Manchester United left-hander Luke Shaw has been ruled out of the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea after failing to overcome an ankle problem.


Shaw's fellow defender Brandon Williams should be fit after a face injury.

Manager Ole Gunner Solaskar said, "Luca will be out. Brandon will try to train with his eye on Saturday. We'll see if he can see the ball."

Midfielder On Golo Conte will play his fourth consecutive match for Chelsea due to a hamstring injury.

Scottish midfielder Billy Gilmour, 19, has left for the rest of the season after knee surgery.

Sergio Romero was on target for United Cup games, but Solaskar declined to confirm whether he or striker Jesse Lingard would join Wembley.

"The team has not been selected yet. Both Jesse and Sergio have a good chance of joining," Solaskar said.

"Jesse is a part of the club. He worked very hard and he deserves a chance to come back. We know his qualities. He has different qualities from other players and he knows we value him. Huh."

La la

I support United and Chelsea to beat Leicester and finish in the top four in the league. United have an edge when these two heads go head to head, and I think they will beat the Blues for the fourth time this season on Sunday.

The fact that the trio is playing well in front of them does not diminish the combined improvement, but it certainly helps that they are doing a better job than the rest of their team.

Chelsea was dangerous when they came forward, for sure. I think United have more threat, and they are more solid at the other end.

There have been a few London-FA Cup finals before, but if I live up to my expectations, and if both City and United win and play each other on August 1, it will be a great shame not to have their fans in the first All-Manchester Finals.

Estimation: 2-0
