The FA Cup replay between Chelsea and Manchester United will take place at 12.30pm at Stamford Bridge on Monday April 1, the FA has finally confirmed.

The two sides drew the initial game 2-2 at Old Trafford last Sunday, but the Blues' hectic schedule has greatly disrupted their season as well as plans to arrange the re-staged quarter-final.

With the FA Cup clash taking place on the Monday, Chelsea's Premier League game at Southampton - which had been due to take place on Sunday March 31 - will now be moved forward, kicking off at 3pm on the Saturday. United will take on Sunderland in the league on March 30, as planned.

Meanwhile, United have announced that their league match with West Ham United, which had been due to be played March 9, has been scheduled for Wednesday April 17 at 7.45pm.
