The Emirates FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester United will kick-off at 5.15pm on Saturday 19 May, .

The kick-off time was agreed after consultation with the Safety Advisory Group.

The Wembley showpiece will be refereed by Michael Oliver, who will be assisted by Lee Betts and Ian Hussin, with Lee Mason the fourth official.

Neil Swarbrick will be the first video assistant referee (VAR) in FA Cup Final history, with Mick McDonough the assistant VAR.

Oliver said: "I was very proud and humbled to receive the phone call.

"When you start out, taking charge of the Cup Final is not something you even think about. As your career progresses it becomes a realistic target but it’s not a call you ever expect to take. This opportunity only comes around once in a referee’s career.

"It’s funny how things work out because the 1994 Final between Manchester United and Chelsea is the first one I remember watching. And now here I am taking charge of those two teams in an FA Cup Final 24 years later."

Meanwhile, ticket allocations are in line with last season, with each set of fans being allocated over 28,000 tickets. The figure represents approximately 80 per cent of the available seating.

As well as the ticket split between the two Finalists, approximately 14,000 tickets will be distributed back into the game through the football family, which includes volunteers representing County FAs, FA affiliated leagues, clubs and charities.

Tickets for the Final are priced £45, £70, £115 and £145 for adults, with a saving of £25 for concession tickets in category 1 and 2 and a saving of £10 in category 3 and 4.

Chelsea fans will occupy the east end of Wembley Stadium while Manchester United fans will be in the west end, determined by the travel requirements of the majority of each club’s supporters.

Most years there's one team I usually favour over the other, for instance when you get someone like Wigan or Crystal Palace playing one of the big clubs. This year I have no interest whatsoever so won't bother to watch it either live or the highlights. Conte is an utter twat, especially when he says garbage like "I won't have players laughing or smiling when they are training" and Mourinho is just a hypocritical tosspot!
Flotsam: People who are considered to be worthless or to have been rejected by society.

Jose Mourinho: Chelsea didn't deserve FA Cup win - Man Utd boss

Chelsea 1 - 0 Manchester united

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says Chelsea did not deserve to win the FA Cup, accusing them of "defending with nine players" during the final.

The Blues lifted the trophy for the eighth time as Eden Hazard's first-half penalty earned a 1-0 win at Wembley.

But Mourinho said: "I think we were the best team, but that is football.

"I am quite curious to know what you say or what people write because if my team plays like Chelsea did, I can imagine what people would say."

United did not have a shot on target in the first half on Saturday but were much improved after the break, as Thibaut Courtois superbly denied Phil Jones' header before Paul Pogba nodded wide when unmarked.
