Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera ensured that Utd would play in the showpiece final and are hoping to help them win the competition for the 13th time.

Jose Mourinho has won the competition once with his former side Chelsea and is looking to become only the third manager in history to win the competition with two different clubs.

Chelsea booked their place in the final for the second year in a row courtesy of goals from Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata.

Michael Oliver was today named referee the final and the Football Association has confirmed the video assistant referee (VAR) system will be used for the first time in a FA Cup final, with Neil Swarbrick taking the role.

Oliver has endured a difficult couple of weeks after receiving death threats for sending off Gianluigi Buffon in the Champions League semi-final.
