Bayern Munich defender Boateng expects ultra-defensive Chelsea

Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng expects a defensive Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

Former Manchester City defender Boateng, 23, accused the Blues of "barricading themselves" in their own penalty area as they saw off ­Barcelona in the semis.

Boateng, who left City in a £12m deal last ­summer, said: "There is no special recipe for beating Chelsea.

"But I don't believe they will play the ­Champions League final the same way as they did against Barcelona.

"They won't use all 11 men to ­barricade ­themselves in their own ­penalty area. I'll leave it up to our scouts to draw up a plan.
