Chelsea have been drawn against Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

FA Cup holders Chelsea beat Nottingham Forest 2-0 at home to advance to the fourth round of the competition, and duly swatted aside Sheffield Wednesday with a 3-0 Stamford Bridge victory at thr weekend to reach the last-16 of the competition.

Willian struck two goals against Wednesday, with Callum Hudson-Odoi also netting what could be his final Chelsea goal amid transfer interest from Bayern Munich.

Chelsea are looking to defend the trophy they won at Wembley last season, having beaten Manchester United 1-0 in the final courtesy of an Eden Hazard penalty.

Maurizio Sarri is yet to win any silverware in his managerial career, but has a great opportunity to change that this season with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham already eliminated.

The Blues have won the FA Cup eight times in their history, with six of those successes coming since the turn of the century.
