Solskjaer’s message for the fans Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he wants to send the 5,000 travelling fans home happy tonight

A big chance for Lukaku
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken to BBC Sport ahead of kick-off.

“It’s an important game, it’s a trophy that we can challenge for. It is one of the toughest opponents we could have but we have shown over the years that it’s a cup game that will be tight.

“It is a big chance for Romelu Lukaku to start, he hasn’t started too many games. I hope for a big performance from him and Juan Mata.

“We have to defend well against Chelsea but we want to impose ourselves and control the tempo of the game.”
Solskjaer’s message for the fans
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he wants to send the 5,000 travelling fans home happy tonight.

He said:

“The fans have helped us through to this round – they’ve been fantastic. We’ve won the last six away games so hopefully a nice trip home to Manchester tonight.”

Strong Chelsea line up
There’s hardly any let up from Sarri with his own selection. Bar Barkley and Pedro, everyone is an undisputed first-teamer and Chelsea must fancy their chances tonight, given the line-ups. As influential as Mata was here in October it was Martial who did the damage. Chelsea also have speedy back-ups in Hudson-Odoi and Willian, should the game extend to 120 minutes.
