Road to Wembley
What an occasion today is for everyone at Manchester United. The first trophy on offer this season and we are privileged to be one of the teams playing at Wembley.
We've been on a great cup run this year and the fans deserve the trophy as they have supported the team throughout this competition, especially the semi final against Newcastle when we struggled to play against them.
Robin, Wayne and Danny have been looking around Wembley earlier today to familiarise themselves with the surroundings. The rest of the lads have been trying to prepare themselves for the final, however I know there are some nerves around the team, so hopefully the more experienced players can help them through the game.
Regarding my team news, I had to bring in some experience and pace into the team, but I also needed a very good back four so we stay solid throughout.
Robin and Wayne will be starting up top, they have been great together this season and they could be the players who can win this game for us.
Shinji and Juan will be starting as well at the expense of Nani and Valencia as they have been in great form in the league and hopefully they can have a great game here as well. They are both very creative and can find Robin and Wayne up top.
Maurouane and Michael are going to be the holding midfielders today. I left out Giggsy as he isn't fully fit and Miralem has a little injury so he is on the bench. Maurouane will be tasked to win the ball back in midfield and find either Shinji or Juan so they can feed our strikers.
Michael will be sitting in front of our back four to keep them secure from the oppositions attacking players.
My back four consists of experience, strength, pace and aerial ability. Nemanja will be alongside Jonny as my centre halves. Alex and Rafael will be my full backs. They have improved defensively this season and have been great going forward too.
Hopefully the team is the correct one as Tottenham will give it their all. It is almost time to get to the stadium now so hopefully we'll win the trophy today and bring it back to Manchester where it belongs.
