3 Reasons Why Chelsea Could Defeat Manchester United In The F.A Cup Semi Final

Chelsea would play Manchester United for the fourth time this season, in the F.A cup semi finals on Sunday, 19 June. 

This fixture will be a different game entirely to their previous meetings, as both team would be hoping to secure a spot in the finals of the competition, in a bid to win a silverware this season.

In this article, we will be looking at the 3 reasons why Chelsea could defeat Manchester United on Sunday, and Progress to the F.A cup finals.

1. Revenge

The Frank Lampard's boys has lost to the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side three times this season. The Chelsea players would take this game as a period to revenge the previous defeats that they have suffered in the hands of Manchester United this season.

The extra determination of not wanting to lose for the fourth time, at the hands of Manchester United this season, could serve as a motivation for Chelsea to spoil their unbeaten run.

2. Extra Two Days Of Resting

Chelsea had two extra days to rest, after they played their last Premier League game against Norwich City on Tuesday, 14 July, while Manchester United played a tough game against Crystal Palace, on Thursday 16 July.

The extra two days given to Chelsea to rest, could play to their advantage in defeating Manchester United on Sunday, 19 July. 

Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire, Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba all played full 90 minutes against Crystal Palace, and they are all still likely to start against Chelsea, within just three days of playing a tough game against Crystal Palace.

These players may be affected by fatigue, or might be burnt out against Chelsea, which would grant Chelsea the opportunity to defeat them.

3. Chelsea Only Hope Of Winning A Trouphy 

Although, Chelsea are still in the Champions League, but their chances of overturning the 3–0 first leg defeat against Bayern Munich are very slim.

The F.A cup could be the only hope for Chelsea to win a trouphy this season, and that could serve as an extra motivation for the Chelsea team, to defeat Manchester United, so as to Progress to the finals.

Manchester United still has other chance of winning silverware this season, as they are one of the favorites for the Europa League trouphy.
