Manchester United would join Arsenal in the FA Cup final with a win over Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday. The Gunners pulled off a shock 2-0 win over Manchester City yesterday to book their place in August’s showdown. Buoyed by their fine form, United will be confident of defeating a Chelsea side that has looked patchy of late, recently suffering a surprise 3-0 defeat to Sheffield United.
Both sides have almost full-strength teams available. United will be without Axel Tuanzebe and Phil Jones, though Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s real concern is over whether either of Luke Shaw or Brandon Williams will be fit to start at left-back. Timothy Fosu-Mensah started there in the midweek league win over Crystal Palace. Chelsea will be without Billy Gilmour and N’Golo Kanté, though are otherwise at full-strength.
