Saturday Seven – Will Chelsea or Man Utd sign off with a trophy?

It’s another busy weekend of sport.

Here are our seven big questions to consider as the drama unfolds…

 

Who will win the FA Cup Final?

Both Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte will be looking to sign the season off by lifting the FA Cup at Wembley. With Chelsea stumbling badly towards the end of the season, can Utd take full advantage?

 

Can Celtic claim yet another domestic treble?

Can Brendan Rodgers make it a double hattrick? Only Motherwell can stop him claiming back-to-back Scottish domestic trebles as the Scottish Cup final takes place at Hampden Park.

 

Will Yates extend his Giro D’Italia lead?

Simon Yates

Move aside Chris Froome – another British rider is receiving all the plaudits at this year’s Giro D’Italia. Simon Yates will look to increase his stranglehold on the Pink Jersey this weekend but there are no guarantees as the riders face the treacherous Monte Zoncolan.

 

Is Gareth Southgate going to suffer any headaches?

With an FA Cup Final this weekend, the England manager may not know where to look if any heavy challenges go in on a number of his charges.

 

Can Nadal put a marker down before the French Open?

A shock defeat to Dominic Thiem last week in Barcelona left many tennis pundits questioning whether it was simply an off-day for the King of Clay, or if time is finally catching up with the unstoppable force that is Rafa Nadal on his favoured surface. The 31-year-old will be looking to silence the doubters by claiming the Italian Open title this weekend for a record eighth time.

 

Will there be managerial movement in the Premier League?

Mikel Arteta

It feels like the calm before the storm after a week of departures in the Premier League. Following Everton’s dismissal of Sam Allardyce and West Ham’s parting of the ways with David Moyes, three plum jobs are currently up for grabs in England’s top flight. Arsenal, Everton and West Ham are all now looking for new managers. Will there still be vacancies to fill by the start of next week?

 

Will Marseille bounce back from disappointment?

It was a disappointing finish to a memorable Europa League campaign for L’OM as they sunk to a comprehensive 3-0 defeat against Atlético Madrid in the final in Lyon, but they can still end their season on a high this weekend by beating Amiens and hoping Lyon slip up at home to Nice.

If that set of results happen, Marseille will avoid Europa League football altogether in 2018/19 for a tilt at the Champions League.
