Teddy Sheringham is backing Manchester United to adopt a “strategic” approach in this month’s FA Cup final clash against Chelsea FC.

Both of the Premier League sides have fallen short in all other competitions this season, meaning that the FA Cup is their last remaining hope of ending the campaign with a trophy.

Chelsea FC are currently outside the top four places in the Premier League, while Manchester United are in second place after confirming themselves as runners-up to champions Manchester City.

Manchester United will take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday 19 May.

And Sheringham is backing Jose Mourinho to get his Manchester United team to approach the game with a smart tactical plan against the Blues.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Sheringham said: “There’s an FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea to come but while you’d always expect humdinger between those sides, you know Jose is going to try and win the game in a strategic manner, not in the way Sir Alex would have approached it, saying: ‘Show them what you can do, put them under pressure and they’ll crack with our intense football’.

“It’s not like that with Jose. You’re breaking down teams and it’s not easy on the eye.”

Manchester United will first take on Watford in their final Premier League game of the season on Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea FC, meanwhile, will look try and keep their faint top-four hopes alive by beating Newcastle United in their final game of the season at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues have struggled to maintain consistent form in the Premier League this season after having won the title last term.
