2018 FA Cup final:The 2018 FA Cup final will be played between Chelsea and Man United

London’s Wembley Stadium is also the venue for the final of the oldest cup competition in the world on Saturday. In the final of the FA Cup ex-champion, Chelsea meets England’s record champions Manchester United. For the bookmakers, there is no favorite and if you look at the results from the last direct duels, then everything speaks for a tight box. Both clubs played a mixed by their standards season with some disappointments experienced. By winning the FA Cup both clubs could save the season a bit far.

Form check Chelsea

The 3-0 upset Newcastle United on the final day of the Premier League was the negative end of a season in England’s captain’s house, in which former champion Chelsea finished fifth in the finals and missed the Champions League in the coming season. In retrospect, a win would not have changed the ranking, but the Blues had some computational chances for the premier league ahead of this final matchday, had Liverpool lost, but the Reds did not. Overall, Chelsea came in the Premier League to 21 wins, seven draws and ten defeats with a goal difference of 62:38. The 3-0 defeat at Newcastle was again the first break after Chelsea had previously been undefeated in seven competitive games in a row and won five of them. After the 1:

The record against the other big five from England looks as follows: Against Liverpool won Chelsea as mentioned at home and took in Anfield at 1-1 a point. Home-winning Tottenham Hotspur added one of only two home defeats to Chelsea’s 2-1 away win but lost their home game at Stamford Bridge 3-1. Against champions, Manchester City Chelsea lost both comparisons 0-1, while the blues separated from the city rivals Arsenal drew a total of three times – twice in the league, once in the League Cup – and flown out with a defeat in the second leg of the Carabao Cup from the other cup competition. Against the final opponent in the FA Cup Manchester United Chelsea won his home game 1-0, but lost in Old Trafford with 1: 2.Chelsea conceded a total of four defeats in the Premier League against only three wins and three draws against the other big players – a not so strong yield.

The second is known to be the first loser. And Manchester United feels that way too. Despite the runners-up in the Premier League, you can not be satisfied with the season at the Red Devils. A total of 19 points was at the end of the gap between champions and city rivals Manchester City. Added to this was the early knockout in the second round in the Champions League against Sevilla FC after two weak appearances against the Andalusians. Winning the FA Cup would not straighten out a rather messed-up season, but it would be a trophy more in the club showcase. Especially the last three games in the Premier League were rather mixed from the perspective of Manchester United. In promoted Brighton & Hove Albion United lost 1-0, six days later, there was a tired zero number at West Ham United.

Against Chelsea, there was a home win and an away defeat this season as mentioned. Against the other London club Arsenal, the Red Devils were able to win both duels this season in the Premier League for themselves. United won just one of two home defeats in the league this season against Manchester City, but retaliated with a 3-2 victory at the Etihad Stadium, despite Paul Pogba’s 2-0 defeat at half-time. Manchester United remained unbeaten against Liverpool and won 2-1 at Anfield at home theater of Dreams after a goalless draw. With this result, Manchester United prevailed in the semi-finals of the FA Cup against Tottenham Hotspur, after in each of the two duels in league play the home team could win. With a total of six wins, a draw, three defeats and another success against the Spurs in the FA Cup is the record of Manchester United against the other Great Britain better than that of Chelsea.

Chelsea – Manchester United, Tip & Conclusion – 19.05.2018

Norwich City, Newcastle United, Hull City, Leicester, and Southampton – the Chelsea way into the final was not paved with the big stones. Against second division Norwich Chelsea sat only in the replay at home and there on penalties. Overall, Chelsea conceded only two goals in the tournament. Manchester United had more luck with Derby County, Yeovil Town, Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion into the semi-finals, before Tottenham dueled in the last four. Against the Spurs conceded the Red Devils in a 2-1 victory their only goal in the entire competition. For bets on Chelsea, there are best odds of 2.95. With betting odds of up to 2.80, there are similar high scores for a Manchester United tip.

Manchester United has the better record against the other big teams from England. Also, United has won this season against any team from the Premier League. But: The Red Devils have also lost to all three promoted. The betting odds are in my opinion entitled. There is no favorite, the exit is completely open. For Antonio Conte, it could be the last game on the bench of Chelsea FC. Both may not admit it, but the win would make a mixed season at least somewhat conciliatory. In fact, Manchester United only managed to win two out of the last fifteen direct matches! That was two wins in the last three duels. I expect an open game in which both will come up with opportunities.
