Predicted Chelsea XI to face Man Utd

Chelsea take on Manchester United in this season's FA Cup final at the Wembley Stadium. The Blues recently suffered the disappointment of finishing fifth in the Premier League standings but they have the chance of ending the season on a high by lifting the FA Cup on Saturday.

Formation: 3-4-3

Lineup:

Willy Caballero has been the preferred pick between the sticks for Chelsea in the FA Cup but Antonio Conte is likely to lean towards Thibaut Courtois, who remains the club's first-choice goalkeeper.

In central defence, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger have been constant picks over the past few weeks and Conte may go with the experience of Gary Cahill to complete the three-man backline.

At right wing-back, Victor Moses is a strong contender to feature and he is likely to be accompanied by Marcos Alonso on the other side of the field. The Spaniard has developed his game during his time at Stamford Bridge and he could have a say with his impressive free-kick taking abilities.

Onto the midfield, N'Golo Kante should start from the off after being the club's most consistent player in the centre of the park and Conte might pair him alongside Cesc Fabregas, who could be key to threading in key passes for the frontline.

Eden Hazard and Willian are very much certainties to start on the left and right side of the Blues attack and Olivier Giroud should beat Alvaro Morata to the centre-forward position amid his better scoring record of late.
