The FA Cup final takes place this weekend and on Saturday evening Chelsea will take on Manchester United, with both teams looking to land the final piece of silverware of the domestic Premier League season. Both teams will want to send their fans home happy for one last time, the bookmakers are struggling to split these two and everything points to it being a great game.

Chelsea vs Manchester United – Chelsea to win @ 19/10 with 32Red Sports

Although Manchester United finished 2nd compared to a 5th placed finish for Chelsea, there is little to choose between these two teams. Both have a solid record, and ended the season with three wins from their last five games. However, Chelsea did finish with a draw to Huddersfield and a loss to Newcastle, so they will have to get those out of their system.

I don’t expect many goals to be scored in this one and that means the game could come down to one individual piece of skill or a lucky bounce. Chelsea have Eden Hazard in their team who can create things out of nothing, and also Olivier Giroud who I think will start the game due to his fantastic Wembley goal scoring record. Should a chance fall to Giroud on the day, I fully expect him to tuck it away and that could be enough for Chelsea to lift the trophy.

With both teams thinking about their defensive duties first and not wanting to lose the game, I doubt we will see many chances. It could take just one chance to fall to the right player for someone to win this and if that is true, Chelsea have the man for the job in Olivier Giroud. I’ll be backing the Frenchman to fire his team to glory, and they can be backed to win the game in 90 minutes with 32 Red Sport at 19/10, which looks to be a very fair price.
