Chelsea marksman N’golo Kante has been talking up the Blues chances at clinching the FA Cup title when they take on Manchester United in the final at Wembley this Saturday, according to report.
The former Premier League Champions Chelsea were dismal in the final league game of the season against Newcastle United, who subjected them to a 3-0 thrashing at the St James’ Park. The defeat epitomised Chelsea’s poor season that has left them out of the Champions league of next season.
While the Blues are expected to go into the FA Cup final with low spirit, following their last game in the league, United are dubbed as favourites for the FA Cup title – the Red Devils ended the season as first runners up and they cruised past Watford in their final game of the season.
There is currently no love lost between Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho, who have at the slightest opportunity spite each other. In the Premier league, both managers won each other in their Premier league home games and so, we expect a tough outing.
Speaking ahead of the crunch tie with United, Kante revealed why Chelsea, who are dubbed as slight underdog, have the most chance to win the title.’
“We are all a bit disappointed about our final place in the table, but this is something to win, something to finish the season on a good note, and something we can enjoy all together with the team, the staff, the supporters. We are really looking forward to it.”
“We have played Manchester United twice this season, we have won once and lost once, and I think we have our chances of winning this game and getting this trophy” the diminutive midfielder added.
Antonio Conte’s fate as the manager of Chelsea is heavily hinged on the outcome of the game on Sunday.
