Gary Neville has warned Chelsea FC that Manchester United will be desperate to win the FA Cup this season and end the campaign on a high.

It has been something of a mixed campaign for Jose Mourinho’s men during the Portuguese coach’s second season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were knocked out of the Champions League in the last 16 stage by Sevilla, and they failed to keep pace with runaway champions Manchester City in the Premier League.

Manchester United will now have their sights firmly set on finishing in second place in the Premier League table and winning the FA Cup this season.

The Red Devils booked their spot in the FA Cup final with a 2-1 win over Tottenham on Saturday and they will take on Mourinho’s former side Chelsea FC in the showpiece at Wembley next month.

Former Manchester United defender Neville is under no illusions about it still being a disappointing season for the Red Devils, but he has talked up the importance of beating Chelsea FC to win a trophy this term.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Neville said: “For United, is it a great season? No.

“But it is a good season because the momentum is still going as they have the opportunity to win the FA Cup and finish second, which would be progression.

“The importance of getting another medal round the necks of the players should not be underestimated in terms of keeping building and challenging Manchester City next season.”

Manchester United are currently in second spot in the Premier League as they prepare to welcome Arsenal to Old Trafford on Sunday.
