Courtois expects Mourinho 'surprises' in FA Cup final

Courtois expects Mourinho 'surprises' in FA Cup final

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

After holding his pre-match news conference in London prior to the semi-final victory against Tottenham last month, Jose Mourinho will do something similar on Friday, although the venue this time is likely to be Watford. There have also been a few surprises along the way, most notably Scott McTominay's involvement.

With crosstown rivals Spurs playing their home games at Wembley Stadium for the entirety of the 2017-18 season, they were bound to have some teething problems and the Blues took full advantage as they edged the Lilywhites 2-1.

We've fallen short in other competitions but we have a chance to win a trophy in the last game of the season.

"Wembley always deserves an entertaining Cup Final on the day when so many people around the world are watching and I feel privileged to have been a part of so many".

Jose Mourinho has been a fan of the Brazilian since his days at Chelsea and has been more than keen to take him to Manchester United since he joined the club in 2016. "I can't rewind it back now", Nigeria worldwide Moses said, reflecting upon a sapping end to his best campaign as a professional.

"I don't think it will be a high-scoring game but the Cup Final should always be a showpiece", said Motson.

"We all know it's hard to have time to come in as a young player - maybe the club and the supporters give you seven, eight, nine games where you're rusty and not performing".

"To be honest, I just want to play my football", he added. "Not afraid to try to make things to happen, when he feels that he's not as risky as you'd like him to be, he drops back, he tries things, he tries to come to building-up areas".

Who do you think will win the 2017/2018 EPL?

Despite securing a runner-up finish in the Premier League and making their way through to the FA Cup final, the Red Devils have once again faced accusations of flopping in 2017-18. "We have six days to change our approach, our desire, our will to fight because we can do much better".
