Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he is confident to face Chelsea in the FA Cup semifinal after an excellent record this season.

The match will take place on July 18 at Wembley and it will be the fourth consecutive battle between the two sides in the competition.

Speaking about the draw, Solskjaer believes the two teams know each other really well.

The manager told MUTV: “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

“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.”

The former Cardiff City manager is also confident about another battle with Frank Lampard, considering the records against Chelsea this season.

“Of course, we are (confident),” he said.

“One, we’ve played quite a few good games against them lately and we know that we’re competitive and have done really well against them.

“And two, we have some really good momentum; we are building that and we’re in good form.”

This will be the fourth meeting between Chelsea and Manchester United in all competitions this season with Solskjaer’s men winning the previous three games.

United handed Chelsea a 4-0 defeat in their Premier League opening match before collecting a couple more wins at Stamford Bridge; 2-1 in the Carabao Cup and 2-0 in the league in February.

However, the last time they faced each other at Wembley, the Blues came out on top as they beat United 1-0 in the 2017-18 FA Cup final.
