Arsenal vs Chelsea FA Cup final betting preview

Premier League champions Chelsea will aim to complete a domestic double on Saturday, as they face Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley. Arsenal will be looking to win the FA Cup title for a third time in the last four seasons, to end a disappointing season on a fair note.

The Gunners come into the match on the back of five consecutive wins, which was not enough to help the club finish at least fourth and qualify for the UEFA Champions League, as they finished in fifth place, one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

For Chelsea, they come into this game on a seven match winning streak after setting a new record of 30 Premier League wins in a single season, reaching 93 points following a 5-1 victory over Sunderland in the last game of the 2016-17 Premier League season.

Arsene Wenger could win his third FA Cup in four seasons by beating Chelsea. Should Arsenal win, he would set a record for most FA Cup wins as a manager. Chelsea are (1.82) for the win, with the draw at (3.73) and Arsenal are out for the win at (4.31).

Arsenal managed a win over Chelsea in the Premier League back in September, beating the Blues 3-0, which was their only victory in their last twelve competitive meetings with their London rivals. Arsenal have failed to score in seven of their last ten matches against Chelsea in all competitions. Chelsea to win to nil at SportyBet is a quote of (2.99).

The Gunners have won their last five matches and picked up three clean sheets in those games. Both teams to score in the match is trading at a price of (1.65). The Gunners have Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud at (3.10) and (3.05) respectively in the SportyBet anytime goalscorer market.

Chelsea coach Conte says as a young coach he once asked Arsenal could he observe how they worked, but they were “too busy”. His team are priced at (1.82) on SportyBet to beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final on Saturday.

The last FA Cup meeting between Arsenal and Chelsea was in the 2009 semi-finals, which Chelsea won 2-1. Arsenal have won two of the last three editions of the FA Cup. A correct score of the same result comes at (8.43) on SportyBet.

The Blues won Tottenham 4-2 in the semi-final despite having left out Diego Costa and Eden Hazard from the starting line up, and with their head to head form going against Arsenal, they go into the final as strong favourites.

Chelsea have been scoring freely as of recent, and over 2.5 goals in this encounter at SportyBet, is a price of (1.74).

Winning the FA Cup would salvage the season a little bit, but that is going to be far from an easy task. Arsenal are priced to win at (4.31).

Chelsea have won each of their last seven games now in all competitions, and all except one of those matches have seen at least three goals. Chelsea have scored 24 goals in their last seven games, and so have enough firepower to overcome Arsenal.

Diego Costa is (1.90) outright favourite in the anytime goalscorer market, with Eden Hazard at (2.55) and Pedro at (3.15).

Michy Batshuayi, who netted Chelsea’s Premier League title-winning goal, as well as another goal against Spurs in the semi final is a (2.20) option with SportyBet to score in this tie.
