Manchester United and Chelsea booked a highly anticipated FA Cup final after beating Tottehnam Hotspurs and Southampton respectively. 

The Red devils needed a two goal comeback to defeat Spurs yesterday. 

England international Delle Ali had put Tottenham ahead in the fourth minute, finishing off a clinical cross from Christian Eriksen. 

However, the ‘Red Devils’ proved again their resilience with a perfect comeback again this season with Alexis Sanchez equalising in the 26th minute before Ander Herrera scored the winning goal. 

On the other hand, goals from Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata ensured Chelsea book their second consecutive FA cup final, having lost to Arsenal last season.

The fixture will revive the rivalry between the two clubs, dating back to 2007 when the two faced in the same competition, a first final at the then New Wembley stadium.

Jose Mourinho (pictured, file) was then the Chelsea manager and a 116th minute extra time goal from Didier Drogba saw Chelsea clinch a 1-0 against Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.

Eleven years later, Mourinho now manages Manchester United and will face his former club, Chelsea FC, now being coached by Antonio Conte.

The two managers have had a war of words  in the recent past. 

Will Jose Mourinho manage another Wembley Final victory with two different teams or will Chelsea give Conte a first final match victory?  

The match will be played on 19th of May, 2018 at Wembley Stadium.
