Chelsea vs United: Which players to pick in the Fantasy-XI?
Chelsea and Manchester United face each other in a gruelling FA Cup finale at Wembley. With both sides looking to seal their first and only trophy of this season, there is everything to play for, in this titanic clash between these two intense rivals. So who are the players you would pick in your Fantasy XI team? Here we guide you with the same.
Keeping the teams in mind, we go in with a 4-2-3-1 formation for you to earn the maximum points. Both teams have a star-studded line-up and could create many problems for their opponents. We managed to narrow down the final XI.
David de Gea has been the best in the business in England this season, claiming several records and awards. He gets the nod as the skipper of the side, given he can pull off exceptional saves and keep a clean sheet. Chris Smalling and Cesar Azpilicueta are the central defenders. Chelsea's Marcos Alonso is the left-back with United's Antonio Valencia being the right-back.
Two players have been engines of their respective sides and hence they make up the midfield duo of the Fantasy XI. Matic has been Jose Mourinho's most trusted player and the Serb has given a sturdy account of himself. N'Golo Kante is a class act making those influential runs and promising tackles. He can win the ball anytime and that makes him dangerous.
Eden Hazard is the side's vice-captain. The Belgian will be United's biggest headache and will fit in easily as the number 10 behind the striker. United's Alexis Sanchez has enjoyed a good record at Wembley and he is an essential choice as a left-flank winger. Jesse Lingard will be vital as a right winger. He can get the odd goals.
Well after keeping every possibility in mind and the form of Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, we go ahead with Romelu Lukaku as the lone striker of the side. He has a 50-50 chance of featuring, but one needs to take the risk, given his prowess.
