Arsenal vs Chelsea Prediction and Betting Preview 01 August 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 2-1
Arsenal vs Chelsea PredictionOverseeing a slow start to the 2019/2020 Premier League campaign, with Arsenal lying in the bottom half of the standings, erstwhile manager Unai Emery was booted out of the club just before Christmas. The club resolved that the Spanish manager wasn’t the chosen one, parting ways with him.
Match status: 2019/20 FA Cup
Venue: Wembley Stadium (London)
At the time, the future looked very bleak for the Gunners as they struggled to get victories on board, even against the weakest of oppositions. Delving into the market for a new head coach, Arsenal appointed former player Mikel Arteta to take over the reins.

The impact from the Spaniard was immediate, leading his favored club to consecutive wins in his first games at the Etihad Stadium. In fact, they managed to hold high-flying Chelsea to a thrilling 2-2 draw in a ballsy affair at Stamford Bridge at the time.

Finishing eighth on the log, the fans must have been delighted with Arteta’s exploits at the club. Now scheduled to take on archrivals Chelsea in an all-London FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday evening, Arsenal will be gunning for victory to secure some piece of silverware in a rather disappointing season.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Team News

With thirteen FA Cup titles to their name, Arsenal are clearly the most successful club in the oldest club competition in the world. They have somehow managed to turn the title to their birthright, lifting the club trophy every other season.

Following a horrendous Premier League campaign, Arteta and his boys will be looking to make up for their league disappointments with another FA Cup triumph. Surely, they will need to be at their best to stand any chances against red-hot Chelsea in this crucial game.

Pitted against defending champions Manchester City in the semifinals of the competition, the Gunners were expected to be swept aside with relative ease. Headed into the game as underdogs, Aubameyang’s brilliance was the difference between the two sides, the Gambian grabbing a brace to secure victory.

Meanwhile, Chelsea were to take on huge rivals Manchester United in the penultimate FA Cup fixture at the illustrious Wembley Stadium. Fielding his strongest squad, it was pretty obvious Lampard was placing huge importance on the competition.

Against a second-string Manchester United side, the Pensioners were always going to be favorites for the win. Aided by de Gea’s butterfingers, Chelsea took the Red Devils to the cleaners, posting a comprehensive 3-1 victory on the board to advance to the finals.

In truth, the Blues have taken us aback with their achievements this season. Prior to the season, they were faced with huge dilemmas off-the-pitch – a transfer embargo, loss of their star player Eden Hazard and appointment of juvenile head coach Frank Lampard.

Even with the odds highly stacked against them, Lampard made use of a rather poor side to achieve a top-four finish, even reaching the finals of the FA Cup. Regardless of the outcome of this fixture, the English gaffer deserves plaudits for the amazing work he has put in at the Bridge since his arrival.

Giroud and Pulisic have turned stars this season, causing opposition defenses troubles in recent weeks. Surely, the Gunners will be keeping tabs on these two as the referee gets things rolling on Saturday evening.

Injured or Suspended Players

Arsenal: Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli, Matteo Guendouzi, Mesut Ozil and Shkodran Mustafi.

Chelsea: Billy Gilmour, Ethan Ampadu and Abdul Rahman Baba.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Predictions

Taking league performances into context, Chelsea will be favorites to win this one. However, it is important to note that Arsenal have been outstanding in the FA Cup this season.

As such, the Gunners are likely to secure victory against the Blues. Expected to be hard-fought, Arsenal should have enough about themselves to clinch their 14th FA Cup title at the end of the ninety minutes.
