Even though the Gunners are multiple time winners of the cup and current favourites to win, it doesn’t look likely to happen, especially after this season’s performance.

Chelsea have been on a role and it’s doubtful they’ll lose their grip against Arsenal.” says David Strauss, line manager at MyBookie Online Sportsbook.

The blues’ will be aiming to complete a domestic double for the first time since they did it under Carlo Ancelotti in 2009-10.

This is a great opportunity to win and to do the double.”
