The final fixture of the 2017 / 2018 season is upon us and the chance to win a piece of silverware.
At Wembley Stadium later this afternoon, Chelsea and Manchester United will go head-to-head in the 2018 FA Cup Final.
The game sees Chelsea engage, once again, in a tactical war with our former boss, Jose Mourinho.
It’s a game both managers will want to win, something Antonio Conte emphasised at his pre-match press conference when he remarked,
“We have to try to do everything to win the game.”
Those looking for good omens will recall that the 19th May is a significant date in Chelsea’s history, it being the very date Chelsea finally claimed the Champions League trophy, on a marvellous night in Munich.
Could the date be the omen we’re looking for?
