Sometimes the FA Cup gives us a chance to see teams in the lower leagues rise up and challenge the top dogs, like fans saw this weekend at Arsenal. Other times, like on Monday, the Cup will dump a great rivalry right into the middle of the schedule. Thank you, FA Cup.
Monday will mark the 176th meeting between two of England’s most popular teams, as United visit Chelsea for a spot in the FA Cup semifinals. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 11 games against United, and haven’t been beaten by the Red Devils since 2012.
Today’s match kicks off on Fox Sports 1 at 3:45 p.m. Eastern. Looking for a live stream of today’s match? Whether you’re at home or only have your phone, there are options available.
