FA Cup Final
Teams: Chelsea v Manchester United
Date: 19 May 2018
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Chelsea and Manchester United will renew their rivalry when they go head-to-head in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 18h15.
After lifting the Premier League title last season, the Blues have had a campaign to forget this term after finishing fifth, but can now redeem themselves by lifting the oldest knockout trophy in football.
Antonio Conte's charges reached the final last season, where they lost 2-1 to Arsene Wenger's Arsenal.
The Red Devils, meanwhile, will also be looking to redeem their season after finishing second behind Manchester City in the top-flight.
United came from behind to defeat Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final, while Chelsea saw off Southampton to advance to the final.
Romelu Lukaku has returned from injury but has only been named on the bench as Marcus Rashford leads the line for the Red Devils.
These two sides last met in the FA Cup in 2007, when Didier Drogba's extra-time goal sealed a 1-0 win for Mourinho's Chelsea.
Here's how they line up:
Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Rudiger, Moses, Kante, Fabregas, Bakayoko, Alonso, Hazard, Giroud.
Manchester United: De Gea, Valencia, Jones, Smalling, Young, Matic, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Sanchez, Rashford.
Who do you think will come out on top tonight? Have your say in the comment section below.
