Both sides have outclassed their respective opponents in the FA Cup semi-final. Arsenal’s job has been relatively tougher than the Blues. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City are not an easy side to beat. The Gunners were clinical up front and they were disciplined at the back. Mikel Arteta is trying to improve the gameplay of the Gunners against the big clubs with limited resources. Recently he has been successful on two occasions against Liverpool and Manchester City in Premier League and the FA Cup semi-final respectively.

On the other hand, Frank Lampard’s Chelsea has been vulnerable at the back several times this season. However, their attack has been really good this season. Olivier Giroud is leading from the front after the lockdown period. Willian and Christian Pulisic are also in great form. The manager of the Blues, Frank Lampard has mentioned that Willian and N’Golo Kante are fit to be part of the squad in the FA Cup final for the Blues. So, Chelsea will certainly have the edge, but Arsenal is not far behind.
