Chelsea cancel victory parade in wake of Manchester terror attack

Their most recent Wembley outing will also stand them in good stead, with Arsenal having seen off Pep Guardiola's Manchester City 2-1 in the semi-finals courtesy of an extra-time victor by Alexis Sanchez.

Chelsea will be the favorites on Saturday to seal a league and cup double. Arsenal is just looking for some redemption.

"It has been a great season", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said.

"We haven't been brilliant all season, when we have gone through ups and downs". The latter has been in splendid form in recent weeks as Arsenal went on a five match winning run in the league and that could play a role in the manager's decision making for the final. But a win for Arsenal would set a record for the club and manager Arsene Wenger.

Shkodran Mustafi has still not trained since suffering a concussion, and is an unlikely starter for the FA Cup final against Chelsea.

"Our compassion and solidarity is total with the city of Manchester". He is expected to announce soon whether he will stay on for next season.

Sanchez has once again proved to be the Gunners' main threat this season, netting five goals in his final four Premier League outings to take his tally to 24 in all.

"Alexis needs to go through some tests", Wenger said.

"We know that we've got the opportunity of playing in the FA Cup final and it's something we really want to do our best in". I want to win the cup for my club and that's all I care about.

The Blues were supposed to celebrate their Premier League trophy win along King's Road and New King's Road in west London on Sunday, but after consultation with the local council and Metropolitan Police have opted to cancel instead.

Laurent Koscielny is suspended after picking up a daft red card in the final day win over Everton.

"They have fantastic players and an unbelievable coach, so we need to be in our high level to win this final".

"I'm French, we've lived in a emergency state for a long time now and it not visible what the police are doing, usually".

The wing-back warned that Arsenal would be after revenge, having suffered a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge earlier this season as Chelsea avenged a 3-0 loss at the Emirates in September.

Where can I watch Arsenal - Chelsea? "I think we have to look at ourselves in the mirror and see what's next for us".

Danny Welbeck missed the FA Cup final in 2015 through injury as Arsenal won the competition for the second time in as many years.
