The English Premier League have just ended, but football fans can still witness an entertaining match this upcoming weekend as Arsenal will battle Chelsea in FA Cup final.
Gunning for trophies, this encounter should be an exciting one not only for the sport’s viewers, but also for betting enthusiasts who are keen on placing their money.
For those of you who enjoy a flutter, it’s worth doing your research to find the football betting tips available online before making decision about where to put your money.
Talking more about the upcoming match, both teams will certainly be looking to give their best as it’s still a prestigious cup final, albeit being a domestic competition.
Arsenal certainly feel that it’s an essential game for them as it’s their only shot at winning anything this season.
After several disappointing results, which being recently topped by their failure in finishing at the top four seat, FA Cup glory can bring a positive vibe as their season end.
Nevertheless, it won’t be an easy task for Arsene Wenger’s men as they do have to face this season’s Premier League champion.
Another thing that certainly makes it tougher for Gunners is the absence of their main center back, Laurent Koscielny, who is suspended after picking up a red card on his last league game.
Arsenal’s attempt in appealing for that decision, but as it was reported by ESPN, FA has rejected that appeal, so Koscielny will not be available.
Moreover, the fact that Wenger will eventually clarify his decision right after the final, might provide some kind of effect on his players’ mindset, though the manager certainly hope that none will get distracted.
Meanwhile, despite already grabbing the Premier League title, Chelsea remain hungry for another trophy as it can give them that proud feeling of winning the double.
Notably for their Italian tactician, Antonio Conte, who has recently named as manager of the year by League’s Manager Association (LMA)
After winning a record of 30 league games, The Blues certainly determined in grabbing another victory by beating Wenger’s men this upcoming Saturday.
Having most of their star players, such as Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and N’golo Kante available, Conte won’t have much issues in setting up his squad for that tie.
Should there be some concern for the Italian boss, it might be on his team’s mental preparation as they have just celebrated an impressive league victory and at times players might lose a slight focus because of it.
Still, according to the bookies, Chelsea are favorite to win that final as their shot in achieving it during 90 minutes is valued at 1.727.
As for Gunners, their opportunity in ending their season with an FA Cup trophy is placed at 4.75, which lower than a potential draw result during normal time which is set at 3.85.
