This FA Cup preview sees the final two matches from the Quarter Finals covered, with both live on BBC One.

The first match sees Chelsea take on Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, in what is undoubtedly the tie of the round.

Chelsea have been in exceptional form and come into the game on the back of three straight wins. They are top of the Premier League and are looking to complete a league and cup double in Conte's first season.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping for a far happier return than the October visit. His side were 1-0 down inside 34 seconds in that match and he will be hoping his charges can win this match and go on to secure a cup double or treble in his first season.

Diego Costa (50) doubled Chelsea's advantage just five minutes after the restart, to give the Hammers a mountain to climb.

Manuel Lanzini (90+2) scored what proved to be little more than a consolation goal for West Ham to make it 2-1.

Aleksandr Bukharov (53) levelled the scoring for Rostov, with an exceptional finish to give the hosts parity.

The main headline going into the match was the state of the pitch, with Mourinho less than happy at the quality available to his side.

United Back To Back Draws

Manchester United have been on an excellent run since the Chelsea defeat, they have lost just once during that period.

The second match sees Tottenham take on Millwall at White Hart Lane, in a match that will hopefully be noted more for the on field than off field battles.

Tottenham go into the match in scintillating form, as does the man below Harry Kane. He scored another two goals in the 3-2 triumph over Everton and will be looking to fire Tottenham to their first piece of silverware under Mauricio Pochettino.

Millwall will be looking to continue their FA Cup fairytale, they have so far knocked out Watford and Leicester at the Den. They will find this match a bit harder though, with Tottenham a step up in class and the away scenario will be the first of this FA Cup campaign as well.
