Mister Liverpool Steven Gerrard has given his verdict on who he believes will win the FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea.
Manchester United will face their historic rivals Chelsea in a crunch FA Cup final next month, with both the sides hoping to end the season with some silverware. The two English giants have not had the best of campaigns in the Premier League despite Manchester United finishing 2nd on the table and Chelsea currently struggling for a top 4 spot in 5th place. However, both these teams have managed to book their spot in the final of the FA Cup, which means it will be another much anticipated Jose Mourinho vs Antonio Conte battle according to Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.
The two have already formed the broth with their heated verbal exchanges earlier this season and will look to get a result over another. Manchester United was up against the wall in their semi-final with Tottenham Hotspur as the North London side took the lead early in the game, but Mourinho’s men showed great resilience and character to fight back and win the game 2-1 at Spurs home ground Wembley.
Chelsea too faced a stern Southampton side but the West London outfit managed to overcome the Saints in a 2-0 win which sealed their fate, one step closer to glory. Although Conte will remember the last season’s final defeat to Arsenal which would keep him more prepared this time.
Many pundits across the world have already chosen their winner for this season’s FA Cup final, but ex-Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has given a rather different opinion about the crunch encounter.
Gerrard’ Unique Opinion-
The 37-year-old former England captain, who has already won two FA Cup’s during his time at Anfield, chose not to pick a side when asked his verdict on whom he favors to lift the FA Cup this season. Gerrard spoke to BT Sport in a diplomatic manner and said, “I’m sure it’s going to be the Conte and Mourinho show. They’ve had their battles already this season”
I doubt that Gerrard is too interested in these two clubs because Liverpool is still in with a great chance to lift the Champions League. Gerrard has always had a fierce rivalry with all of the top clubs and therefore does not want to pick a winner, especially when it comes a few of the biggest clubs in English football, which is why he has focused mainly on the managers.
