Arsenal Preview – Can the Gunners beat the Blues in another FA Cup final?

After finishing in a lowly eighth place in the Premier League, Arsenal’s only route into Europe next season is by winning the FA Cup on Saturday. The Gunners had a pretty forgettable league campaign, picking up just 56 points.

Despite their poor Premier League results, Arsenal have been solid in the FA Cup this term. After beating the likes of Leeds United, Bournemouth and Portsmouth in the early rounds, the north Londoners edged past fellow Premier League side Sheffield United in the last eight, winning 2-1 at Bramall Lane.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Against all odds in the semi-final against holders Manchester City, Mikel Arteta’s men caused a big upset by getting a 2-0 win and progressing to the final. Their defence was exceptional, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang did the damage at the other end, netting both goals against Pep Guardiola’s City.

Arsenal are the underdogs, but can Arteta guide the Gunners to a 14th FA Cup trophy this Saturday?

Chelsea Preview – Blues to end fine season with FA Cup success?

Frank Lampard, who was a legend as a player at Stamford Bridge, has had an excellent first season as manager of Chelsea. Securing UEFA Champions League football at the Bridge for next term would have been the ultimate goal at the start of the season, and the Blues passed that test with flying colours in the end.

Winning the FA Cup will be the icing on the cake for Chelsea. The west London outfit are also in this season’s Champions League, although they head to the Allianz Stadium 3-0 down to German champions Bayern Munich. Nevertheless, they still have a lot to play for this season.

Lampard’s boys beat EFL Championship sides Nottingham Forest and Hull City before seeing off Premier League champions Liverpool in the last 16 of this season’s FA Cup. They then edged past Leicester City 1-0 at the King Power Stadium in the quarter-final.

In-form Manchester United were waiting at Wembley in the semi, with efforts from Olivier Giroud and Mason Mount and a Harry Maguire own goal giving the Blues a comfortable 3-1 win.

Chelsea have been superb at times this season – can they cap off an excellent campaign by winning the 2019-20 FA Cup?


Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Advice

Arsenal became the record winners of the FA Cup when Arsene Wenger’s men beat Antonio Conte’s troops in the 2017 final. Overall, the Gunners have 13 FA Cups to their name, with Chelsea sitting on eight. The Blues’ last FA Cup triumph came in 2018, beating Man Utd 1-0 at Wembley thanks to an Eden Hazard penalty.


Key Facts – Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tip

  • The last FA Cup meeting between the two came in the 2017 final, which Arsenal won 2-1
  • Chelsea have won ten of their last 13 league and cup matches
  • Seven goals were netted in the two Premier League games this season, with the Blues taking four points


Both Premier League meetings between Arsenal and Chelsea this season were tight and tense affairs, and this final could be very similar. Chelsea inflicted the first defeat on Arteta, coming from behind with two late goals to win 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium back in December. A month later, the pair drew 2-2 in a thriller at Stamford Bridge.

As mentioned, Chelsea head to Wembley as the favourites with the bookies. FA Cup finals can be hard to predict, but the Blues will certainly fancy their chances in the national stadium. It could be close on the scoreline, so take a look at Chelsea to win by one goal at 11/4.

Ex-Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has been in red-hot form since returning to action from the enforced break back in June, netting seven goals in ten appearances, including four in his last four. The 33-year-old would love to get his name on the scoresheet against his former club on Saturday. Giroud is priced at 7/4 to notch anytime in the final.
