Wenger seeks solace in quest for seventh FA Cup

Alexis Sanchez is expected to shake off a thigh injury in time for Arsenal's FA Cup final showdown with Chelsea at Wembely on Saturday.

Arsenal vs Chelsea kicks off at 5.30pm BST. As the club left Arsenal in defeat, the idea of a single trophy seemed a distant prospect to many fans.

"We think we're good enough to beat Arsenal, but it's not going to be an easy game". Chamberlain has no doubt struggled with his confidence to get into the starting eleven over the years, whilst all the players will probably be feeling on a low after failing to finish in the top four this season.

The eventual top-flight champions have won the FA Cup on 11 occasions, with Chelsea the most recent club to do so in 2010.

Conte: "I don't trust that tomorrow will be the last game for Arsene".

Chelsea have won their last seven competitive fixtures and the title winners will be brimming with confidence coming into Saturday's final.

Having romped away with the Premier League title, the Blues go looking to claim the double at Wembley and victory will see the Italian emulate compatriot Carlo Ancelotti by winning both the league and cup in his first year in England.

Conte offers support for Wenger ahead of final showdown
I think he deserves to work with Arsenal because he showed, in these 20 years, he is a good manager. I think that, in this aspect, we could start as underdogs because we won the league.

With a Cup win, he would vault into the very upper echelon of Chelsea managers, becoming only the second coach to bring a league and FA Cup double to Stamford Bridge. Of course, Chelsea have the edge in Wembley, but then again this is the FA Cup and upsets are a part and parcel of the competition!

What time is the FA Cup Final?

Wenger - who has a section of the Arsenal crowd calling for his head - is already without Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista and is trying to save his season.

"I saw a lot of attention; we trained very well in this week". After a season to forget in 2015-16, it seems Chelsea are, very emphatically, back. The 36-year-old is leaving this summer, 19 years after making his debut. "But we must continue to live and to face every situation in the right way". If you factor in the sheer number of goal scoring chances he creates on top of the assists it does not take a rocket scientist to work out that the playmaker of Turkish origin is one of the key danger-men. Per Mertesacker, Arsenal's club captain, will start his first game this season if Mustafi is to be declared unfit for the game.

"I mean, who'd ever have thought in their wildest dreams somebody could throw that amount of money at a football club and never stop throwing it at it if it needs to be done?" I just want to do what's best for my squad.

"We must keep the right concentration, I think in this aspect we could start as underdog because we won the league and we celebrate the league, it was right to enjoy the moment".
