Chelsea have learnt from last year's FA Cup final, insists Cesc Fabregas

18 Mai 2018

Sportsmail's claims Chelsea are compiling a "dossier" of transfer targets ready for the new manager to give the final say on - whether that's Maurizio Sarri, Luis Enrique or Mauricio Pochettino. Banners will also be unveiled in both the United and Chelsea ends in his memory before kick-off.

FC Barcelona will play against Chelsea in a Champions League round of sixteen second leg Wednesday.

But former United striker Andy Cole has backed the big Belgian to win his fitness battle, telling the club's website: "It may be hard for him but, hopefully, he'll be passed fit and do the best he can".

On paper alone, United have definitely had a good season.

"There are many good coaches, but I like to make my assistants". "We don't have to think about next season, we need to win now, Saturday", he said.

Whether Conte's side can cause United problems depends a lot on whether Hazard turns up. Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is available for selection. Chelsea have a near fully fit squad but Danny Drinkwater and David Luiz will miss out.

Conte is almost sure to depart Stamford Bridge following Saturday's FA Cup ultimate in opposition to Manchester United, with Luis Enrique and Maurizio Sarri among the many contenders to interchange the Italian.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hinted he is set to make big changes to his backroom staff at Old Trafford when No. 2 Rui Faria departs after the FA Cup final. He is their best player and on his day he can be unplayable which is no secret. "I think the winning mentality has nothing to do with records or history in finals".

United's current manager, Mourinho signed Willian during his second reign at Chelsea in 2013 and has previously attempted to sign the winger for Manchester United.

In the end, I have to side with Conte because of the way he has held himself together in the face of nearly impossible conditions and still brought his team to a Wembley final.

Saturday's final will be played between two former clubs of Ray Wilkins, who passed away last month.

Both have beaten each other at home this season, while the Cup final offers Chelsea and Manchester United an opportunity to end their season on a high with a trophy in their cabinet.

"As a player you have to take as much in as possible and see how the players prepare for the game, particularly the players in your position, just to see how the team chemistry gets going because it's such a big day".
