Chelsea have a huge FA Cup semi-final clash on Sunday evening against an in-form Manchester United side.

Manchester United are on an unbeaten run for the past 19 games and are the most in-form side in the Premier League, with a front three that has scored more goals than Liverpool’s formidable trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Chelsea head into this game as underdogs, as the Blues have lost three times to United this season, scoring one goal in the process and conceding eight times.

Despite the threat posed by Manchester United, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has urged his side to be confident for this game.

“We know they’re playing well,” Lampard said in his press conference.

“They have a very potent front three, probably the most potent front three in the country on pure numbers anyway and obviously [Bruno] Fernandes has made a huge difference since arriving in January.

“You see the strength that’s brought to their team with individual quality but we know that. We have to be confident in ourselves, deal with their threats and worry about us as well.”
