The stakes will be high when Manchester United take on Chelsea in a highly anticipated FA Cup final on Saturday. The Blues have already endured a very underwhelming season while United would be hoping to add a silverware to their trophy cabinet.
This particular fixture has always been a delight to watch as it has provided lots of entertainment over the years and both the manager Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte will leave no stones unturned to make it a more exciting one.
Conte would be hoping to prove a point as his team failed to make it to the top four in the Premier League. From United’s perspective, Mourinho would feel the need to lift the mood at the club and he won’t find a better occasion than this. And now, let’s have a look at some players who may have a chance to change the game on their own.
Since he arrived at the club there has been a sense of positivity at the club. The French international will have the chance to end the season on a perfect note. He has shown his capability in recent times especially in a three man midfield and we can expect some more fireworks from him.
The former Juventus player set up a goal in the semifinal against Tottenham Hotspur and will be looking to add some more to his tally.
The French international has been a one man army in the Chelsea midfield and he will have the task to stop the United juggernaut in the FA Cup final. Arguably one of the best passers in this Chelsea side the midfielder will try to cut out the supply line of the United forwards.
Despite Chelsea not performing to his usual high standard one man has been a driving force on this side who is none other than 27 years old. Kante’s role would be vital as the player knows how to soak up the pressure.
This is a very big stage for the Chilean to get going in this high voltage clash. He has a knack of scoring goals at the Wembley Stadium and most definitely he would be happy to maintain his goal scoring streak. He has already been on the right side of FA Cup final results two times during his stint with Arsenal and Mourinho will rely on him once again as the Portuguese gaffer is gearing up for this big day.
