Reece James and Mason Mount are among the players recalled as Chelsea prepare to lock horns with Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final.

Frank Lampard has made three changes to the team that started in the 1-0 win over Norwich City in the Premier League earlier this week as Chelsea get set to lock horns with Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final. The first shuffle comes in goal, with Willy Caballero coming into the side in place of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

In front of Caballero, Lampard has reverted to a 3-4-3 formation, with captain Cesar Azpilicueta moving into the back-three. The Chelsea captain has Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger for company in the three-man central defensive unit. The second change sees Reece James return.

James starts as the right wing-back, with Marcos Alonso deployed on the opposite flank. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is the man to make way for James, meaning Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic form the midfield double pivot.

The final shuffle in the Chelsea starting lineup comes in the final third, as Mason Mount replaces Christian Pulisic. Mount starts on the left wing, with Willian on the right while Olivier Giroud leads the line against Manchester United.

Chelsea Starting Lineup: Caballero, James, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Zouma, Alonso, Jorginho, Kovacic, Willian, Giroud, Mount
