Conte claims wounded Arsenal are FA Cup favourites

Chelsea finished 10th on the table last season, but won the league this year in Conte's first season and could make it a double with a win over Arsenal in the FA Cup.

"It will not be my last match anyway because no matter what happens I will stay in football".

"Would it be a nice farewell?"

"At the moment, of course, with the ridiculous situation of the pressure Arsene is under, I just wonder if they realise the job he's done", he told Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday.

Chelsea's 93 points was the second highest total since the Premier League began in 1992 and they became the first Premier League team to register 30 victories in one season. I want to win the cup for my club. I don't know. But we've got good players who can win us games.

Paul Merson believes Arsenal's chances of beating Chelsea in the FA Cup final are extremely low, particularly with Per Mertesacker set to play as the club cope with a defensive crisis.

"I am sure that Arsenal will keep Wenger on, and I am also sure that this is going to be a tough, tough game for Chelsea". I would just like to remind you that the end of his contract is 2018. We are a little bit in our bubble, isolated.

The league-winning manager warned Chelsea against complacency, saying that Arsenal are the favourites for the clash as they are looking to the Cup to turn their season from a failure to a success.

The standard suspension for Koscielny's red-card offence is a three-game ban and he will now start to serve this with immediate effect, missing the Cup final and Arsenal's opening two domestic fixtures of next season. It is a club with a divided fan base, a manager who was past his sell by date ten years ago, their best player, Alexis Sanchez, is likely to leave. "I have a big respect for him and I think he as well, respects what I have done in the game".

The 32-year-old club captain is in contention to start with Laurent Koscielny suspended, Gabriel injured and Shkodran Mustafi struggling to overcome illness. The last worry I have is about myself.

"One thing you can not question is my love for this club".
