How to watch and live stream Chelsea v Manchester United’s FA Cup match

Everything you need to know about the fifth-round match between the Premier League giants

Published: Monday, 18th February 2019 at 7:30 pm

The FA Cup fifth round will see Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea take on a revived Manchester United.


A repeat of last year’s final, the bout should feel far removed from the sides’ last meeting, a 2-2 draw – the match that saw a fiery stand-off with ex-manager Jose Mourinho and the Chelsea bench. With new manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, United appear to be going from strength to strength, making ground in the Premier League, despite a disappointing result in the Champions League against PSV.

However, recent history is on Chelsea’s side. The blues have triumphed in each of their last four FA matches against United, including the final last season. In fact, if Chelsea win, they’ll be the first team ever to eliminate the Red Devils in five consecutive FA Cup meetings.
