CHE vs MUN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Chelsea face a familiar foe in the FA Cup 5th round match as Manchester United visit the Stamford Bridge, on Monday night in London.
Despite losing significant grounds in the title race in the Premier League, Chelsea are very much in the race to win three other trophies. They are in the 5th round of the FA Cup, in the final of League Cup, while the Europa League round-of-32 tie is almost over.

But still, the manager Maurizio Sarri is coming under immense pressure these days and many believe another 6-0 like result against big teams could end up the Italian’s reign in England.
That’s why this game is of paramount importance for him, and for the whole Chelse squad who must still be reeling after that chastening experience at the Etihad Stadium. A win against the direct rivals can certainly alleviate the pain.
Manchester United meanwhile have been flying high under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. From nowhere, the Red Devils have come into the picture as a valid candidate for a top-four place, and are sitting at 4th as things stand in the Premier League.
But United did suffer their first setback under him as PSG won 0-2 at Old Trafford, which has all but ended Red Devils’ hopes of making into the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The FA Cup is a realistic target for Ole to win his first ever trophy as a manager in England, while a Champions League the first target.
