Manchester United managed to beat out Blackburn Rovers in a tough encounter, with Jose Mourinho’s side finishing as 2-1 winners at Ewood Park. Just twenty minutes later, the quarter-final draw was made and it hasn’t been kind to us…
The self-proclaimed Special One will be heading to his old stomping ground Stamford Bridge. Yes, Manchester United have been drawn away to Chelsea. The club confirmed the news on their Twitter account moments after the draw was made, and the Red Devils will surely be seeking revenge.

Last time United went to Stamford Bridge they got destroyed 4-0, in what was definitely the hardest loss of the season so far. Cup ties are always so unpredictable, and it is, without doubt, the most attractive tie of the round.
Can Manchester United do the business? Of course they can, but it won’t be easy. Antonio Conte has his team playing some excellent stuff, but we’re looking pretty handy ourselves right now.
