Manchester United are not entertaining, says Paul Merson

Chelsea forward Olivier Giroud signals a heart shape towards the fans

Forward Olivier Giroud has scored eight times in nine Premier League appearances against Newcastle

"It's a success anyway because he won the Premier League previous year, but if they win the FA Cup and beat Manchester United at Wembley it would be an absolute success".

"I'm going to have assistant coaches, I'm going to have fitness coaches, and a structure where they have specialists in different areas connected to the performance". "For 10 months I get asked "why always Lukaku?" We want to win for the club and for the fans.

"You are disappointed but at the same time, you understand".

Smalling was left out of the squad against Watford on the final day of the season, while Jones was on the bench.

"There are places up for grabs all over the pitch", he said.

Sandro has mostly featured in the left-wing position under Max Allegri this season and his tendency to overlap his wide players is surely an attribute which will have impressed manager Jose Mourinho.

"It's a final against United, on a big stage at Wembley, the last game of the season, you just have to go all for it".




Former Manchester United star Neville believes the FA Cup final is a huge game for both Chelsea FC and Manchester United.

"You've got to go step by step", he said. Breakfast is optional but at 11 or 12 there will be a team meeting.

"Maybe one day we are playing against each other in the Premier League", Mourinho told MUTV.

An irregular heart rhythm limited the midfielder's first-team involvement, and his final appearance against Watford was just his fifth match of the campaign. If you are not, you are obviously disappointed but you have been a part of the whole season, so everyone will rally round the lads who are playing and wants them to do well.

"I expected to, to be honest. Because I've got things, I'm kind of more excited about the future than looking back and being sad that it's over".

"Their neighbours are breaking all these records, playing the way they are, and then there are 70,000 people turning up at United every week sitting there and thinking: 'What's in the programme?' It has not been entertaining, and it has been The Mourinho Way".
