The Football Association Cup final is not far away now and it’s around the time everybody is deciding which team to put their money on. This year’s final will see London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea face off. Chelsea who won this year’s Barclay’s Premier League this year are the clear favorites to win this game, they’ve had an incredible season and we’re sure that they’d love to top it off with another trophy.
This is more important for Arsenal who finished outside of the top 4 for the first time in 20 years and has had a very disappointing season. Many Arsenal fans are saying this is a make or break game for manager Arsene Wenger who has been at the club for nearly 2 decades now. Fans have been upset with how the team has been performing for years on end now and this season has been the pinnacle of their problems. Although is Wenger can beat the League Champions and local rivals Chelsea in the Cup final it is more than likely he will be offered a new contract with the club. Whether or not he decides to stay we will have to wait and see.
Arsenal hasn’t had the best run of luck before this game either, their most important defender Laurent Koscielny has been banned due to receiving a red card in the last game of the season against Everton. Another regular first team defender Gabriel was also injured and ruled out for up to Eight weeks. Their third option at center back Mustafa also managed to pick up an injury in this game with a suspected concussion. Although it is expected he will play in the game. But these injuries combined will make the game much harder for Arsenal!
