Gary Cahill and John Terry lift the Premier League trophy at Stamford Bridge
BY SAMSON MBII,NAIROBI,27TH MAY 2017-Chelsea take on Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday in game both sides consider important .
The Blues can complete a Premier League and FA Cup double with victory on Saturday, while Arsenal can end the season on a high note in what has been a difficult year for Arsene Wenger’s side.
It’s an important game for both teams.
To win the Double is massive. It’s not done that often, so it’s a big game for Chelsea.
However, this is Arsenal all over, they have won the FA Cup a few times recently so they can perform in one-off games but in the league it’s 38 games and it’s when they have to park the bus and try to get a 0-0 draw they come up short.
But Arsenal are struggling in defence. If both teams had brought their A game then Chelsea would still have won, but with Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel out, Shkodran Mustafi potentially out and Per Mertesacker playing at the back I would be shocked if Arsenal got a result.
The way Arsenal’s defence is currently it could proof an uphill task coping with Chelsea’s attacking flair. Tottenham play very well in the semi-final and they still let in four goals. Tottenham were the better team on that day and still lost.
Arsenal need to have their best defenders playing to have any chance and they haven’t.
Laurent Koscielny is suspended for the FA Cup final
