Champions League qualification may be all important for both sides, but don’t expect either Frank Lampard or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to field weakened teams with the prospect of silverware on the horizon – even if United have had a couple of days less to prepare.

Man Utd will be seeking to keep up momentum as they remain unbeaten in 19 outings since late January, winning 13 of these in normal time.

In fact, their extra-time winner against Norwich in the previous round of this competition is the only occasion in their last seven where they’ve failed to score at least twice in 90 minutes.

Even limited to the best teams they’ve faced over this period (Man City, Wolves, Chelsea, Spurs and Sheffield Utd), they’ve won an impressive four out of six.

The Blues can point to a record of eight wins from 10 since March, though both defeats came away from Stamford Bridge, while the defence has registered just three shutouts in eight fixtures now.

Those were picked up against a Leicester side that made a poor restart to action, as well as relegated Norwich and a Watford side still battling the drop. Shipping three goals at both West Ham and Sheffield Utd must be of concern however, while even low-scorers Palace managed to hit two past Kepa Arrizabalaga.

United certainly have the attacking tools to give Chelsea problems. Indeed, their sustained form is all the more remarkable when considering Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford were absent for a large chunk of that run as they didn’t return until June.

The signing of Bruno Fernandes and the emergence of Mason Greenwood, as well as the successful returns of that injured duo, leaves us sceptical of Chelsea’s clean sheet prospects. Indeed, the Blues have conceded more league goals than any other top-half team this term.

Manchester United Draw No Bet

Having won four of six unbeaten clashes since the start of last season, United will point to recent head-to-heads to offer encouragement too, especially as they’ve won all three this term where Solskjaer and Lampard have met in the dugout.

Although the opening day 4-0 annihilation at Old Trafford shouldn’t be repeated here, United did win both their Carabao Cup trip to the Bridge as well as the reverse fixture in the league.

This clash will take place at Wembley, a familiar arena for both sides, so we wouldn’t put too much emphasis on the duo’s results away from Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge respectively.

However, when considering Man Utd’s lengthy unbeaten streak, their attacking prowess and Chelsea’s vulnerable rearguard, they appear worth siding with draw no bet at the prices.
