De Gea will be in goal for Manchester United against Chelsea for the FA Cup final

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says David de Gea will start in goal for Manchester United in Saturday evening's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

De Gea is United's clear No 1, but Sergio Romero played in all the rounds before the semi-final, as well as last season's Europa League final victory and he had to sit out the 2-1 defeat of Spurs in last four after suffering a knee injury early on during Argentina's 6-1 friendly defeat to Spain on March 27.

He said "Romero was injured for a long, long time, he was injured for around two and something months. He didn't play some matches that normally would be his matches, his semi-final against Tottenham, a couple more matches before the final. He really only trained one week before the Watford match - and a bit more before - and that is the reason. It is not about trust, it is not about my confidence in him. Last season the Europa League final was a much more important match than this one, it was giving us the possibility to play Champions League and I played the Europa League final with Sergio, so it is not about confidence or no confidence, it is about the process of the last couple of months, since he had an important injury against Spain."
