Arsenal and Chelsea will face each other in the FA Cup this weekend.
Former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted on Betvictor.com that Chelsea will win against Arsenal in the FA Cup this weekend.
Chelsea will take on Premier League rivals Arsenal in the final of the prestigious cup competition at the Wembley Stadium in London.
Owen believes that the Blues will emerge victorious in the battle between the two London clubs on Saturday evening.
“Irrespective of the result at Wembley, seven of the last 11 Cup Finals will have been won by Arsenal or Chelsea after Saturday’s game while Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger is one game away from becoming the most successful manager in the competition’s history,” Owen wrote on Betvictor.com. “Wenger has currently won the competition six times – a seventh would indeed be a magnificent achievement.
“That said I can’t get away from Chelsea. The Blues’ 3-0 mauling at the Emirates back in September was the catalyst for Antonio Conte to switch from a 4-4-2 to a back three with Victor Moses and Marco Alonso successfully employed as wingbacks. The results have been quite spectacular.”
Chelsea will indeed head into the FA Cup final as favourites, and Antonio Conte’s side will almost certainly score a goal.
The Blues won the Premier League title this season, and the London club will be keen on adding the FA Cup to their trophy-haul for the 2016-17 campaign.
