Gary Neville Labels 2003-2006 Manchester United Side As 'Pretty Average'

It might not save manager Antonio Conte's job but Chelsea can still salvage a disappointing season by winning Saturday's FA Cup final against Manchester United, says captain Gary Cahill.

The Red Devils finished second in the Premier League this season, and they rounded off their respectable campaign by edging past Watford 1-0 in their final outing last Sunday. Both the managers, Conte and Jose have their best players available for the game.

"Last season we went into the final thinking we could just deliver like we did for the rest of the season", he said.

Jose Mourinho brought the winger to the Premier League when he was in charge of the Blues and has made it no secret that he would like to reunite with him once again.

But "average" for a title-wining still seem odd, even if it's a comment that's likely comparing the Man United to their usual standard during the Fergie years that won the Champions League. "You are talking to the wrong fella", he said.

Should he repeat his feat from last season by beating Chelsea and join very esteemed company by scoring in a third final, Sanchez's mistakes since arriving in Manchester will be forgiven and forgotten. "My first year here, (former Arsenal manager) Arsene (Wenger) had always treated me like a son".

"But in another season, we would have been challenging with 81 points".

Not many people know more about The FA Cup Final than John Motson - and the legendary commentator believes the Wembley showpiece is still the highlight of the season.

Mourinho is keen to do most of his transfer business early due to the World Cup and a shorter transfer window and it seems Sandro could on his way to Old Trafford soon.

"I think he looks fantastic".

The United squad took the train on Wednesday afternoon as they begin preparations to face Chelsea at Wembley this Saturday. This is like we are going into it to save the season. The fire - you have it or you don't have it and on Saturday we have to make sure everyone is on top of their game.

"I just want to work hard, that's the most important thing, help my team-mates, and win as many games as we can".

Also in the travelling party were Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and Ashley Young, fresh from learning they will be in England's World Cup squad.
