Sports Mole previews the FA Cup quarter-final replay between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea host Manchester United on Monday with both sides bidding to progress through to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

The first match ended in a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford, and with the winner of the clash at Stamford Bridge facing Manchester City in the last four, both teams will be eager to make it through to a semi-final showdown at Wembley.

Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez will continue to rotate his starting lineup, with John Terry, Gary Cahill and John Obi Mikel all in contention to play.

With the Premier League title race as good as over, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson could opt to play his senior players against the Blues.

That could see Wayne Rooney partner Robin van Persie in attack, while Ashley Young could feature as he continues his comeback from injury.
