FA Cup Final Tipped To Be A Slow Burner When Manchester United Take On Chelsea

Although supporting the underdog is fashionable, the neutral will be glad that Chelsea and Manchester United have seen off Southampton and Spurs, respectively, for a meeting of old-rivals, prickly managers and a still bubbling animosity in the FA Cup Final this Saturday.

It has been 12 years since Didier Drogba’s extra-time winner secured Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea with the trophy, and the Portuguese’s only FA Cup triumph, over Manchester United, who were of course managed by Sir Alex Ferguson at the time. Mourinho’s Manchester United are slight favourites at 5/6, best with bet365. Chelsea are at 21/20 to lift the trophy on Saturday (betfred).

FA Cup Final: Manchester United v Chelsea    
Tips Half-Time 0-0    Best Bet @ 7 / 5  

Chelsea were last year’s runners up to Arsenal, but there’s a different mood around last season’s Premier League champions. Instead of chasing the Double, Chelsea find themselves with a disappointing 5th place position, without Champions League football, and with their manager most probably on the touchline for the last time before moving on in the summer.

Manchester United, for all the criticism levelled at them this season, have performed consistently well against the big teams of the league; beating Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Spurs, and Arsenal through the course of the season, on three occasions after going behind. For them to come back from being under the cosh is an excellent 16/1 with both Ladbrokes and Coral. This is a record-equalling 20th appearance in an FA Cup Final, and United can match Arsenal’s record of lifting the trophy 13 times.

Utd striker Romelu Lukaku is touch-and-go to come back from injury, being saved by Mourinho in the remaining fixtures of the league to make a recovery in anticipation of the cup final. In a starting berth and to open the scoring at 11/2 (bet365). The Belgian scored in Utd’s 2-1 win over Chelsea back in February. His compatriot, the mercurial Eden Hazard, is the shortest-backed Chelsea player to score first, at an excellent 13/2 with William Hill.

Big occasions are Jesse Lingard’s forte, and for the Warrington lad to bag a goal with a Manchester United win is 5/1 with BoyleSports. Lingard scored in United’s last FA Cup Final two years ago, when they were under the stewardship of Louis Van Gaal. Alternatively, and away from the scoring, a good shot might be to back Ander Herrera to be booked within the match is 6/4 with BetVictor, or over 10.5 corners at 5/6 (betfair).

A likely tight game, under 2.5 goals is 4/7 with BetVictor. Under 0.5 in the first half is 7/5 with Betfred. Chelsea have scored just three goals in their past four games, and come into this off a draw and a comprehendsive thrashing by Newcastle in the last fixtures of the season.

Following this, a draw at half-time with a United win after 90 minutes is backed with PaddyPower. 2-0 to Manchester United seems like a fair result, and seal Antonio Conte’s miserable departure from West London. This is at 12/1 with BetVictor.
