Chelsea and Manchester United will face each other in the FA Cup final. Both the teams will look to win the game and end the season on a high.

Chelsea and Manchester United will be facing each other at the iconic Wembley stadium on 19th of May for FA cup final. Manchester United have won 12 FA cups till now whereas Chelsea has won it 7 times. Manchester United won against Tottenham (2-1) in the semi-final whereas Chelsea won against Southampton (2-0). Both the teams are high on spirit after beating two good teams respectively. 

FA cup final is the final game of the season for both the teams. Manchester United has finished 2nd in the league table and Chelsea has finished 5th in the table. None of the team has won anything this season and will look to increase the Silverware tally.

Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte had a couple of tough words exchanged in the past which will make this game more interesting to watch.

Besides this, both the clubs are the biggest clubs of England which will intensify the game.

Chelsea Predicted Line up:

Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger, Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Willian, Hazard, Giroud

Concerns for Chelsea:

Jose will be using Herrera to stop Hazard, and Conte has to deal with the defensive tactics of Jose.

Manchester United Predicted Line up:

De Gea, Valencia, Smalling, Bailly, Young, Matic, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Lukaku, Sanchez

Concerns for Manchester United:

Giroud is deadly in the air along with a good height, Lukaku is coming back from an injury which may turn negative for Jose.

​The match will start at 9.45 PM(IST) on Sony Network(India). You can also catch the live action on Sony Liv app.

My view:

It would be an interesting encounter where Giroud will provide the 1 goal lead and Sanchez will put Manchester United back to the level. The game will move to extra time and the winner will be decided on Penalties. I believe Chelsea will win on Penalties.
