Owing to the injury worries buffeting the Red Devils, the home side will surely fancy their chances in this clash

Chelsea will be counting on their impressive record at Stamford Bridge against Manchester United when the two clash in the fifth-round of the FA Cup on Monday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to do without two key players for this clash which will definitely hamper United’s chances of coming out of this clash with the desired result.

Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard have been integral in the Red Devils’ sublime resurgence under the caretaker boss and will both miss the game to injuries sustained in Champions League match against PSG.

And given how the team capitulated in the absence of the duo in the second half of that UCL tie against Les Parisiens, Chelsea, who have been impressive on this ground and in this competition against Solskjaer’s men will be fancying their chances on Monday night.

For context, Manchester United have lost 13 of their last 22 away games at Chelsea (W2, D7), failing to win any of their last nine.

Each of the last 16 meetings between these two has failed to produce more than four goals. Therefore, punters can expect Maurizio Sarri’s men to avoid defeat on their turf, with goals in the clash not exceeding four.

It’s a very probable outcome that’s being priced at odds of (1.44) with NairaBet.

Chelsea could become the first team to eliminate Manchester United in five consecutive FA Cup meetings with a win in this clash at (2.05) odds with the same betting outfit.

However, the Red Devils have eliminated FA Cup holders 10 times, more than any other side in the competition’s history. They are (3.65) odds with NairaBet to extend the record to 11 against the current champions.

The last time both sides met on this ground, it ended in a two-all draw. Another stalemate here at the end of regulation time is priced at odds of (3.65).
