It is the absolute top game of the previous FA Cup season. On Monday night, Stamford Bridge will re-launch the 2018 final. The Chelsea Football Club awaits the English record champions Manchester United. At that time, Chelsea, in Antonio Contes last game as coach of the Blues, prevailed 1-0. On Monday, the Blues have the opportunity to be the first team ever to defeat Man United in five consecutive FA Cup pairings. If this succeeds, Chelsea would be in the quarter-finals for the fourth consecutive year. In the past two seasons, it was then each time to the finals. The shock over the 0-6 humiliation at Manchester City in the past Premier League weekend is all in the Blues still in the bone, but succeeded during the week at least a scant success in the Europa League round in the Swedish Malmö.
Football Betting Prediction Chelsea vs Manchester United
Manchester United, meanwhile, suffered a week-long failure in the premier class. For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer it was the first defeat since the takeover of Jose Mourinho against the dismissed to Kylian Mbappe Gala offensive Paris Saint Germain. In the FA Cup, Man United was able to prevail ten times against the reigning champions, more often than any other team. Last time this succeeded in the season 2011/12 against city rivals Man City. The chances of eliminating a defending champion again are not bad for the Red Devils at Chelsea vs. Manchester United.
Chelsea – Statistics & Current Form
Blues coach Maurizio Sarri remains a coach on call since last weekend’s record-breaking Manchester City midfielder’s 6-0 swat. For Chelsea, it was the worst ever failure in the Premier League. Already in the away game before in Bournemouth, the Blues had conceded the highest defeat since September 1996 (1-5 against Liverpool). The blues lost their last win in April 1991 with 0: 7 at Nottingham Forest. And even longer ago, Chelsea had to concede at least four goals in a stalemate twice in a row (December 1990). Worrying numbers, as well as the four goals against Guardiolas Citizens before the break. With Antonio Conte, those responsible for Roman Abramovich and his right-hand man, Marina Granovskaia, put down a coach who won the league title in the first year and was able to say goodbye to the FA Cup last season despite all the quarrels.
Under Sarri, spectacular offensive football should be presented to the Chelsea Annex. After seven months only remains to note that Sarri, arguably the biggest coach misunderstanding of the blues since the Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari. Predictable as tactically predictable by players in erroneous positions and seemingly resistant to advocacy, Chelsea quickly became the new arsenal that Wenger knew in recent years. Actually, Chelsea wanted to move closer to the Italians Manchester City and Liverpool. Currently, the opposite is the case. Sarri keeps making the old mistakes again and again. The opponents put Jorginho as a ball distributor and Chelsea lack the ideas. Accordingly, we consider a positive outcome of the blues on Monday night unlikely. We would recommend to Chelsea vs Manchester United the tip on the Red Devils. Despite Gonzalo Higuain Oliver Giroud could be an interesting alternative for Monday, after all, the Frenchman was directly involved in his 28 FA Cup games at 23 goals (15 goals, eight episodes) and thus every 73 minutes. Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Gary Cahill and Danny Drinkwater are in doubt.

Manchester United – Statistics & Current Form
The first Real Reality Check for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer called the Champions League knockout rounds against Paris went really hard. The ripped-off French series champion clearly showed the Red Devils the limits, making it his first defeat as a Man United coach for the Norwegian. Previously, Solskjaer won ten of his eleven games and drew once. With this series, the Red Devils climbed to a Champions League place, which was at the dismissal of Jose Mourinho eleven points away. Accordingly, the performance of the Norwegian, the team to have brought back on track, not high enough to rate. So far, each game of Solskjaers has been chosen as a test of endurance. Will Solskjaer win his first game? Will Solskjaer win his first home game? Will Solskjaer win against a top team? On Monday, the question is whether Solskjaer can win a title, because the only realistic chance to offer the FA Cup.
Manchester United could reach the quarter-finals in the oldest cup competition in the world for the fifth consecutive time. Chelsea’s chances against Manchester United are good, according to our prediction. The Red Devils could also advance to the first team since 1998/99, which eliminates Arsenal and Chelsea in the same FA Cup season. Even then it was the Red Devils who succeeded. The last time both opponents were able to beat away in a cup season was Millwall in the 1994-95 season. With a cup win at the end of the season, Man United could match Arsenal in terms of title. The Gunners won the FA Cup 13 times. In the FA Cup from the beginning to play probably due to the recent injury of Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial of the Belgian Romelu Lukaku.
