Feels a bit like history repeating itself, doesn't it? Chelsea and Manchester United met in the FA Cup last year as well – it was the final then and the fifth round now. It should be a cracker of a tie, with United seeking to get revenge for the defeat they suffered last season. And the great news is that it's on free-to-air TV in the UK. We'll tell you how to get a Chelsea vs Man United live stream wherever you are.
It was Eden Hazard's penalty that divided Chelsea and Man U in last year's 1-0 FA Cup Final, and he's likely to be one of the stars of the show today at Stamford Bridge, too. But other than that, so much has changed since last May.
Both clubs have a new manager for a start. Enigmatic Maurizio Sarri is under pressure at Stamford Bridge, failing to get his team to fire on all cylinders. A 6-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City capped a miserable few weeks, and a big FA Cup tie victory could be just what he needs to get their Premier League season back on track.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over just before Christmas after José Mourinho was finally given his marching orders. It's been an incredible couple of months, with a resurgent United winning 10 of their last 12 games. His prolific start to his time as manager has helped to get the best out of the likes of Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford and earn them a place back in the league's top four.
Considering their league positions, it feels like this year's FA Cup is as important as ever to Chelsea and Manchester United. Below we're going to talk you through the best ways to watch the FA Cup action in the UK and the rest of the world so you can ensure you can easily live stream the match.
