It will be a first experience of a major tournament for Lingard, while Young will be going to his first World Cup as reward for another consistent season with the Reds.

Both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte will be desperate for victory to ensure they don't end the season empty handed.

Wembley Stadium will also see the Hornet's green and gold illuminated on it's iconic arch as the FA look to champion all 737 clubs who entered this season's competition.

Chelsea being Chelsea though, there's always a faint hope among supporters that, despite current problems, somehow the team will rise above them and put in a mesmerising performance against Man United which will bring cup glory.

Mourinho at least has second-place in the Premier League in the bag, but he'll want to win more silverware for Man United on the back of their Europa League and League Cup successes in his debut campaign at Old Trafford.

"I remember that game well".

"We'll always have our critics because we're Man United and ultimately it's been like that since I've been here, but it shows that we're moving in the right direction under him (Mourinho). I can't rewind it back now", Nigeria global Moses said, reflecting upon a sapping end to his best campaign as a professional.

United would be the odd one out if he fails to finish atop the pile in at least one of his seasons at the club.

"Every one of us wants to stay disciplined and focused and do what the manager asks of us on the pitch and make sure that we win".

The former Atletico Madrid keeper, who won the FA Cup in 2016 under Louis van Gaal, added that it's paramount for a club of United's size to be contesting for trophies year after year, due to the club's stature within the game. I thought I wouldn't be fit for the final, then it came and I was, but the manager is probably thinking I had only just come back, could he trust my fitness in a game of that magnitude?

"I really don't think we're far away".

"I'd just say to Chelsea fans, last week at Newcastle was disappointing, but that game had zero importance in the end because Liverpool won", he said.
