Chelsea vs Manchester United: TV channel, live stream, squad news & FA Cup final preview

Two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs lock horns as they attempt to get their hands on one of the most prestigious trophies in English football

The curtain comes down on the English season on Saturday at Wembley Stadium as Manchester United and Chelsea collide in the 2018 FA Cup final.

United are chasing a record-equalling 13th title, which would put them level with Arsenal as the most successful team in the competition’s history, while Chelsea, who last won the FA Cup in 2012, will attempt to lift the vaunted trophy for the eighth time in their history.

The Blues overcame Southampton in the semi-final to bookend their season with a trip to England’s famous ‘Home of Football’ and they will be particularly desperate to win having suffered a bitter defeat to London rivals Arsenal in the final last season.

The Red Devils, meanwhile, saw off Tottenham in the other semi-final and it is a prime opportunity for Jose Mourinho, who last won the competition while at the helm of Chelsea in 2006, to add another piece of silverware to his collection since taking the reins at Old Trafford.

There are lingering concerns over the fitness of Romelu Lukaku, who is in a race against time to establish his availability as he recovers from a foot injury. Anthony Martial and Marouane Fellaini are also carrying knocks.

Potential Man Utd XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Rojo, Young; Pogba, Matic, Mata, Sanchez, Lingard; Lukaku.

The significance of the FA Cup has diminished for England’s traditional ‘big clubs’ in recent years thanks to the influx of television money and the head-turning allure of contintental competition, but that won’t take the sheen off the the season’s closing showpiece between Manchester United and Chelsea on Saturday.

The Premier League campaign has concluded and both teams are assured of their places in next season’s European competitions, but the FA Cup final is the last chance for both clubs to get their hands on a piece of silverware – something that would serve as a fitting final flourish for players and fans alike.

Winning the famous competition is arguably of greater importance to the legacy of Antonio Conte, as the Italian coach looks to soften the blow of missing out on Champions League qualification. Indeed, it may even be his final act as Blues boss as speculation swirls around his future and he will be desperate to bid adieu in style.

United have already booked their place in next season’s Champions League by finishing second in the league and, while that may be an improvement on his maiden campaign, Mourinho will surely be disappointed if he finishes his second term without a single trophy.

Juventus vs Hellas Verona Live

Gianluigi Buffon leaving Juventus but putting off retirement

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon will play his last match for the Italian champion on Saturday and has put off retirement to consider offers to play overseas.

Buffon, who is widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers of all time, was expected to announce his retirement at a news conference in Turin on Thursday.

Instead, while the 40-year-old Buffon says the Serie A match against Hellas Verona on Saturday will be his last for Juventus, he has received “exciting” offers which have changed his mind about hanging up his gloves.

“(On) Saturday I will play a match and that is the only thing that’s certain,” said Buffon, who teared up at the start of the conference after an emotional tribute from Juventus president Andrea Agnelli.

“Until about two weeks ago, I was certain I would stop playing. Now offers have arrived that are exciting on and off the pitch, and the most important was proposed to me by Agnelli.

“I’ll let these three days pass and then I will make a definitive decision, in complete calm, and which will be one that calls to my personality and my nature.”

Buffon made his debut with Parma in 1995, and has been at Juventus since 2001. He has ruled out moving to another Italian club or dropping down the divisions.

“I am not someone who thinks it is right to end my career in who knows what third or fourth level division,” Buffon added. “I am a competitive animal and I wouldn’t be able to live in that situation. I wouldn’t feel at ease.”

Buffon has been linked with a move to Liverpool, which could offer the former Italy captain the chance to win the Champions League — one of the few trophies missing from his glittering collection, which includes the 2006 World Cup. He’s appeared in three Champions League finals and lost them all.

“I said that I received very interesting offers,” said Buffon, when asked directly about a move to the English Premier League. “Next week, once everything has calmed down a little bit, I will decide what will be best for me.

“If I decide to continue it will be to fight for big things, because that’s what I live for.”

Buffon helped Juventus win a record-extending seventh straight Serie A on Sunday, four days after he led the Bianconeri to a fourth straight Italian Cup trophy.

It was the ninth Serie A title he won with Juventus. Two others were stripped from the club due to the Calciopoli scandal. Also as punishment, Juventus was relegated to Serie B but Buffon stayed and helped it win the second division and bounce straight back up.

Among his records for club and country is the longest time in Serie A without conceding a goal when he was unbeaten for 974 consecutive minutes in the 2015-16 season.

On Saturday, Buffon will make his 656th appearance for Juventus.

The captain’s armband, which Buffon has worn since Alessandro Del Piero’s departure in 2012, will be handed to another veteran, defender Giorgio Chiellini. Wojciech Szczesny will become Juve’s first-choice goalkeeper from next season.

Buffon was also Italy captain until he retired from the national team in November when the Azzurri lost a World Cup playoff to Sweden.

He recently returned for friendlies and was expected to bid the national team goodbye for good in another friendly on June 4 against the Netherlands at Allianz Stadium after 176 appearances for Italy.

However, he insisted he has played his last match for his country and doesn’t need a special swansong.

“I don’t need other shows of affection,” Buffon added. “Italy already has great, young goalkeepers and its right they should get their own experience.”

Watch FA Cup Final Chelsea Vs. Manchester United Live Stream: England’s ‘Other’ Big Event, Start Time, Preview

Not everyone will be tuned in to the Royal Wedding on Saturday, because that’s also the day of the biggest single event in English domestic football — the FA Cup Final.

The Royal Wedding won’t be the only big event in England on Saturday, which is also the day of the biggest single event in domestic soccer there — the FA Cup Final, which this year pits Premier League giants Chelsea against Manchester United in the latest edition of the prestigious tournament that was first contested in 1872. And like the Royal Wedding, the 2018 FA Cup Final will be available to watch via online live stream once the game kicks off from Wembley Stadium.

The match will also mark the 180th meeting between the two venerable English clubs, who first squared off in 1905. Manchester United has the best of the 113-year rivalry, winning 77 of the matchups, while Chelsea has 53 wins with 49 games drawn.

Chelsea, 2017’s Premier League title-winners, will be making their second consecutive FA Cup Final appearance, after falling to Arsenal 2-1 in last year’s championship match. Chelsea will be making their 12th FA Cup Final appearance overall, with seven wins. For

Manchester United, Saturday’s Final will be the 20th in the team’s history. A win will tie United with Arsenal for the all-time lead with 13 FA Cups. Manchester United last won the cup in 2015, with a defeat of Crystal Palace.

To find out how to watch a live stream of the 2018 FA Cup Final as Chelsea takes on Manchester United, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff
is scheduled for 5 p.m. British Summer Time at 90,000-seat Wembley Stadium in London, England, on Saturday, May 19. In the United States, that start time will be noon Eastern Daylight Time, 9 a.m. Pacific.

Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte may be managing for his job in the FA Cup Final — despite the fact that he led the team to the Premier League title just last year, which also happened to be his first season at Stamford Bridge after two seasons at the helm of the national team in his native Italy.

But the Blues hobbled to a disappointing fifth-place finish in the 2017-2018 campaign, finishing five points out of a UEFA Champions League place.

“Sometimes you can win but the club decides to sack you anyway because they have a reason to,” Conte said on Friday.

Cannes Film

Attracting some of the sparkliest names from Hollywood and beyond, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Cannes was just an annual sartorial Saturnalia.

In fact, for those who subscribe to the aforementioned understanding, it’s the world’s most prestigious film festival, previewing films of all genres and awarding those which a carefully-selected jury deems most noteworthy.

However, much like its ceremonial counterparts, Cannes is as much of a celebration for film as it is for fashion, with celebrities taking every opportunity to showcase their finest glad rags for the various screenings and premiers that make up the glitzy 11-day-long affair.

This year’s proceedings have already made headlines that transcend the event’s cinematic parameters, with Kristen Stewart removing her high heels on the red carpet in protest of the event’s strict dress code, which supposedly dictates that all female guests wear heels.

Meanwhile, in less subversive spheres, models, actors and icons have sashayed their way down the infamous Cannes red carpets in an array of designs as glamourous as their surroundings.

From Kendall Jenner ruffling feathers in a sheer, and ironically rather feathery-looking, Schiaparelli gown to the inimitable Helen Mirren’s medieval velvet ensemble, see why the French Riviera is alive with the snappings of sartorial splendour by ogling over the best-dressed celebrities at Cannes so far in the gallery above

Cannes 2018: Cate Blanchett condemns lack of female filmmakers at women’s march

The shadow of Harvey Weinstein, the film producer who has been accused of rape and sexual harassment by scores of women, still hovers over Hollywood and global film industry. In Cannes Film Festival 2018, the jury is presided over by actor Cate Blanchett, who opened the festival with a call for equality and decried the lack of female filmmakers.

At women’s march on the steps of Palais, the venue of the festival, she gave an emotional speech with 82 women, indicating the 82 female filmmakers who have climbed the steps of Palais. Yes, in the history of Cannes Film Festival, only 82 women directors have been allowed in the festival’s central theatre.

She said, “Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of the industry says otherwise. As women, we all face our own unique challenges, but we stand together on these stairs today as a symbol of our determination and commitment to progress.

We are writers, producers, directors, actresses, cinematographers, talent agents, editors, distributors, sales agents and all involved in the cinematic arts. And we stand today in solidarity with women of all industries.”

Cate Blanchett was flanked by Ava DuVernay, Salma Hayek, Kristen Stewart among others. Patty Jenkins and Marion Cotillard were also in attendance. Blanchett next talked about the need for parity at workplaces and the expectations women have with the governments and society. She said, “We expect our institutions to actively provide parity and transparency in their executive bodies and provide safe environments in which to work.

We expect our governments to make sure that the laws of equal pay for equal work are upheld. We demand that our workplaces are diverse and equitable so that they can best reflect the world in which we actually live. A world that allows all of us in front and behind the camera, all of us, to thrive shoulder to shoulder with our male colleagues.”

Hollywood was buffeted by accusations of rape and sexual misconduct against some of the most prominent personalities of showbiz like Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey. These allegations launched the Me Too and Time’s Up movements that asked for gender equality and an end to discrimination at workplaces.

Atletico Madrid vs. Marseille final preview, live stream info, TV channel: How to watch Europa League on TV, stream online

The Europa League final is almost here. In Lyon, France, French club Marseille takes on Atletico Madrid. Atleti got by Arsenal in the semifinals but Marseille was taken to extra time by Red Bull Salzburg, scoring in the extra session to move on.

Here’s how you can watch the match, what’s on the line and our prediction:
How to watch

When: Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. ET
TV: FS1
Stream: fuboTV (try for free)
Follow: CBS Sports App
What’s at stake?

A major trophy, but for Marseille even more. They have two ways to qualify for next season’s Champions League — by winning this tournament or by finishing third in France, where they are currently fourth and a point behind. Atletico Madrid is already qualified for next season’s Champions League. There’s a lot on the line in this one, more so for the French side, but both teams will be determined to potentially lift their only trophy of the season.
Prediction

Atletico Madrid’s defense is just out of this world, and it’s challenging to see how Marseille can win this even with Dimitri Payet and Florian Thauvin in fine form. But the proud French club is playing in its home country, so it should have plenty of support. But Atletico, in the end, is too sharp to lose. Atletico 2, Marseille 0.
