Manchester United vs Chelsea - FA Cup Preview
Published : 06 Mar 2013 16:16:23
With both teams having played European games this week and with United hoping to bounce back after a bitterly disappointing defeat to Real Madrid on Tuesday night Cup holders Chelsea verses Manchester United is surely going to be an enticing encounter at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United are the odds on bookies favorites and bet365 (as of writing) have the home side to win at odds of 1.8. but obviously being knocked out of the Champions League is surely going to be a confidence knock.
Chelsea on the other hand are in action Thursday night against Steaua Bucharest in the Europa league and with the Premier League title seemingly out of reach they only have the FA Cup and the Europa League as their hopes of silverware this season and the cup holders.
The tie should be all about the Manchester Club reasserting their dominance on domestic soil and considering they have only lost 3 times at home (CFR Cluj, Spurs & Real Madrid), should be the sure bet to beat a rather inconsistent Chelsea team.
The Exclusive video below runs down the facts about the 2 teams ahead of Sunday's game.
