Alexis Sanchez has warned Chelsea FC that playing at Wembley helps him to produce his best form ahead of the FA Cup final clash with Manchester United.

The Chile international will be hoping to start for the Red Devils when they take on the west London club at Wembley on Saturday evening looking to end the season on a high.

Manchester United sealed their place as runners-up in the Premier League last weekend as they secured their highest-place finish since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.

The Red Devils are now looking to end the campaign on a positive note as they seek to beat Chelsea FC in the final on Saturday evening and win the third major trophy under Jose Mourinho.

Sanchez has a great record at Wembley with both Manchester United and Arsenal, with the 29-year-old having netted eight times in six games at the national stadium.

And the former FC Barcelona star has revealed that he is feeling confident ahead of the FA Cup final showdown against Chelsea FC this weekend.

Sanchez is quoted as saying by the Daily Star: “Playing at Wembley brings me a lot of luck.

“The reality is the change [of clubs] has been very, very difficult for me. I arrived at a big club and I changed everything from before.

“The coach told me he doesn’t like to sign players in January and it would take time for me to become accustomed to the new players. But I hope we can go on and win the FA Cup.”

Sanchez has endured a mixed run of form since his move to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January and has only scored three goals so far.
