Good news for Chelsea as Manchester United won't be with FOUR of their defenders on Sunday

Chelsea and Manchester United are hoping to clinch a trophy before the end of the season. Both team will clash in the FA cup semi-final while the winner will face the winner between Manchester City and Arsenal

Both team have been fighting for the Champions league spot in recent weeks and it seems they will both have to wait till the end of the season to know which of them gets the spot or if Leicester drops they both can qualify.

Chelsea will be without their star midfielder Kante for the crucial match, but the team will be happy to know that 4 of Manchester United United won't be available for them.

Left back Luke Shaw will definitely not play with injury picked up during Southampton game, Solskjear has already confirmed this. His alternative Bradon Williams is also very likely not to play as he is just recovering.

"I don't think Luke's gonna make it no, he'll be out," Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference, as reported by Manchester Evening News . "Brandon will hopefully be able to train today and be available."

Other defenders that will be unavailable are Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe who are both out with long term injuries.

Should Williams be deemed not fit for the game, Timothy Fosu-Mensah or Diogo Dalot could step into the left-back role for the game.
