Manchester United vs. Chelsea, 2013 FA Cup: Preview and TV schedule

Clive Rose

Manchester United face Chelsea as the Red Devils bid to win the double and the Blues face up to one of their two remaining hopes for silverware.

Update - Match Report: Manchester United 2-2 Chelsea, final score.

Manchester United will look to get over their European disappointment by taking on Chelsea at Old Trafford in the FA Cup.

The Red Devils are still in contention for the double, and will be going all-out for victory, with Chelsea also desperate to remain in one of two competitions in which they still stand a chance of silverware. The Blues knocked United out of the League Cup earlier in the season in a bonkers 5-4 epic, although both sides had rested players, and will be at full strength for this encounter.

United have few injury problems but the Wayne Rooney saga continues to boil and all eyes will be fixed to see whether he starts the match. With or without him, however, United are still just as dangerous and Chelsea will need to put their poor form behind them to stand any chance of a win.
