A London derby, two rookie managers on the lookout a first trophy, recent history in finals… it could be shaping up to be a classic at Wembley.
Our tipster has picked out his five bankers ahead of FA Cup weekend…
FA Cup Final Betting – Our 5 Tips
Olivier Giroud to score first @ 4/1
The Frenchman is in great form, and he loves a goal against his former club in a final. He’ll be looking to repeat what he did in Baku last summer and fire Chelsea to victory.
David Luiz to score anytime @ 11/1
It would be so David Luiz for him to pop up with a goal. We have seen recently that Chelsea give away silly free-kicks (vs Manchester City and Liverpool) so don’t put it past the Brazilian smashing one home from range.
Chelsea to win by 2 goals @ 107/20
The return of a confident Christian Pulisic and the red-hot form of Giroud and Mason Mount for Chelsea is about to collide with an Arsenal side who should’ve conceded four or five against Watford.
That screams goals – and Chelsea could have a field day if Arsenal repeat that defensive showing.
Arsenal – most yellow cards @ 103/100
The Gunners are likely to be the busier side in the middle of the park, trying to contain the likes of Mateo Kovačić and Mount in the Chelsea line-up. Granit Xhaka has a lot of work to do.
Half with most goals – second half @ 113/100
Every final must open up at some stage. With both sides leggy from a gruelling Premier League campaign, this one could get lively with 20-odd minutes remaining.
Odds correct at time of writing but may be subject to change.
