Solskjaer 'cannot wait' to face Chelsea in FA Cup semi-finals

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking forward to their FA Cup semi-final clash against Chelsea after the two sides were paired during Sunday's draw. 

The Reds were the first team to qualify for the semis following their hard-fought 2-1 win over Norwich City on Saturday, with the Blues joining them on Sunday courtesy of a 1-0 win over Leceister.

This will be the fourth successive FA Cup campaign in which the two sides clash, and it gets even more interesting to know it will be the fourth meeting this season in three different competitions. 

Solskjaer has won all matches against Frank Lampard and will relish the chance to pick a fourth successive win. 

“We’ve had lots of games at Wembley against them and, of course, we’ve had quite a few cup games against them in the last couple of seasons as well,” Ole told MUTV, ahead of Tuesday's Premier League clash at Brighton & Hove Albion.

“They’re a team that will know a lot about us and they’re a team we know a lot about too. We’re looking forward to being at Wembley, any team who you draw there would be a top team anyway. I can’t wait, it’s been a while.”

This will be the 17th time the clubs have met in the FA Cup, with United boasting a superior win record with nine while the Blues have won on five occasions and there have been two draws.
