Chelsea v Man Utd preview

31 March 2013 02:21
Interim Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is expected to shuffle his pack once again on Monday for an FA Cup quarter-final replay with Manchester United. The Spaniard made seven changes to his starting line-up ahead of their 2-1 defeat at Southampton on Saturday and will look to rotate once more with one eye on the Europa League tie with Rubin Kazan on Thursday. Juan Mata is likely to return after missing the loss at Southampton through illness but Benitez revealed defender Gary Cahill (knee) is still a major doubt. Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is also set to ring the changes for the cup clash. Rafael (groin) looks sure to miss out after picking up a knock during the 1-0 win at Sunderland. Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Ryan Giggs were all rested at the weekend with the cup tie in mind, and Patrice Evra can also expect a recall.
