Ander Herrera has described Chelsea FC as a top team ahead of the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils are looking to end the 2017-18 season on a positive note following a disappointing Premier League campaign.

Manchester United were 2-1 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley last month following goals from Alexis Sanchez and Herrera.

The 20-time English champions will take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup showpiece following the west London side’s 2-0 win against Southampton.

The Blues lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup showpiece last term to miss out on a double in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge.

Speaking to the club’s website about the FA Cup final, Herrera warned his Manchester United team-mates about coming up against Chelsea FC.

“This club is about titles, about trophies, it’s about finals,” Herrera told Man United’s website. “We have another chance to play in another final against a top team.”

Manchester United won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal in 2015 following a 2-1 extra-time win over Crystal Palace at Wembley.

The Red Devils signed Sanchez in a swap deal from Arsenal in the January transfer window.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and five points adrift of Liverpool FC to miss out on a Champions League spot.
