Despite both clubs being highly successful in English football, this is only the third time Manchester United and Chelsea have met in the FA Cup final .
Chelsea have appeared in as many finals (12) as Manchester United have won. If United were to beat Antonio Conte's Chelsea on Saturday they would equal Arsenal's record for the most FA Cup final wins – 13.
As it stands, this game could be Conte's last game as Chelsea boss despite winning the league in his first season for the club last year .
After losing 2-1 to Arsenal in last year's final, which prevented Conte from winning the double, he will no doubt want to avoid back-to-back cup final defeats, regardless of his future and what lies ahead .
