Wenger invokes spirit of 2005 in FA Cup history bid

It is yet to be seen if the latest addition will be Victor Moses or Alex Iwobi as both Super Eagles stars will be at opposing ends in Saturday's crunch final game.

After finishing fifth in the league and missing out on Champions League qualification, the mood has been pretty bleak at Arsenal recently.

"We're not going to miss a game like this", Barrass said. Chelsea is favored to win the contest, adding the FA Cup to the Premier League title it won this season to complete its second-ever "double".

Liverpool legend and BBC Football pundit Mark Lawrenson has tipped Chelsea to comfortably beat Arsenal in Saturday's FA Cup final at Wembley, as long as they take control of the midfield.

Five victories in a row at the final distance of the championship of the Premier League of England, did not help Arsen Wenger's wards to break into the Champions League for the next season.

The whispers are that Arsene Wenger (picture) will extend his current contract and his near 21-year stay at Arsenal, whatever the outcome of today's contest. "But there is a lot of responsibility for every one of us to defend". He may start in a more advanced position for the Gunners.

There has always been speculation Diego Costa could leave Chelsea for a move to China this summer.

The Blues worked the ball nicely, the Brazilian then picking out Costa who chested the ball down and fired goalwards, it took a nick off Mertesacker and Ospina might have done better, but Chelsea didn't care and suddenly it was all square. Much of it is small adjustments, and what it comes down to is communication, giving others information so everyone knows what they are doing.
