Match: Chelsea vs Manchester United
Competition: England – FA Cup Final
Time / Date: 19:15h / 19 May 2018
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Expect an exciting match for FA Cup in the capital of the legendary Wembley stadium, a two-titled racer and last chance for them to win something this season.
On the back of long seasons, both sides suffered embarrassing away defeats to newly-promoted Premier League clubs. Those defeats aside, there is nothing to separate the sides in terms of form, with both returning a record of W2, D2, L1, from their last five games.
Finals aside, modern times have been marginally kinder to Chelsea, with the Blues winning three ties and drawing once against United since their last FA Cup defeat to the Red Devils, way back in March 1999. Furthermore, if the recent Premier League record between the sides is also brought into play, there is little to separate the sides. Each has won its home fixture against the other in the last two seasons.
Danny Drinkwater (Calf strain)
Romelu Lukaku (Malleolar injury), Marouane Fellaini (Muscle Injury)
This will be the third FA Cup final between the sides in history, with each club winning one final apiece. Back in 1994, United beat Chelsea 4-0 to complete a cup double, and 13 years later, Chelsea won 1-0 in extra-time to win the first-ever final at the new Wembley Stadium.
Mourinho gives a rest to his star goalkeeper in last game, but his problem is not the defence but his striker Lukaku is out for this game.
United to lift the trophy for me is the best choice here. Since we know very good both managers are tactically defensive minded and taking in count that they played FA Cup final and one of them will go home without a trophy – Under 2.5 Match Goals looking perfect choice for this game
