With this clash a last chance for the two teams to claim silverware this term, things at set to be intense in the British capital this weekend

The 2018 FA Cup final will see giants Chelsea and Manchester United take on each other at the iconic Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues ended their Premier League season with a huge 3-0 loss at Newcastle United which crushed their hopes of making it into the top four.

With Antonio Conte’s men set for Europa League football next season, the FA Cup is the last chance for them to salvage something out of their disappointing season. Bet365 quotes them at (2.90) to claim ultimate glory.

The Red Devils finished off their own campaign in second place with a 1-0 home win over Watford. This FA Cup trophy is something Jose Mourinho has prioritised after seeing his side fade out in other competitions. They are thus quoted at (2.80) to lift a record-equalling 13th cup crown.

Should the game end in a stalemate at the end of 90 minutes, odds of (3.10) are available with the same firm.

This could mean extra time and potentially a penalty shootout will be needed to decide the winner and it’s (6.00) and (5.50) respectively for both outcomes.

The last five competitive meetings between these two giants has seen Chelsea record three wins while United have taken two wins. Odds of (1.38) are on offer for either team to come out victorious at Wembley.

Only two of their last eight meetings in all competitions saw both teams find the back of the net. Punters who strongly feel that it won’t happen this weekend can back it at the price of (1.75) while those who believe it will be the case have YES valued at (2.00).

United have kept clean sheets in all but one of their FA Cup games this season. It’s also worth mentioning that eight of their last nine competitive games with Chelsea has produced less than two goals. A clean sheet for Mourinho’s men is tipped at (2.75) while it’s (1.53) for under 2.5 goals to surface at Wembley all with Bet365.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
