How Chelsea could line up against Manchester United

Sports Mole looks at how Chelsea could line up for Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United at Wembley.

Chelsea will be looking to reach a third FA Cup final in the last four seasons when they face Manchester United in the semi-finals at Wembley on Sunday.

The Blues are embroiled in a fascinating top-four race which includes opponents United, but they must put that on hold to focus on the cup in what is a repeat of the 2018 and 2007 finals.

Chelsea come into the match off the back of a 1-0 victory over Norwich City on Tuesday night, keeping them third in the Premier League table.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Frank Lampard could set his side out at Wembley.

Chelsea perhaps have less need to rest players than United given that they have had two extra days to recover since their last Premier League outing, but Lampard will still have one eye on his side's final two top-flight games against Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Rotation is still therefore expected despite the importance of this game too, with the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi among those pushing for a recall to the starting XI.

Ross Barkley was the hero in the quarter-final with his third FA Cup goal of the season, and he could be rewarded with a start this time around.

N'Golo Kante and Billy Gilmour remain unavailable, though, leaving Jorginho as the standout choice to start in the holding midfield role once again.

Fikayo Tomori's return to fitness means that Lampard could name an entirely different back five for this match, with Reece James, Andreas Christensen and Emerson Palmieri all pushing for starts too.

Willy Caballero is also expected to come into the starting lineup in place of first-choice Kepa Arrizabalaga.
