Chelsea will face Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday. This game is a huge match for Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard, as it represents an opportunity to win a first ever title as a manager.

Chelsea are favourites for this game, and the Blues have won 10 of their last 13 games, with the Blues losing only thrice since the restart.

Arteta has hailed Chelsea’s form ahead of the game, but admits his side is focused ahead of the final.

On Arsenal’s status as underdogs, the Spaniard responded: “I don’t know. it’s a final.

“The only aim , the only focus, and all our energy is going to be on winning that trophy, it doesn’t matter where we start.

“Two big clubs playing each other, Chelsea are in a really good moment, they have come back so far this season where they are – they are playing a really good level. We are going to go for it.”
