FA Cup

Four reasons why Manchester United will defeat Chelsea in the FA cup semifinal at Wembley. (Opinion)

Manchester United take on Chelsea at the Wembley stadium on Sunday in the FA cup semifinals. United have been in good form since signing Portuguese midfielder Bruno Fernandes in January. In fact they haven't lost a match since the midfielder joined and they are a 19 games unbeaten run across all competitions, scoring 50 goals and conceding just 8 goals in that time.

Here are three reasons why Manchester United will defeat Chelsea in that clash.

1). United are stronger defensively than Chelsea: When people tell you to prove this point, point to the fact that Chelsea have let in the most goals of the top 10 teams in the premier league this season. The signing of Wan Bissaka and Maguire has really helped Manchester United concede lesser goals than the squad that shipped in goals terribly last season.

2). The attacking trio of Greenwood, Martial, Rashford, seems unstoppable right now: combining to score 60 goals this season in all competitions should really tell you what a threat they are to any defence in the league, especially when you consider Chelsea aren't even strong defensively.

3). The possible absence of Ngolo Kante: with Ngolo Kante, you have a midfielder that can cut out opponents key passes and launch attacks for his team. But after Lampard ruled out Kante for this clash, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes will be licking their lips at this development.

4). Ole's Favorite top six opponent: since taking up the Manchester United job, Ole Gunnar has faced Chelsea five times in all competitions, beating them in four occasions and drawing one with an aggregate score of 11-3.
