After comfortably easing into the fifth round of the FA Cup, courtesy of a 3-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday, in the fourth round, last night we waited anxiously for the draw to take place.

Perhaps the best thing we can say about what took place was that we were given a home draw.

Unfortunately, with there being very few Premier League clubs left in the draw, courtesy of some good old-fashioned cup shocks this weekend, somehow, Chelsea were drawn against probably the form team of the moment, Manchester United.

The tie is a repeat of the final, last May, where the two sides were only separated by a goal, from the penalty spot, by Eden Hazard,

The fixture, is, of course, the tie of the round and we’re pretty sure the two TV companies, BBC and BT Sport, that broadcast the live FA Cup ties, will be fighting to show this game.

But, would it be too much to hope the fixture isn’t switched to a Friday evening kick-off.

In our view, with Manchester United in such fine form, winning their last eight fixtures since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer replaced Jose Mourinho, it is a tie that could go either way.

But can Chelsea win it?

Of course, we can, it’ll be a packed Stamford Bridge, the players will be up for it and Chelsea have a habit of beating that team in red, do they not!
