Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte, two technicians appointed in case of defeat Beware: arbitrator Michael Oliver, the robbery of Juventus in Chamartín Two greats who have not set a particularly brilliant season as Manchester United and Chelsea seek to save the season with the ever prestigious FA Cup , whose final is played this Saturday (6.15 pm) at Wembley, the first in 137 years of history that will feature the controversial VAR. José Mourinho , in the shadow of Pep Guardiola in the Premiership and after the fiasco of the elimination of Champions at the hands of Sevilla, seeks a twist that, in case of Mancunian triumph, would allow the 'Red Devils' to equal Arsenal as a team more laureate, with thirteen English Cups.
United arrives with all the available squad, although two references in the attack as Lukaku and Martial have been training all week at a lower rate than their peers, due to various physical problems. The great novelty can be the presence of the Spanish De Gea under sticks, since in FA Cup the holder has been the Argentine Romero . "I'm not going to change my way of thinking about the season for a game," Mourinho said when asked if winning the title would save the course. "In Italy it's not very important, in Portugal it's a day that is celebrated a lot, just like in Spain, because it's a final, I played against Barcelona, it was a Real Madrid-Barcelona, but if it had not been against them (Barça) would not have been so important, however, in the FA Cup it does not matter what team is: historically it is the best Cup of all domestic competitions there is, "said Mourinho.Bet on your favourite team with asia bookie tips.

Olivier Giroud could be chosen as a reference above to the detriment of the questioned Alvaro Morata , while Thibaut Courtois points to start in the goal, with Willy Caballero relegated to the bench. "I'm focused only on tomorrow's game, which is very important for us because we had a very difficult season and this is an opportunity to finish the year with a title," said Conte , who has added this course in the league 23 points less than last. "The only thing I can say is that this is going to be my last game of the season, as everyone knows, I have a contract and I am committed to the club," replied the Italian, visibly annoyed, when asked about his continuity in Stamford. Bridge.
The last notable note of this final is that the referee is nothing less than Oliver , who sadly passed to the posterity after Benatia's penalty to Lucas Vázquez in the 93rd minute of Real Madrid - Juventus of Champions.
