It is clear that Jose Mourinho has to improve his Manchester United squad.

Wembley Stadium was assigned as home ground to the Premier League [VIDEO] team, Tottenham Hotspur for the 2017/18 season while their native home ground, White Hart Lane is being revamped.

"The FA Cup final is the cup competition in England that everyone wants to win".

"It'll be hard. I've played against him and trained against him loads of times", Cahill, who will face Lukaku in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday, said at Cobham Training Centre.

And yet all this would be window dressing on a project that has lost its momentum under Mourinho. The history of personal acrimony between the two bosses only serves to make this contest even more competitive. It's true that they can be tough to watch at times, particularly in the big games, but more often than not, Mourinho still gets results.

He was at Old Trafford on Sunday morning for treatment and has been assessed by the club's medical staff this week. The Ivorian conjured up a goal worthy of winning any final; receiving Jon Obi Mikel's pass, Drogba clipped the ball to Frank Lampard before spinning into the box.

United are the favourites to land the trophy as Chelsea failed to make it into the top four following a poor defense of their league title and coming off the back of a draw with Hudderfield and a convincing loss to Newcastle. Take Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez, for example.

He said: "The FA Cup Final is the climax to the football season and there is simply nothing like it".

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has said the club must not be satisfied with finishing as Premier League runners-up this season, claiming second place is "not enough".

Cahill has had a resurgent end to the season after finding himself playing regularly again following a prolonged period out of Antonio Conte's side. The Portuguese coach's reputation is on the line. Of course things turned sour for Di Matteo later in the year and he too was sacked by Abramovich, but the point is he was the right man at the right time to give the whole club the boost it needed.
