Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge for the marquee FA Cup quarterfinal match, and it is all set to be a battle of the back-threes.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte sticks with his strongest eleven, with Nemanja Matic giving N’Golo Kante company in midfield, and Willian and Eden Hazard lining up either side of Diego Costa. As usual, Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta combine in the back-three.

Meanwhile, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has continued with a similar setup that he implemented in the midweek game against FC Rostov in the Europa League, with Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo lining up in a back-three.

The Manchester United boss has made four changes from the previous match, with Marcus Rashford leading the attack and Matteo Darmian deployed as the left wingback.
