The Blues are up against one of their fiercest rivals Arsenal in Saturday’s FA Cup final and they will hope to defeat the Emirates Stadium outfits.
The West London club has failed to defeat the Gunners in two FA Cup final matches and it remains unknown if they can eventually put an end to the jinx.
As for the Gunners, they will hope to make it three win in three finals against their derby rivals tomorrow.
It should be recalled that Unai Emery’s Arsenal were defeated by Chelsea in last year’s Europa League final in what was Antonio Conte’s last season as Chelsea boss.
However, both sides have changed their respective managers and we are expecting a major cracker between Arteta and frank Lampard side.
Arsenal ended this season with an impressive 2-0 victory over Watford last weekend but that didn’t stop the fact that they had a season to forget.
Nonetheless, they have had quite an impressive run in this year’s FA Cup competition having defeated Manchester City 2-0 to get to this stage of the world’s oldest football fiesta.
The players are definitely in high spirit ahead of the must—win encounter against Frank Lampard’s side who have been in consistent form all through the season.
The Stamford bridge outfit overcame Manchester United’s hurdle to qualify for tomorrow’s encounter as they thrashed the Red Devils 3-1.
They ended this season on a winning note and they eventually qualified for next season’s Champions League playoff spot.
Having scored five goals in their last two matches in all competitions, the Blues are expected to find the back of Martinez’s net later tomorrow as Giroud is tipped to start.
What is at stake?
Obviously, the prize – FA Cup trophy—is at stake and all the players will give their all to win it for their respective team.
However, the encounter is more than the trophy to the Gunners who need to win the game to qualify for next season’s Champions League campaign.
Victory for the North London side means they will take part in 2020-21 European competition. Hence, they have all to play for.
