FA Cup Preview: Arsenal vs. Chelsea
A champion will be crowned on Saturday when Arsenal battles Chelsea in the 2020 FA Cup last.

Chelsea, meantime, enters Saturday’s match full of confidence, having missing just one of its final 15 games in the FA Cup. Kickoff for Arsenal vs. Chelsea is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET.
The most recent FA Cup odds from William Hill list Chelsea at +110 (risk $100 to win $110), while Arsenal is going off at +250. The draw is +250 (after 90 minutes plus injury time) and the over-under for complete goals scored is 2.5.

Top FA Cup last predictions for Arsenal vs. Chelsea
The mannequin is leaning under 2.5 goals in Saturday’s showdown between Arsenal and Chelsea. Arsenal pulled off a shocking upset in the FA Cup semifinal, knocking off Manchester City by a last score of 2-0. Despite maintaining just 30 percent of possession, the Gunners registered five shots on track while allowing just two shots on goal. Arsenal’s defense was once extremely inconsistent down the stretch in the Premier League, but Mikel Arteta’s side has been disciplined in the FA Cup competition. Actually, the Gunners have recorded a clean sheet in three of their final five games in this competition.
Chelsea, meantime, has won five of its final seven games across all competitions. The Blues are coming off an impressive 2-0 win over Wolves that secured Frank Lampard’s side a spot in next season’s Champions League. Chelsea’s recent run of success will also be directly attributed to its strong defensive play. Actually, the Blues have conceded just one goal in their final three FA Cup matches, probably the most main reasons the mannequin is leaning towards the under on Saturday.
