Manchester United can earn a draw in epic FA Cup clash with Chelsea

Ten points clear at the top of the Premier League, Chelsea will be hoping to continue their fine season by booking their place in the FA Cup semi-finals, but Antonio Conte's men will face a stiff test on Monday night as they welcome a Manchester United side to Stamford Bridge, who are on a ten-match unbeaten run, and are looking to add another trophy to this season's roll of honour.

  • Manchester United have not beaten Chelsea in 11 matches
  • Chelsea thrashed Manchester United 4-0 earlier in the season
  • Manchester United are unbeaten in ten matches in all competitions

Back The Draw In Heavyweight Clash

In October Jose Mourinho returned to Stamford Bridge, but the former Blues boss suffered a miserable 4-0 defeat with his Manchester United side in the Premier League. So, he will be eager to reverse that form around in this mouth-watering FA Cup clash, but with Chelsea in such top form then it's no surprise to see them installed as the 17/20 favourites with bet365 to win this clash.

A 2-1 win over West Ham United in their last match, Chelsea continue to flourish under Conte, and it will be a huge turn of events should they not lift the Premier League title, but the Blues will have their sights on bagging the double this season, and many punters will opt to stick with a home win.

However, since that 4-0 drubbing five months ago, Manchester United have turned a corner and they have already bagged some silverware having beaten Southampton 3-2 in the EFL Trophy last month, and the Red Devils will head to the capital thinking they can cause an upset, and a United win is 7/2 with Betfair Sportsbook.

But, United have not beaten Chelsea since the 2012/2013 season, stretching back twelve matches, so you have to feel that they may struggle to bag the win, so the value has to be on backing a draw at 11/4 with bet365, as Mourinho has turned United into a very tough side to beat, and it could well be a very cagey affair from the outset, so parity after 90 minutes is the way to go.
Match Odds:

Goals To Be Sparse At The Bridge

Two of the last seven matches between Chelsea and Manchester United have ended in a goalless draw, as they both cancel each other out defensively, and are not willing to throw men forward to try and win the game, so you have to feel that the 17/2 on offer with Betfair Sportsbook for this match to finish 0-0 is worth a nibble.

Nevertheless, the more attractive punt is for the game to be without a goal at half-time, and at 7/4 with Paddy Power for both teams to draw a blank in the first 45 minutes is a superb bet in what is set to be a game that will see United head to the capital aiming for a draw and a replay at Old Trafford.

Goalkeepers To Sparkle On Monday Night

We have often seen the goalkeepers take prominent positions in these sort of matches, and Monday night's clash could be very similar and it could be worth having a flutter on one of the goalkeepers to be named man of the match, and there are some tasty prices out there for this bet.

Sergio Romero could well replace David De Gea in goal for United, as he did in the last round, and Paddy Power are offering 20/1 about a Manchester United goalkeeper being named man of the match, while the 25/1 on offer with the same for the Chelsea goalkeeper being named man of the match could be worth a saver in what should be a tight affair to round off the quarter-finals of the FA Cup..
