Prediction Time – Paul Merson predicts Chelsea vs Man United

CHELSEA will have no problem beating Manchester United in the FA Cup on Monday.

That’s according to Paul Merson who believes the Blues will dominate Jose Mourinho’s side.

United face a long trip back from Russia after their Europa League clash with Rostov this evening.

And Merson thinks that will have an impact on the Red Devils as they prepare for the FA Cup quarter-final.

He told Sky Sports: “This is Manchester United’s big test!

“This will show us how far they’ve come since that 4-0 defeat to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier league.

“Since that game United have lost just two games from 30 matches in all competitions but they haven’t really beaten anybody. This is a big test for United.

“They will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and he’s Man Utd at the moment. He’s carried the team.

“They will also be getting back late from Russia after their Europa League game and they have to deal with the poor pitch out there.

“I don’t see anything but a Chelsea win. I can’t see United getting a result at all.”

The showdown between Chelsea and United kicks off at 7.45pm on Monday evening.
