While the two competitors, Arsenal and Chelsea, are teams who expect trophies on a regular basis, with the ever increasing competition at the top of the Premier League, such expectations are spurned more often than not.

Though he has been barracked by his own fans and failed to secure Champions League qualification for the first time in 20 years, Wenger can make history by becoming the first manager to win seven FA Cups.

While some punters will back Chelsea to won domestic double in spite of the odds not being too attractive, others will take a chance with Arsenal, who have enjoyed a great deal of success in the competition of late. We are confident, we have a strong team but they have a strong team also.

The defender hadn't played a single minute of competitive football since April previous year before being called upon for the dying embers of the win against Everton.

There are no plans to deploy military personnel around Wembley Stadium for the FA Cup final on Saturday, Sky News has learned.

With their Europa League spot confirmed for next season, the Gunners desperately need to finish the season on a high to give their fans something to cheer about.

The Gunners will, of course, be desperate for some silverware after missing out on the top four, intensifying the uncertainty surrounding manager Arsene Wenger's future, but Moses added: "We don't feel any pressure, we're just taking this game as it comes".

Since the year of the Invincibles, only Chelsea and Manchester United have acquired more points than Wenger's side. Figures like back-to-back League victor and PFA player of the year N'Golo Kante and attackers Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have been instrumental in winning the league title and will carry forward plenty of momentum, as well as the mental edge over a shaky Arsenal squad. "But we're just concentrating on ourselves at the moment, working hard in training, and hopefully we'll go and do the job".

The problem, though, for Arsenal, going into this FA Cup final, is that they are seriously short of centre-backs.
