N’Golo Kante is adamant that Chelsea FC can beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Blues missed out on a top-four spot this season following a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League table.

Chelsea FC struggled to defend their Premier League crown and now face the prospect of another season without Champions League football.

The west London side can still end the 2017-18 campaign on a high note if Chelsea FC can win the FA Cup at Wembley this weekend.

The Blues were 2-0 winners against Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final to reach the FA Cup showpiece in successive seasons.

Chelsea FC were 1-0 winners against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge back in October before Jose Mourinho’s side beat the west London outfit 2-1 at Old Trafford earlier this year.

Speaking to the club’s website about the FA Cup final on Saturday evening, Kante said:

“Every final is different.

“We have played Manchester United twice this season, we have won once and lost once, and I think we have our chances of winning this game and getting this trophy.”

Kante won the PFA player of the year after the Blues won the Premier League title in the defensive midfielder’s first season at Chelsea FC in 2016-17.

Chelsea FC lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley last season to miss out on a double in Conte’s first season in charge.
