LONDON — Starting lineups and live streaming coverage for today’s FA Cup final between Manchester United and Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. Fox Network will provide live television coverage of the game, while, Fox Sports GO will have the online streaming.
Manchester United will start without leading forward Romelu Lukaku, who is only fit enough for the bench after picking up an ankle injury a few weeks ago.
With Lukaku on the bench, manager Jose Mourinho has decided to hand youngster Marcus Rashford the starting place to lead the front line with Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard also in the front line as well.
Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic both start in midfield, while Phile Jones and Chris Smalling are the starting center-backs as Mourinho makes eight changes to the team that featured in the last outing.
For Chelsea, meanwhile, boss Antonio Conte has opted to start with Olivier Giroud in the front line.
Giroud gets the nod ahead of Alvaro Morata with Conte making only three changes from their defeat at Newcastle United in the last English Premier League game of the season.
The trio coming into the team are Cesc Fabregas, Anthony Rudiger and Marcus Alonso.
