Chelsea seeks a trophy in Frank Lampard’s first season in charge and could move one step closer to that with a win against Manchester United in this weekend’s FA Cup semifinals.
The Blues are up to third place in the Premier League table, but now turn their attention towards the Red Devils on Sunday. Christian Pulisic set up the only goal in Chelsea’s 1-0 midweek win over Norwich City, continuing a good run of form since the resumption of play. Pulisic has yet to taste victory over the Red Devils this season, losing in both league play and the EFL Cup. The 21-year-old has returned with a vengeance though from an adductor injury, scoring three goals, adding one assist, and winning one penalty kick opportunity. Should the Blues win on Sunday, they will face either Manchester City or Arsenal in August’s FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.
Elsewhere, Tim Ream and Fulham face Sheffield Wednesday at Craven Cottage looking to rebound from a midweek draw. Antonee Robinson and Wigan Athletic take on Charlton Athletic after a monster midweek victory while Duane Holmes and Derby County take on league leaders Leeds United. Romain Gall could see a start for Norwegian side Stabaek after playing 20 minutes off the bench on Thursday.
