Chelsea and Manchester United go head-to-head in the final outing of 2017/18 when they meet in the final of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon. Both will be desperate to add to their respective trophy cabinets and we can expect a thrilling high-octane encounter with both teams motivated to claim the spoils at the national stadium. The Red Devils will be pretty satisfied with how they have competed in this season’s Premier League campaign although they will doubtless be disappointed in the manner in which arch-rivals Manchester City won the title. Nevertheless Jose Mourinho’s men finished some five points clear of third-placed Liverpool and they can look forward to a Champions League campaign in 2018/19 thanks to some consistent results of late with 2-1 wins over rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal last month. They will be eager to build on this relative success by grabbing some silverware this weekend and you can back the Red Devils with added value thanks to the many free bets available with the bookmakers.
Chelsea struggled to keep up with the top-four in the Premier League and their hugely disappointing defeat to Newcastle United in their final league outing, coupled with Liverpool’s win over Brighton & Hove Albion, means that they have failed to make it into the Champions League and instead will need to content themselves with Europa League football coming to Stamford Bridge next season. Indeed the Blues struggled to take points off the top-four this season and this will be of concern to boss Antonio Conte, especially since they conceded three goals without reply in their weekend meeting with Newcastle United. Conte’s men won’t be an easy target at Wembley this weekend but given their struggles this season we’ll be siding firmly with the Red Devils, Bet365 Bookies going 8/5 on Manchester United to win.
