Lukaku, Martial in Manchester United's squad for FA Cup final against Chelsea

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte renew hostilities with the stakes heightened when Manchester United and Chelsea face off in tomorrow's (May 19) FA Cup final needing silverware to mask this season's flaws. "But also, a squad with three or four Brazilian athletes, depending on their profile, can not make a great team too".

A quick Google search of "Alex Sandro FA Cup" points us in the direction of an article in the Times, published on May 13th, written by Duncan Castles, making those exact claims.

But "average" for a title-wining still seem odd, even if it's a comment that's likely comparing the Man United to their usual standard during the Fergie years that won the Champions League.

Former Manchester United defender Neville challenged Mourinho to win the Premier League title with the Red Devils next term or risk his future at the club.

But it was even more hard when considering it was his first post outside of Italy and he was up against the likes of Mourinho at Manchester United and Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, both of whom had spent vast sums to enhance their squads.

After providing the colour to our favourite footballing moments over the last 50 years, "Motty" retired on Sunday, with Crystal Palace's 2-0 win over West Brom being his final match.

"If you qualify for the Champions League for seven or eight years, but don't win any trophies, would you swap that for what we've done?"

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris said this month that finishing in the top four meant more than winning a trophy.

"Hopefully next season he will be better, which is what we think is going to happen".

The United boss remains keen on a reunion with the Chelsea winger.

"If we play like this in the FA Cup final, we don't have a chance".

"We all know it's hard to have time to come in as a young player - maybe the club and the supporters give you seven, eight, nine games where you're rusty and not performing".

"What I'm hoping for is an open game but it might not be that straightforward with Jose Mourinho's counter-attacking style".

"I don't think it will be a high-scoring game but the Cup Final should always be a showpiece", said Motson.
