Competition: FA Cup

Market: Manchester United to beat Chelsea

Odds: 8/5 @ Bet365

Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho face off at Wembley as Chelsea and Manchester United go head to head for FA Cup glory.

For The Blues, with it now all but confirmed that this will be Antonio Conte’s last game in charge of Chelsea, the FA Cup stands as The Pensioners’ only chance of saving what has been a poor season. Relinquishing their Premier League crown to Manchester City, Chelsea’s failure to secure Champions League football next year leaves serious question marks over some of their star men. Coming off the back of a 3-0 defeat to Newcastle on the final game of the season, their poor form can be epitomized by forward Alvaro Morata, the Spanish international now has one goal in his last eight.

As for Jose Mourinho, although many have criticised The Red’s style of football this year, Manchester United have secured second spot in the Premier League and the FA Cup will deliver Manchester United their fourth trophy in two years. Coming off the back of a 1-0 win against Watford on the final game of the season, United also travel to London with a stellar record in the capital. Mourinho has now only lost one of his last eight matches at the national stadium and won his last clash against The Blues 2-1 back in February.  One man to watch could be Alexis Sanchez, along with scoring against Tottenham in the semi-final, the Chile international now has seven in seven when playing at Wembley.
