London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea go head-to-head at Wembley this weekend in the FA Cup final and talkSPORT will bring you the blockbuster match live.

Managers Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard have both done superbly well to get their teams to the final and to have the chance of silverware.

Arsenal, who have won the cup a record 13 times, produced a stunning display in the semi-final to knockout holders Manchester City.

The rivals will both be eager to end their campaigns on a high with glory at an empty Wembley.

They have been through a transition period this term and winning the cup would be a coup for either manager.
