Chelsea look to end season with cup win

24/05/2017

Chelsea take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday, aiming to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet this season!

The Blues claimed the Premier League a few weeks ago with a win over West Brom, before breaking the league wins record with 30 victories, but Antonio Conte and his team will want the double.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have had their worst league season in over 20 years. The last time the Gunners finished outside the top four was in the 1995/96 season.

It means Arsene Wenger's side won't compete in the Champions League next season.

Arsenal fans and players now turn to the FA Cup as the last piece of silverware left.

However, to claim it, they have to beat Chelsea.

The Blues beat Arsenal 3-1 when they last met at Stamford Bridge, while the 3-0 loss Chelsea suffered at the Emirates this season forced Antonio Conte to switch to a 3-5-3 formation.

Since then, the Blues have been on fire, equalling the Gunners' record Premier League win streak and winning 30 games in the season, another record!

Even though the two sides share 19 FA Cups between them, they have only faced each other in the FA Cup once before.

Arsenal had the best of that match, beating the Blues 2-0 to lift the 2001/02 trophy, but Chelsea will be confident going into Saturday's fixture.

The last time the Blues faced Arsenal in any FA Cup fixture, the Blues won 2-1 to go into the 2009 final thanks to Didier Drogba's late winner.

Chelsea won the trophy that season, beating Everton 2-1 in the final, and won it again the following year.

Blues fans will be hoping for a similar result when Chelsea meet Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday!
