It will be Jose Mourinho v Antonio Conte one more time this season as Chelsea take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final on Saturday. The action from Wembley kicks off at 5:15 p.m. and for both clubs, this will be their last chance at landing some silverware for the season. Manchester United finished second in the Premier League while Chelsea could only manage a fifth-place finish.

With failed Champions League and EFL cup campaigns for both, this is their only chance to put a bit of shine and polish on the season. It is Manchester United who go into the final as the narrow 9/5 odds favourite with bet365* (betting odds taken at 11:01 p.m. on June 17th, 2018). That leaves Chelsea as the 19/10 underdogs so it is expected by the bookmaker to be a pretty tight duel between them.

This is a repeat of the first ever FA Cup Final to be held at the new Wembley Stadium, which was back in 2007 with Chelsea taking a 1-0 victory after extra time. The Blues had a disappointing season in their title defence in the English top flight this term. In their final two games of the season they could only manage 1-1 home draw against Huddersfield before being convincingly beaten by Newcastle 3-0 on the final day of the season.

Manchester United meanwhile have lost just one of their last 14 games in all competitions, winning 10 of those so they are in good form even though they have been heavily criticised for failing to produce dynamic entertaining performances. During the course of the Premier League season the two clubs traded home wins.

Popular FA Cup Final Betting Markets

Both of those wins were by a one goal margin and on offer in the bet365 winning margin market, there is a 3/1 odds price on Manchester United with Chelsea at 10/3 odds* (betting odds taken at 11:01 p.m. on June 17th, 2018) to do it by that one goal margin.

Incidentally, Chelsea’s last four FA Cup Final successes have been¬†by one goal margin in the end. There are plenty of exciting FA Cup final betting markets open at bet365 from the standard fare of betting on the match outright and the popular goalscorer markets, to alternative options like scorecasts and Asian handicap betting.

Because this is expected to be a tight game between the two sides another good FA Cup final betting market at bet365 to consider is the Method of Victory. In there you can choose the outcome of the game by winning method for either team be it in 90 mins, extra time or penalties.

Will this be Antonio Conte’s last game in charge of Chelsea? Either way, can he sign off on the season on a positive note? The Blues have been struggling clinical finishing and defensive stability all season, but can they pull it all together once again at Wembley and make up for last season’s defeat in the showcase match to Arsenal?

On the other side of things, former Chelsea boss Mourinho would love nothing more than to get one over his Italian counterpart. While Manchester United have not been playing with style swagger they have been efficiently churning out results and certainly look the more consistent of the two sides.
