Steven Gerrard believes Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho will be in the spotlight when Chelsea FC take on Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley next month.

The Red Devils booked their place in the FA Cup showpiece thanks to a 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur despite falling behind in the first half.

Dele Alli broke the deadlock in the eleventh minute before Alexis Sanchez equalised for the Red Devils ahead of half-time.

Manchester United need a second-half through the unlikely source of Ander Herrera to reach their first FA Cup final under Mourinho.

Chelsea FC were 3-2 winners against Southampton in the Premier League at St Mary’s earlier this month after coming from 2-0 down to rescue three points.

The Blues started Olivier Giroud after his two goals against the Saints in the Premier League and the January signing broke the deadlock in a 2-0 victory over Mark Hughes’ men at Wembley.

Conte and Mourinho have been embroiled in a heated war of words through the British media this season.

Former Liverpool FC captain Gerrard believes Conte and Mourinho will provide an interesting talking point in the FA Cup final.

“I’m sure it’s going to be the Conte and Mourinho show. They’ve had their battles already this season,” Gerrard told BT Sport.

Chelsea FC lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term.
