Our Manchester United in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful the Red Devils can brush aside a disgruntled Chelsea side in the FA Cup final today, as they seek to win it for the second time in three years.
The Red Devils are back in for another trophy in Mourinho’s reign after winning the Europa League and League Cup last year, much to the delight of the punters propping up our bar. Now, they come up against a Chelsea side that will be looking to potentially send their manager out on a high, much like LVG a couple of seasons ago. Mourinho has a good record against the top six recently and will be looking at grinding out another result to take the cup back to Old Trafford and United can’t afford to lose, as they look to build for next season.
Many of the fans in the bar expect United to win the FA Cup and are hoping that that can get the day out they want and, while the Premier League outfit are clearly a good side, on the whole, a loss would really prove frustrating for those at the Theatre of Dreams.
Mourinho, in order to secure the win, must have players in his squad to trust with the job in hand and, with that, our landlord believes the Portuguese needs to axe this star player…
OUR VERDICT – Anthony Martial
The French star could have his poor week capped off with being dropped for the FA Cup final alongside not being included in the World Cup squad for Russia.
Many reports suggest Martial is on his way out of Old Trafford this summer after some fairly inconsistent displays under Jose Mourinho, and the Portuguese is fed up with his poor attitude.
Since the arrival of Sanchez, Martial has been edged out somewhat at United, and this will continue today.
