Paddy Power
The two London rivals go head to head at Wembley on Saturday looking for a big send off for the season. Chelsea have already landed the Premier League title of course and are favourites going into the big game. They have an opportunity to land the domestic double for just the second time in their history and with just one defeat in their last twelve competitive games against the Gunners, Antonio Conte’s men are going to be hard to stop. But Arsenal have won two of the last three FA Cup finals and they have won their last six matches at Wembley, so they enjoy themselves there. After missing out on the top four this season in the Premier League, they have a chance to save their season with a bit of silverware. Will this be Arsene Wenger’s sign off as well after his long tenure with the club? It’s going to be a tough afternoon with Chelsea having won each of their last four FA Cup Final appearances.

Coral offer FA Cup Final Yellow Card to be shown at 8/1 enhanced odds

Coral
London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal aren’t exactly the best of friends and the two of them will meet up at Wembley on Saturday in the 2017 FA Cup Final. They traded home wins in the Premier League meetings this season, but Chelsea, of course, won the league whereas Arsenal failed to get into the top four. Chelsea have won each of their last four FA Cup Final appearances and have won 9 of 11 major finals under the ownership of Roman Abramovich. Will Antonio Conte’s men be able to power their way through to a domestic double, for just the second time in their history? Arsenal stand in their way and they have won two of the last three editions of the FA Cup and have won the trophy in each of their last five appearances in the final. They have lost just one of their last 22 games in the competition in a fine record, so they have some pretty strong pedigree going for themselves. They have also won each of their last six games played at Wembley as well. After the disappointment of their league finish, will they be able to put a little shine on their season by going out and winning the title for a record 13th time? Register an account with bookmaker Coral and take 8/1 enhanced odds on a yellow card being shown in the match (was 1/50).

Arsenal v Chelsea FA Cup Betting Tips

Arsenal have taken a hit in their back line with the loss of Laurent Koscielny through suspension. His appeal against a red card, given out for his foul on Everton's Enner Valencia on the weekend, failed and therefore is out of the game, while Gabriel is definitely out injured, and Shkodran Mustafi is a big doubt for them. So they won't be at their strongest at the back for the FA Cup Final. The Gunners did take that league win over Chelsea back in September, a 3-0 hammering dished out by them at the Emirates. But that has been their only victory in their last twelve competitive meetings with the Blues. The Gunners have actually failed to score in seven of their last ten games against Chelsea in all competitions. Chelsea to win to nil at Bet365 is a quote of 2/1. But Arsenal did finish their Premier League campaign quite strongly. Arsenal are on a five-match winning streak at the moment and they collected three clean sheets in that sequence. Both teams to score in the match, with Arsenal having scored at least two goals in each of their last five games, is trading at a price of 3/4 with Bet365 . The Gunners have Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud both at 2/1 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market. The last time that these two met in the FA Cup was back in the 2009 semi-finals, which the Blues won 2-1. The head to head from FA Cup meetings is actually being led by Arsenal 8-5 with six draws. The Gunners made it through to the final with a somewhat easy run, beating Preston in the third round, then crushing Southampton in the fourth round before going up against non-league sides Sutton and the Lincoln City. Their big win was a 2-1 victory over Manchester City against the odds to put themselves back at Wembley. Arsenal have won two of the last three editions of the FA Cup. Chelsea’s last FA Cup title came back in 2011/12 with a win over Liverpool in the final. Antonio Conte led the Blues to the Premier League title with a record number of wins and now they turn their focus to the FA Cup Final. They have had a somewhat tougher route in the latter stages, having gone past Peterborough, Brentford and Wolves before running into Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter final. The Blues edged a tight 1-0 win there before facing the in-form Spurs in the semi-final. Despite having left out Diego Costa and Eden Hazard from the starting line up, the Blues romped to a 4-2 victory. By and large, it is Chelsea running with the head to head form and they will go into the final as strong favourites. They have been scoring heavily recently and over 2.5 goals in the game at Bet365 is a price of 4/5. Chelsea are currently running on a seven-match winning streak in all competitions and all but one of those games have seen at least three goals. The Blues have totalled 24 goals in their last seven games so having the scoring power to destroy the Gunners. Diego Costa is 5/6 outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, with Eden Hazard at 6/5 and Pedro at 2/1. Michy Batshuayi, who scored Chelsea's Premier League title-winning goal is a 13/10 option with Bet365, who netted a brace against Spurs in the semi final, at 11/5. They are stacked with scoring potential. This will actually be just the second FA Cup final between these two, the previous one happening in the 2001/02 season, which Arsenal won 2-1 thanks largely to the famous Ray Parlour strike from 25-yards.

If Arsenal win this, they would land their 13th trophy, moving them one ahead of Manchester United on 12.

If it is the Blues who are triumphant, then it would move them to eight FA Cup trophies alongside Tottenham (third overall).

Whoever wins on Saturday, it will mean that seven of the last 11 FA Cups will have been won by either Arsenal or Chelsea.

Arsene Wenger would set a record for most FA Cup wins as a manager (7, currently on 6 with George Ramsay) if Arsenal win on Saturday.

Chelsea haven’t lost any of their last four FA Cup Finals, all of which have been contested at Wembley (2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012). Arsenal were the last team to beat them in an FA Cup Final.

The eventual Premier League champions have also gone on to win the FA Cup on 11 of the 18 occasions they’ve played in the final, most recently Chelsea in 2010.

Arsenal are on a six match winning streak at Wembley, their best run at the ground (new or old).

Arsenal v Chelsea FA Cup Betting Odds

Chelsea 4/5, Draw 3/1, Arsenal 15/4

Arsenal v Chelsea FA Cup Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues are just flying at the moment and Arsenal still have vulnerabilities there at the back which the dynamic Chelsea can expose. The Blues just have too much depth, as they showed in not starting Costa and Hazard in the semi final against Spurs to go out and celebrate by beating Arsenal and completing the double.

Man City 2/5 favourites to sign Tottenham’s Kyle Walker

Premier League Betting
England full-back Kyle Walker had a pretty fine season with Tottenham, but towards the end of the term he was finding himself on the bench and that, of course, sparked rumours that he could be leaving in the summer. He has continuously been linked with a £40m Tottenham departure. Manchester City are 2/5 favourites at Ladbrokes to capture him over the summer and with his pace and attacking dynamic, he would look a pretty solid fit for Pep Guardiola's team. He’s hard working, he is very quick and he likes to play up in the final third of the pitch whenever he can and he would slot right into the City side without any issues probably. But Chelsea and Bayern Munich are reportedly on the hunt as well for the England youngster. Chelsea have moved into a position of 3/1 second-favourites to land Walker over the summer and that, of course, wouldn’t exactly be a crowd pleaser with the Tottenham faithful. Bayern Munich are right there in the market at a quote of 7/2. Chelsea, of course, have the extra burden of UEFA Champions League football next season and will need to strengthen their squad and that would be a quality signing for them. With Chelsea's three across the back, Walker would be a good fit there as he would naturally have the freedom to get forward when he could. Walker found himself on the bench for four of Tottenham's last ten league games, after rumours that he had clashed with boss Mauricio Pochettino on the training ground earlier in the year. Bayern Munich are on the prowl reportedly too as they look to replace Philip Lahm, who announced his retirement after 14 seasons with the club.

Paddy Power pays out to three customers on John Terry’s 26th-minute substitution

Bookmaker News
One of the big moments of the final Premier League weekend was John Terry’s 26th-minute substitution in his final league appearance for Chelsea on the weekend. The pre-planned substitution, which happened in the 26th minute to match Terry’s squad number, has seen bookmaker Paddy Power pay out to three punters on the specific time of Terry’s substitution in the match. It has been reported that Paddy Power accepted the wagers on Terry being substituted between 26:00 and 26:59 in Sunday's Premier League clash with Sunderland. Sunderland was aware of the plans, which had all been the idea of John Terry himself. Paddy Power said in a statement to Press Association Sport on Monday: "We replied to a novelty request for odds on John Terry's substitution - one of hundreds on the Chelsea game - and fair play to the three punters who were on at odds of 100-1. Two of the customers won £2,500 and £1,000 respectively while the other was a punter who attended the game and predicted the outcome, making an enquiry with Paddy Power before placing a £25 bet on the phone. The punter, who wished to remain anonymous stated’: "We thought maybe 10-1, 15-1 at most as there was a precedent set (by Drogba's substitution).” While one of the other punters said "I was surprised the odds were that high." Now the FA has set about asking betting companies involved in any payout on John Terry’s substation, for information on bets that they received for it. FA rules on match fixing state: "Fixing is arranging in advance the result or conduct of a match or competition or any event within a match or competition. "Fixing is prohibited and is treated very seriously." There has been no suspicion over John Terry, of Chelsea for the substitution, as it was just a gesture made by them to give their long-standing captain a big send off. There was a precedent for this as Chelsea literally carried Didier Drogba off the pitch in his final game for them, which was actually midway through the first half of a game against Sunderland a couple of years ago. Terry’s 26th-minute substitution was all over social media prior to the game, being forecast by the Chelsea fanzine editor.

Chelsea v Sunderland Predictions & Betting Odds – 21st May 2017

Chelsea
Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Preview - Premier League 21st May 3.00pm Chelsea sent out a much-changed side in a midweek win over Watford at Stamford Bridge. The victory kept their great stretch of form going though and they will celebrate the end of the season with the trophy at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. It will be bittersweet though because it will also be a farewell party for John Terry in Premier League action for the club as well. The relegated Sunderland are just going to be there to make up the numbers and aren’t likely to spoil the party. Over at Betfair, you can take some control of your sports accumulators with the Acca Edge product that they have. Just build yourself a qualifying accumulator with them and then you can add the Acca Edge to it. This means then that for a slight reduction in odds on the bet, you will have insurance on it, so if just one leg of the wager lets you down, you will get your lost stake refunded as cash from them. Go and register an account with online betting site Betfair and earn £30 worth of free bets as a welcome bonus from them.

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Tips

Chelsea will be having a party on Sunday, regardless of the result in his match. They will be getting their hands on the trophy and they will be celebrating the final league game in a Chelsea shirt for John Terry too. Chelsea are on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League at the moment, keeping a clean sheet in three of those. Chelsea to win to nil at Betfair is a price of 4/7. The Blues won 1-0 at Sunderland earlier in the camping, but a Chelsea 2-0 correct score at Betfair is trading at a quote of 9/2, the shortest priced option in the market. Antonio Conte fielded an understrength side in their match against Watford in the week and Michy Batshuayi is an 8/11 poke in the anytime goalscorer market to continue his scoring streak, with Diego Costa at 8/15. John Terry is 5/2 to net in his last league game for the Blues. Chelsea are on a two-match winning streak at home against the Black Cats, and the Blues have won 16 of their 18 Premier League home games this season. Over 2.5 goals at Betfair is a price of 8/13. Chelsea have won 20 of their last 24 Premier League games against Sunderland (D1 L3), although two of those losses have come in the last six contests. There has been at least three goals in each of the last four between these at Stamford Bridge and Sunderland have netted in each of their last four visits to Stamford Bridge and both teams to score at Sky Bet is a quote of 5/4. Chelsea have scored at least three goals in four of their last five league matches now as well, so there should be goals. The Black Cats were awful in a home defeat against Swansea last weekend and while they offered up some resistance at Arsenal in midweek, they ultimately slumped again to another 2-0 loss. Sunderland's away record this season in the top flight reads W3 D1 L14 and they won’t have a lot to put into this game. Sunderland have scored in just one of their last six away games and in four of their last five home and away in the league. It’s likely Jermain Defoe will be playing his last game for them and he is a price of 15/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Black Cats have lost a total of 22 Premier League games against the Blues; only Manchester United have defeated them more times (23).

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Odds

Chelsea 1/7, Draw 13/2, Sunderland 16/1

Chelsea v Sunderland Predictions

Chelsea home win: Worth backing the Blues to take the win but a flutter on both teams to score will have some appeal because Chelsea won’t be trying that hard to win the game. As routine as you like for the Blues, on an afternoon which form them, is really just all about what happens after the final whistle.
