Chelsea and Arsenal have a big FA Cup final clash at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening.

This game represents a great opportunity for both young managers Frank Lampard and Mikel Arteta to win a trophy this year.

Former Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who played for both Chelsea and Arsenal, has revealed that Arsenal need the win more than Chelsea.

Arsenal finished the season in 8th place, and the FA Cup win represents their only chance of playing in Europe next season.

“Arsenal need it more,” Fabregas told the Daily Telegraph.

“Chelsea basically every year has won a trophy, so it’s a different animal in this case.

“In terms of trophies, Arsenal needs it more and for confidence for next year and getting into Europe. ‘Chelsea are in the Champions League and Arsenal has nothing at the moment.”
