Team News: Rashford starts! Mourinho mind games worked?

Manchester United go head to head with Antonio Conte’s Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Emirates FA Cup this evening. United have faced Chelsea eleven times since they last beat them, earning five draws and six defeats in those matches, which is something United will be looking to break this evening, especially after the 4-0 capitulation which happened there back in October, the last defeat for United in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho is strikerless according to the confirmed squad which travelled to London on Sunday, but there are rumours aplenty which suggest otherwise. Will Mourinho and United be getting the last laugh over Chelsea, or will the team look towards the UEFA Europa League and the Premier League in order to earn a place in the UEFA Champions League next season, letting the FA Cup drift away and be battled for between Manchester City, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and possibly Chelsea this season?

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Rojo, Darmian;

Herrera, Pogba, Young;

Mkhitaryan;

Rashford

Substitutes:

Romero; Bailly, Blind; Mata, Lingard, Carrick, Fellaini

Chelsea:

Courtois;

Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill;

Moses, Matic, Kante, Alonso;

Willian, Costa, Hazard

Substitutes:

Begovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Pedro, Batshuayi, Terry, Chalobah

United need to show something against this Chelsea side, who are running away with the Premier League title just like Leicester City did last season. United have not beaten Chelsea in eleven matches, the last win in 2012. Six defeats and five draws see United looking for more this evening. Can Jose Mourinho get revenge for a 4-0 thrashing just over three months ago, or will United be left wondering what could have been once again?
