Arsenal v Chelsea Betting Preview  

Arsenal are undefeated in 28 of their last 31 FA Cup matches

Arsenal have won three of their last four, including wins over Liverpool and Manchester City in that time. The Gunners ended their season with a 3-2 home win over relegated Watford. As a result, they finished 8th in the Premier League standings with a W14 D14 L10 record. As to the FA Cup, they knocked out Leeds, Bournemouth, Portsmouth, Sheff UTD and Man City en route to the final. If Arsenal lose this game then Wolves will clinch a spot in the Europa League next season. An Arsenal win would see the Gunners clinch their spot in the Europa league.

Shkodran Mustafi will not feature again until October after injuring his hamstring in the semi-final. As a result, Mikel Arteta has to decide between Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac as one of three centre-backs alongside Rob Holding and David Luiz. Up front, Nicolas Pepe should start as right winger, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left side and Alexandre Lacazette as central forward. Gabriel Martinelli, Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari are sideline, while Bernd Leno is not 100% fit and will not start on Saturday.

Chelsea are unbeaten in the last three meetings between the two sides

Chelsea wrapped up a Champions League berth on the final day of the Premier League, courtesy of a 2-0 home win over Wolves that helped them to secure a 4th spot in the table. They had a faultless FA Cup campaign, beating Nottingham Forest, Hull City, Liverpool, Leicester and Man UTD. The Blues have scored at least twice in 11 of their last 14 games in all competitions but their defensive solidity has been suspect this season. As to direct encounters, 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.

Willian is set to leave Chelsea this summer and is likely to be benched. Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic are expected to flank Olivier Giroud, who is above Tammy Abraham in the pecking order as things stand. In the middle of the park, N'Golo Kantè has returned to training but he is not ready to start such a big game. As consequence, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic will retain their berth. Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has been dropped for the final Premier League game of the season and should not be recalled.

Probable Line-ups     

Arsenal (3-4-3): Martinez; Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Chelsea (4-3-3): Caballero; Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Alonso; Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount; Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic, Giroud
