Arsenal and Chelsea lock horns at Wembley on Saturday afternoon for FA Cup honours in what is a maiden season for former players turned managers Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard.
The Spaniard won it back-to-back as a player in 2014 and 2015 while his English counterpart did so four times with the Blues (2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012) in a trophy-laden playing career.
Arsenal have triumphed in eight of their last nine FA Cup final matches, including each of the last six and are (3.45) with BetKing to make it a seventh.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have lost just two of their last 10 meetings with Arsenal (W3 D5) and are considered slight favourites at (2.15).
Callum Chambers (knee injury), Matteo Guendouzi, Pablo Mari (ankle injury), Gabriel Martinelli (knee injury) and Shkodran Mustafi (muscle injury) will not be at Arteta’s disposal for this final.
Willian (knock) and N’Golo Kante (thigh injury) are the only doubts for the Blues, otherwise, Lampard has a very strong and fit squad to choose from.
Arsenal are appearing in their 21st FA Cup final, more than any other side. Indeed, the Gunners have won the competition more often than any other side (13).
Chelsea are playing in their 14th FA Cup final, with this their seventh appearance in the showpiece since Wembley Stadium re-opened in 2007. The Blues have won seven of their last nine FA Cup finals, with both defeats in that time coming against Arsenal.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored three goals in just two FA Cup appearances, with the Gabonese striker netting both of the Gunners’ goals in their semi-final victory against Manchester City.
