FA Cup can be stepping stone to title, says United's Jones

The blues' have had problems in a number of different areas, with United taking one of their most impressive players for last season in August.

From a personal point of view, he'll also be desperate to return and get minutes under his belt ahead of the World Cup in Russian Federation next month, but his initial focus will be on helping Man Utd end the season with a trophy. They amassed over 80 points for the first time since the age of Fergie and but for the absurdly good season City had, would've been in a title tussle. A similar lack of goals lies in wait this year, but I think United will edge it as they've had a stronger scoring record in the big league games this season.

Victor Moses has said he is dreaming of scoring the winner in the FA Cup final on Saturday against Manchester United after he saw red in last year's final.

Manchester United have taken their first steps towards the signing of Chelsea midfielder Willian, holding informal talks with the Brazilian's representatives. The Blues failed miserably this season in the Premier League to finish top-4.

Should he repeat his feat from last season by beating Chelsea and join very esteemed company by scoring in a third final, Sanchez's mistakes since arriving in Manchester will be forgiven and forgotten.

Not many people know more about The FA Cup Final than John Motson - and the legendary commentator believes the Wembley showpiece is still the highlight of the season.

Willian will be one of the 137 players whose names will be inscribed on the Nike ball for Saturday's final - the FA's "Ball for All" which celebrates players from level six of the football pyramid through to the Premier League who have scored in this season's competition.

Both teams will try to summon their every strength to win the FA Cup final.

Jose Mourinho can be very fickle about the players he does and doesn't like, but his opinion about Willian has never wavered.

Pep Guardiola has expressed admiration for the way Jose Mourinho sets up his teams, noting the way his players "are always like soldiers". He has other good options for attack as Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial could be on the bench.

Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo all arrived for training on Wednesday morning accompanied by their wives, while Juan Mata showed up with girlfriend Evelina Kampf.
