However, Barnsley midfielder Stephen Dawson is questionable due to ankle problems. Barnsley manager David Flitcroft is confident that his Championship side stands a chance against City.

United vs Chelsea

It is the top game of the FA Cup quarter-final. United just lost to Real Madrid and will be hungry. Young are likely to replace Giggs. Ferguson also has to replace Phil Jones (ankle) and midfielder Paul Scholes (knee). Rooney is likely to start from the beginning after he was a substitute against Real.

Chelsea beat Middlesbrough (0:2) in the fifth round and Benitez is under pressure and needs victories.
