Manchester United want Community Shield showdown vs. Manchester City - Phil Jones


Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes winning the FA Cup on Saturday would boost their Premier League title bid next season.

"That was my first start this season and we played a great game against Tottenham (Hotspur)", Christensen was quoted as saying by the club website. You don't hear about the ones that don't. I thought I wouldn't be fit for the final, then it came and I was, but the manager is probably thinking I had only just come back, could he trust my fitness in a game of that magnitude.

"I think their talent is fantastic and the creativity of the Brazilian player can not be measured".

In what has been his breakthrough season at the club, Christensen has already been rewarded for his performances on a personal level by picking up our Young Player of the Year award, and he explains what it would mean to bring the curtain down on the campaign by helping the team secure the FA Cup.

The Brazilian has had another good season for the Londoners and Chelsea fans, who face a very real prospect of losing Eden Hazard over the summer, will not want to see another one of their stars line out for Jose's United.

"The Cup Final is the Cup Final, it is the pinnacle of the season, and I just hope it lives up to expectations".

Moses, who was sent off in the last season's final against Arsenal at Wembley, said he hopes to be the match victor to erase the memory which he described as career worst so far. "We have another chance to play in another final against a top team". "About an hour, an hour and a half before that we find out the team", he said.

Speaking to reporters on Monday, he said: 'For the next game, for sure we must change.

"But, it's a final, it's a big game and I feel that normally in those games you shouldn't have to motivate players to play football because we do what we love and we always have to do it 120 percent". Let us know in the comments section below. You enter every competition trying to win it, and we fell short in the other competitions but we've not fallen short in this one yet.

United manager Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to challenge for the title next season, and Jones insists getting a crack at the champions at Wembley on August 5 - a week before the new season begins - would be a good way to start.
