Chelsea will lock horns with Manchester United in their FA Cup replay on Easter

Chelsea will lock horns with Manchester United in their FA Cup replay on Easter

Both clubs have agreed to the new date after Chelsea fought back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Kick-off at Stamford Bridge will be at 12.30pm, and the winners will meet Manchester City at Wembley in the last four.

Chelsea's potential Europa League commitments and the forthcoming break for World Cup qualifiers meant there was no room to schedule the replay in midweek.

The Londoners' Premier League game against Southampton, originally scheduled for Easter Sunday, has been brought forward to the Saturday and will not now be live on Sky Sports.

f I were Manuel Pellegrini I would keep quiet and hope the Board didn't notice City not winning anything. If he isn't sacked I'd be astonished.
