Gary Cahill defends Chelsea decision to sell Romelu Lukaku

Gary Cahill defends Chelsea decision to sell Romelu Lukaku

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.

"I think we've become a bit idealistic about what the football was at times under Sir Alex". Still, this season can go down as a moderate success, but only if it leads to bigger and better things next year.

"And every game that goes by Sir Alex Ferguson's football gets better and better because you forget the bad games, the 1-0s, the frightful defeats". The final game will be played this Saturday, May 19 at one of the iconic stadia in England, the Wembley Stadium.

"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". Finishing second in the Premier League table is a step in the right direction after struggling to break into the top four since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013. It's a one-off game and we've got a very good side with lots of quality, lots of experience of winning trophies, as do they.

The FA's director of professional game relations Andy Ambler said: 'Over 3,000 goals have been scored in this season's competition, from all levels of the football pyramid.

VanVleet is a finalist along with former Raptor Lou Williams (Los Angeles Clippers) and Eric Gordon (Houston Rockets). After Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri fired Casey on Friday, he addressed media while fighting tears.

Jose Mourinho's men capped a positive Premier League campaign last Sunday, by beating Watford 1-0 thanks to Marcus Rashford's first-half goal. They've deserved that, as did we previous year.

"If you qualify for the Champions League for seven or eight years, but don't win any trophies, would you swap that for what we've done?"

"We can win the Cup and finish on a high". "The determination is there, for sure". However, he also added that United have a number of unsafe attacking players that could hurt Chelsea.

Speaking earlier in the season, Willian confirmed he received an approach from United last summer: "I had contact with Manchester United but I was not close to leaving", he told UOL. This game has so much at stakes for both the teams.
