The Featured Three
Robert Pratley (@RJPJournalism): Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea (Arsenal to win on penalties)
This year’s showpiece event will feel odd, especially with no fans and a sterile atmosphere thanks to Coronavirus. Despite this, it’s still a trophy to be won and both Arteta and Lampard will be acutely aware of how important this game will for reviewing their debut seasons be when the dust settles. For Chelsea, you’d expect Giroud will be vital considering his excellent FA Cup record and a personal edge to get one over his former employers. For Arsenal, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may be looking to give fans one final hurrah before his potential departure. There will be goals as both defences are porous at best, and the battle will be won and lost with the wing-backs in my opinion. I’m not sure Chelsea have the edge here. Sadly, I can see a repeat of 2017’s result.

This will undoubtedly be the biggest game of Frank Lampard’s managerial career, and a massive test for both the managers and the players. While we have taken 4 out of 6 points off Arsenal this season, anything can happen in the FA Cup Final, and it is going to be a very tough afternoon. Chelsea need to stay loyal to the back three, and with their excellent form and brilliant performances recently, it should be another blue day at Wembley and a ninth FA Cup win.

Arsenal have a habit of turning up at Wembley, but Frank looks to be building something special. If we match them with a three man defence then I’m confident we can keep Aubameyang quiet. Whilst I have little doubt that we will be able to create some real chances of more.
