Arsenal vs Chelsea
England – FA Cup Final
Date: Saturday, 1 August 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Wembley Stadium.

English football’s longest-ever campaign comes to a conclusion on Saturday evening when Arsenal and Chelsea face off at Wembley in the 139th FA Cup final.  The Gunners knocked out holders Manchester City in the semis and are seeking a record-extending 14th triumph in the competition, three years on from their most recent success.  Chelsea, beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in that year’s final, have secured a top-four finish in the Premier League and could make this an exceptional first campaign for Frank Lampard.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Head-to-head (h2h)

Chelsea have won just one of their last 13 FA Cup games against Arsenal, beating them 2-1 in the 2009 semi-final, courtesy of goals from Florent Malouda and Didier Drogba.  Ramsey was the late hero for Arsenal in the 2017 final, while the 2002 showpiece will be best remembered for late strikes by Freddie Ljungberg and Ray Parlour in Cardiff.  In all competitions, however, the Blues have lost just two of their last 10 meetings with the Gunners.  This season’s league fixtures finished in a 2-1 victory for Chelsea in December – Jorginho and Tammy Abraham scoring late on – and a 2-2 draw six months ago.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Prediction

Both Premier League meetings this season saw three or more goals and a repeat of that is offered at 9/10 (1.90) with bet365 ahead of the FA Cup final on Saturday afternoon.
