3 thoughts: Star-studded semis on the cards for FA Cup”

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insisted his side had achieved as much as they possibly could in the circumstances after drawing with mid-table Russian outfit FC Rostov in their Europa League last-16 clash.

Conte, who has a fully-fit squad for Monday's quarter-final, refused to reveal whether John Terry would start what could be his final ever cup tie at Stamford Bridge.

A testament to the fantastic job that Conte has done at Stamford Bridge is their 10-point lead at the top, a remarkable turnaround considering they sacked Mourinho 14 months ago with the club hovering above the relegation zone. "Hopefully we can keep everyone fit like we have been managing to do this season, and we'll be prepared". "Monday we don't go with a Nicky Butt team", he said.

However, despite vowing not to play for another English side, The Times claims that Terry is now ready to consider offers from Premier League sides after strong interest in January. It's not Chelsea's fault that we'll play on Monday. With Ronald Koeman's side now eight points off the top four, the former Manchester United player's honest assessment does not seem too wide of the mark.

While Mourinho admits things will be hard in Ibrahimovic's absence, the United boss is determined to face his former club "with everything we have". We can not go there with a [Reserve] team, we'll try to manage it within our squad and get a good team to compete with them. "I have a couple of ones in the garage", Hazard told Chelsea TV.

"We have three days and we have to travel". All six of these teams will most likely have European football as they are the current top six in the Premier League. "I can't see United getting a result at all".
