London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea clash in the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening. The two sides have a rich history in the competition and I'm tipping an entertaining clash at the home of English football.

Arsenal Form & News


Arsenal limped to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League, a disappointing result for the Gunners. Mikel Arteta was appointed as the club's boss in December, but needs more time to rebuild the side.

Arsenal took down champions Liverpool 2-1 at home before a 2-0 victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals. They suffered a 1-0 loss at Aston Villa before a 3-2 home victory over now-relegated Watford.

Two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a Kieran Tierney strike were enough to see off a spirited, yet doomed, Watford.

Goalkeeper Bernd Leno is injured alongside defenders Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and Shkodran Mustafi. Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli is also injured and Reiss Nelson is doubtful.

Midfielder Matteo Guendouzi and playmaker Mesut Ozil have fallen out of favour and could be shipped out of the club. 

Chelsea Form & News


Chelsea clinched fourth in the Premier League to guarantee UEFA Champions League football for the 2020/21 campaign. The Blues are on a great run of form, having won 10 of their last 13 matches in all competitions.

Frank Lampard’s charges won 1-0 against Norwich after enjoying 68% possession, 22-2 shots, and 3.05-0.06 expected goals. They then won 3-1 against Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-finals.

Chelsea lost 5-3 against Liverpool at Anfield, but bounced back with a 2-0 home victory over Wolves. Mason Mount and Olivier Giroud scored the goals.

Defenders Fikayo Tomori and Ethan Ampadu are injured alongside midfielders N'Golo Kanté and Billy Gilmour.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Head to Head


Arsenal hold a 68-60 advantage over Chelsea with 52 draws in 180 meetings. Chelsea took down Arsenal 4-1 in the UEFA Europa League final last season.

The Blues picked up a 2-1 win at the Emirates in the Premier League this season, before playing out a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Odds


Chelsea are priced at 2.20 to win the final, while Arsenal are available at 3.40. A draw pays 3.40.

Arsenal have seen over 2.5 goals in five of their last six meetings with Chelsea, which is my best bet at 1.95.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Match Up


Arsenal and Chelsea both have attackers in form. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored seven goals in his last eight appearances for Arsenal, while Olivier Giroud has scored six goals in his last seven appearances for Chelsea. This is set up to be a match for the attackers.
