Who will win the 2017-18 FA Cup final?
Following the weekend’s matches, Man United will take on Chelsea in the showpiece at Wembley on May 19.
Of course, many will dub this the ‘Jose Mourinho final’. Prior to joining Man United, Mourinho had two spells in charge of Chelsea.
Yet the final will also be a tribute to Ray Wilkins, who also played for Chelsea and Man United in his playing days.
The Red Devils beat Spurs 2-1 in their semifinal, while Chelsea beat Southampton 2-0.
Jose Mourinho fears being ‘killed’
How much pressure is there on Jose Mourinho to win the FA Cup final?
In the Times on Monday, fresh quotes from United’s boss reveals the stress he’s under to win a trophy again this season:
When I don’t win [a trophy] you kill me. Because I almost do that all the time, when I don’t do it you kill me, which you are ready to do if I don’t win the final.
Last season Man United won the League Cup and the Europa League.
Would winning the FA Cup and finishing second in the Premier League signal a successful season for Mourinho at the Theatre of Dreams?

Man United’s summer recruitment
Mourinho has also given more information about how Man United may act in the summer transfer market.
While the Special One admits United will make signings, he’s warned supporters not to expect massive spending this summer:
We are going to invest the basic to improve our squad.We need to find a replacement for Michael Carrick; if Marouane Fellaini leaves we need to find a replacement for him; and there is always in a squad, a player or a couple of players that are not playing a lot and will try to leave.
So we will touch our squad and believe that rather than spend, spend, spend, it is [about] the evolution of our players.
We have some young players that need to get with both hands opportunities for their evolution.
