Chelsea are on course to win the Premier League as the Blues are ten points ahead. The Blues are also in the semifinals of the FA Cup, which could mean a double is highly possible for Chelsea.

Arsenal legend Martin keown has tipped Chelsea to win the FA Cup and do the double, although he believes the game against Tottenham in the FA Cup semifinal could pose a problem for Chelsea.

“After watching them in the Champions League this season you would say the (FA Cup) winner will not come from Arsenal or Manchester City,” Keown told the Daily Mail.

“Neither team offers a balance and you could have been talking about Arsenal the way City failed to defend their lead last night.

“People can point to Tottenham’s poor record at Wembley but they will only get better for the experience of playing there regularly. We had a bad experience playing there with Arsenal in the Champions League but it made the ground feel far more familiar when it came to playing there for England.

“Tottenham are the only team who have embarrassed Chelsea this season but it is difficult to look beyond Antonio Conte’s side.

“I won two doubles with Arsenal and there is a snowball effect with your league form and the FA Cup. You feel invincible.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
