Gallery: Recent FA Cup wins over Man United

After we were paired with Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round, we take a look back at some of our memorable recent wins over the Red Devils in the competition through a selection of images.

Chelsea will host Man United in the FA Cup fifth round in what will be the third consecutive meeting between the teams in the competition following last night's draw.

It's a fixture which always captures the imagination and, in the last four FA Cup meetings, the Blues have come out on top.

Here, we look back at those matches, which all ended 1-0 to Chelsea, starting with last season's FA Cup final.

It took an Eden Hazard penalty to separate the two sides at Wembley in last season's showpiece fixture. The Belgian raced on to a Cesc Fabregas pass before being brought down inside the box by Phil Jones.

The attacker dusted himself down, strode forward and calmly dispatched his kick to break the deadlock with what proved to be the winning goal.

Chelsea were FA Cup winners for the eighth time.

The last FA Cup tie between the sides at the Bridge, in 2016/17, was settled by a long-range N'Golo Kante strike.

The Frenchman had already scored against United earlier in the season, in the Premier League, and on this occasion his superb goal sent us through to the semi-finals.

Tottenham were beaten 4-2 in the last four, before we lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the final.

Demba Ba was the hero as we prevailed in a sixth-round replay at Stamford Bridge in 2013, the striker scoring the only goal of the game with a superb second-half volley.

In the initial game at Old Trafford, United had raced into a 2-0 lead before goals from Hazard and Ramires earned the Blues a deseved replay.

Back at the Bridge, there was little to choose between the sides once more until Ba stepped up to make the difference.

The first FA Cup final at the redeveloped Wembley in 2007 was a meeting between the two best teams in the country, who would meet again in the Champions League final a year later.

There were few clear-cut opportunities as the two defences came out on top, with the game eventually going to extra-time, and it was clear it would take something - or someone - special to prevent the game from going to penalties.

Enter Didier Drogba. With the clock ticking down, the Ivorian exchanged passes with Frank Lampard and poked the ball beyond Edwin van der Sar to win it for the Blues.

It was the first of four FA Cup final goal Drogba would score for the club, and one which went down in history.
