Manchester United hold talks with Willian over switch


With crosstown rivals Spurs playing their home games at Wembley Stadium for the entirety of the 2017-18 season, they were bound to have some teething problems and the Blues took full advantage as they edged the Lilywhites 2-1.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes winning the FA Cup on Saturday would boost their Premier League title bid next season.

Hazard and Willian revealed earlier this season that they wanted to play together more often, with Conte's tactics at the time not allowing that, while the Brazilian stormed down the tunnel after being substituted in the semi-final of the FA Cup against Southampton.

"We need to work hard, stick together and hopefully if we can do that, we can overcome anyone".

Chelsea have been criticised in the past for not giving Lukaku a chance and the club have faced similar ridicule this season following the stunning campaigns of former players Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne. We're in the final against a good team, but it's about winning trophies.

"In terms of the game we couldn't have done anything with a win, a loss or a draw, so the game has to be put to bed". You enter every competition trying to win it, and we fell short in the other competitions but we've not fallen short in this one yet. If we can win it, it will be a great bonus, but we just want to finish strong.

"I really don't think we're far away". Let us know in the comments section below.

An FA spokesperson said: "We wish the Duke and the happy couple a wonderful day".

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

Lukaku is battling to shake off an ankle injury but is expected to be available for the final.

"A very organised game plan, for sure", Cahill said of how Mourinho will prepare United. This game has so much at stakes for both the teams.
