Chelsea and Arsenal will face each other in the FA Cup finals today, and everyone is looking forward to a classic final from the bitter derby rivals.

BBC‘s Mark Lawrenson has tipped Chelsea to beat Arsenal, and he believes Antonio Conte will keep his team grounded and prepared for victory.

“We know Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is absolutely driven and he will be telling his players that they have one more game this season, and they have the chance to do something that hardly any players have achieved,” he told BBC Sport.

“I think that is how they will be approaching the game – to complete the job – and this Chelsea team is a machine that is very difficult to stop.

“Whatever the state of the game – whether they are holding on to a lead, or chasing a goal – they are ruthless.”

He then predicted that Chelsea will carry the day 1-0.
