Chelsea face Manchester United in the FA Cup Final at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.
The Blues take on the Red Devils after what has proven to be a difficult season for both clubs.
With City winning the title by a phenomenal run, United and Chelsea see themselves finish 2nd & 5th this season with no silverware.
Both sets of fans are frustrated with their teams’ inconsistencies this campaign.
The Blues have won 21 games and loss 10 while the Red Devils have won 25 and loss seven.
As of now, it seems that Conte’s side is at a disadvantage with their recent form.
However, Mourinho is not far behind as United fail to score vital goals.
In order for the season to not be a complete failure, one of these Premier League titans must win the FA Cup.
With the calibre of players both sides have, Chelsea and United have solid squads and experienced managers.
One of the main problems for both teams are the tactics they use with these players.
Both sides have the attacking power but majority of the time use possession play.
The only time we see these teams do well is when they decide to consistently push throughout a match.
United are most likely to win a match if they score within the first 25 minutes.
Chelsea – the West London side’s attack and midfield has been the heartbeat of the team in recent years.
With players such as Eden Hazard and Willian leading the attack, N’golo Kante provides the balance needed in midfield.
Manchester United – Nemanja Matic is with out a doubt the reason why United have finished top four this season. Players like Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia do well in pushing the team forward.
However, United have been associated with their clean sheets this season, making goalkeeper David De Gea their most valuable player.
A key player that may have an uncertainty in United’s starting line up is Romelu Lukaku due to fitness problems.
Though many speculate he’ll be available on Saturday, Lukaku needs to be fully fit.
With both teams having a defensive mindset, I think it will be a pretty long game that will go on to penalties.
United may have the edge with their recent form.
