Chelsea and Arsenal have two different objectives for wanting to win the FA Cup.

For the Blues, the Chelsea squad will be aiming for a win to end the season with a trophy and mark what will be a successful season, after sealing a top four place.

For Arsenal, it’s not only an opportunity to end the season with a trophy but to also qualify for a place in Europe.

Arsenal finished the season in 8th, and a win on Sunday will make them qualify for the Europa League.

Meanwhile, speaking ahead of the FA Cup final, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed that he doesn’t care about the pressure that’s on the Arsenal team.

“I’m not sure what pressure it adds in terms of whether it becomes a positive or a negative,” he said.

“That’s their problem as far as I’m concerned and it’s a good problem for them because they can get into Europe via the game.

“We must make sure that our mentality, whether we’ve qualified for the Champions League or not last week, is not affected negatively in any way from that. This is a game that means a lot to us. It means everything to us.”
