As the 2016/2017 Premier League champions Chelsea finished the 2017/2018 league campaign outside of the top 4 positions, they will have an extra motive to defeat Manchester United in the second successive FA Cup final, having lost to Arsenal in the previous edition of the competition.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, have enjoyed a promising season, finishing as Premiership runners up, and they arrive at Wembley hoping to lift their 13th FA Cup title, winning the last of those two years ago.
David Luiz and Ethan Ampadu miss out through injury for Chelsea, but under-pressure manager Antonio Conte has no other selection worries.
Jose Mourinho, on the other hand, has received a major boost as Romelu Lukaku recovered from an ankle problem, although Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini are both rated doubtful.
The two sides are pretty evenly matched as far as online bookmakers are concerned, with bet365 paying 19/10 on Chelsea to win in ninety minutes and 17/10 on Man Utd to triumph in regular time.
Draw also looks an attractive proposition at 11/5, whereas the price on the match to be decided in extra time is 5/1.
Fit-again Romelu Lukaku can be backed at 11/2 to score the first goal, whereas Eden Hazard is 9/2 to beat him to it.
