Arsenal and Chelsea will collide in the FA Cup final tomorrow. Who will come out on top?
The Blues won the Premier League title in style under the management of Antonio Conte and they should be considered favorites to beat the Gunners in the FA Cup as well.
The North Londoners failed to finish in the top four for the first time under Arsene Wenger and a defeat will put more pressure on the French boss.
As far as the key players are concerned, Alexis Sanchez and Diego Costa could play their last games for the respective clubs and they are our stars to watch.
Arsenal – Alexis Sanchez
The Chilean international has been Arsenal’s best player in the current season. In 38 league games, he scored 24 times and also set up 11 more. Overall, in 50 appearances (all competitions), he has netted 29 times and provided 19 assists.
Chelsea have been solid at the back and Alexis will likely be the major threat tomorrow. Can he further improve his stats? We shall see.
Chelsea – Diego Costa
The Spanish striker perhaps waved goodbye to the Chelsea supporters in the last PL game of the season vs Sunderland. He played a pivotal role in helping Chelsea win the ultimate prize.
In 35 league appearances, the former Atletico Madrid center forward directly contributed in no fewer than 28 goals (20 goals and 8 assists). He is renowned for bullying defenders and Arsenal’s defense is already weak without key first choice defender Koscielny, who is suspended for the fixture.
Prediction – Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea
