Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Manchester United

Sports Mole looks at the latest injury and suspension news for Chelsea ahead of Monday's FA Cup fifth-round tie with Manchester United.

Chelsea play host to Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday night having returned to winning ways in the Europa League.

The Blues went into the first leg of their last-32 tie with Malmo having suffered a 6-0 defeat at Manchester City, and it left Maurizio Sarri under pressure ahead of the trip to Sweden.

However, goals from Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud secured a 2-1 victory for the West Londoners ahead of a hectic week which includes three high-profile fixtures.

The return leg with Malmo follows three days after the showdown with United, before Chelsea take on Man City in the EFL Cup final on Sunday.

Here, Sports Mole looks at Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their encounter with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
