Who will lift the trophy this time

Gunners vs Manchester City

Arsenal will face the defending champions Manchester City while Manchester United will battle it out Chelsea Fc at Wembley Stadium on the 18th and 19th respectively behind close doors. The Final will be played on the 1st of August.

Arsenal who might not make the premier league top 4 this season currently holds the highest FA cup victories with 13 wins and 7 runners up. The club has lifted the trophy in back to back in two or more consecutive years on ten different occasions.

Manchester City who have successfully overturned their two-year ban from european club competitions and being the defending champions stands a better chance of retaining the trophy but with one or two key players facing injuries could have an effect on their performance. 

SERGIO AGUERO remains out of the game with an operation on a knee injury while CLAUDIO BRAVO and JOAO CANCELO are dealing with slight muscular injury. 

For the Gunners we have BERND LENO, CALCUM CHAMBERS and GABRIEL MARTINELLI all with knee injuries. MESUT OZIL with back problem and PABLO MARIO who has ankle injury are both ruled out. 

This will be the 199th meeting between these two clubs with Manchester City winning 57 of those over the years.


Red Devils vs Blues

Another crucial encounter is between these two football and fan rivals MANCHESTER UNITED and CHELSEA FC. These two rivals will face it of at the Wembley stadium with the aim of making it to the finals of the competition. The duo has been struggling for the two remaining champions league slots on the Premier league table this season. These two rivals will battle it out before their final two premier league games. This should be the most anticipated match with both sides having huge fan base who are always ready to brag about supremacy in current form and who wins the match at the end of the day. 

Considering the history of these two rivals FA CUP competitions Chelsea seems to have always taken the lead in recent outcomes. They have beaten Manchester United with a lone goal to win the trophy in 2018 FA CUP final and in 2017 quarter finals. 

On the other hand, the red devils whom have proven to be very spectacular with great form of display this season wont be an easy ride for the blues. 

LUKE SHAW and BRANDON WILLIAMS were both missing from the united squad which defeated crystal palace 2-0 due to injury, hope both can return with full capacity for sunday. 

As for Chelsea, it is more likely that NGOLO KANTE will feature especially with BILLY GILMOUR out of the season due to knee injury. 

As we all wait for these spectacular matches this weekend lets hear your stake or predictions on these games. 

This are my stakes

Arsenal VS Mancity (1-2)

Man U VS Chelsea (0-1)(0-0)
