lost only once in 21 matches at home. The team has also been able to claim five consecutive victories at home. The likes of Eden Hazard seem to come alive when playing at Stamford Bridge and it is a sharp contrast to their away form, which has seen the team concede defeat in all of the away games in 2019.
