Emma Hayes’ side are currently second in the WSL behind their FA Cup final opponents, but they have two games in hand and could pip the Red Devils to two bits of silverware.

However, United have only lost two games all season and will prove to be a stern test.

This year’s showpiece is set to smash the record attendance at Wembley, with more than 65,000 tickets being issued.

The current record stands at 49,094, which was set at last season’s final.

Chelsea vs Manchester United: What has been said?

After securing their place in the final, United boss Marc Skinner was keen to remind his team that the trophy is not won yet.

He said: “I don’t want them to miss the opportunity to feel the game, but we haven’t won anything.

“So, get on to your business – you can feel it, but at game time don’t let it distract you.

“That’s the hardest balance, staying focused for a huge challenge before Wembley.”

Chelsea manager Hayes spoke of her delight at having the chance to win the FA Cup for the third year in a row.

She said: “You have the chance to play in the FA Cup final at Wembley, what more motivation do you need?

“This is what we all dream about, it’s what we work hard for. I’m delighted that we have the opportunity to defend our title.”
