Blues and United to ring changes

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez is expected to shuffle his pack once again when the Blues face Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter-final replay at Stamford Bridge on Easter Monday.
The Spaniard made seven changes to his starting line-up ahead of their 2-1 defeat at Southampton on Saturday and will look to rotate once more with one eye on the Europa League tie with Rubin Kazan on Thursday.
Juan Mata is likely to return after missing the loss at Southampton through illness but Benitez revealed defender Gary Cahill (knee) is still a major doubt.
Rafael (groin) looks sure to miss out for Manchester United after picking up a knock in Saturday’s 1-0 win at Sunderland.
Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Ryan Giggs were all rested at the weekend with the cup tie in mind, and Patrice Evra can also expect a recall.
Teams:
Chelsea (from): Cech, Turnbull, Hilario, Ivanovic, Ferreira, Cole, Bertrand, Luiz, Terry, Azpilicueta, Ramires, Oscar, Mata, Benayoun, Mikel, Moses, Lampard, Hazard, Marin, Torres, Ake, Ba.
Manchester United (from): De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Rafael, Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Buttner, Giggs, Valencia, Scholes, Carrick, Cleverley, Anderson, Young, Kagawa, Nani, Welbeck, Rooney, Hernandez, Van Persie.
