The ex-Arsenal and French international is unbeaten at the Wembley since 2012, a period which dates back to his time with Arsenal when he won three FA Cups, including a 2-1 win over Chelsea in last year’s final.

Giroud told Sky Sports that he is aiming a fourth FA Cup win of his career against the Red Devils this weekend.
“At Arsenal, we weren’t listening to the people writing us off. Chelsea had an amazing season winning the title and they were very strong but we knew that anything could happen in the final.

“We were confident at Wembley. Arsenal had won it two times [in three seasons] before and it was a special place for us. I remember I came on as a substitute and crossed the ball with my first touch to Aaron and he scored. It was a good comeback and I felt pleased to win it for the third time. Now I am at Chelsea and I want to win the competition again.

“I don’t agree with the people that are saying that Manchester United are favourites. It is 50-50. Manchester United did well in the title race to finish runners-up but our games against them were equal. We won one and they won one. We know that we have the quality to win it.” Giroud said.

Giroud has scored twice for Chelsea in their run to the final, netting against Hull City in the last 16 and in the win over Southampton in the semi-finals.
