Chelsea vs Manchester United FA CUP Expected Line UP

Two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs lock horns as they attempt to get their hands on one of the most prestigious trophies in English football.

The curtain comes down on the English season on Saturday at Wembley Stadium as Manchester United and Chelsea collide in the 2018 FA Cup final.

United are chasing a record-equalling 13th title, which would put them level with Arsenal as the most successful team in the competition’s history, while Chelsea, who last won the FA Cup in 2012, will attempt to lift the vaunted trophy for the eighth time in their history.

The Blues overcame Southampton in the semi-final to bookend their season with a trip to England’s famous ‘Home of Football’ and they will be particularly desperate to win having suffered a bitter defeat to London rivals Arsenal in the final last season.

The Red Devils, meanwhile, saw off Tottenham in the other semi-final and it is a prime opportunity for Jose Mourinho, who last won the competition while at the helm of Chelsea in 2006, to add another piece of silverware to his collection since taking the reins at Old Trafford.
