FA Cup

Here is why Arsenal Fans are rooting for Chelsea in their clash against Manchester United.(opinion)

Manchester United are up against London side Chelsea in their Emirates FA Cup Semi-final clash. This happens to be the fourth time this season the two teams are up against each other. The stages are set as the match is slated to hold at the prestigious Wembley Stadium. Arsenal FC fans have been all over social media celebrating the win against Manchester City last night. Which has given them the FA cup finals ticket?

It takes just two more matches to win before Manchester United claims their 13th FA cup trophy. Been the most successful club in the competition history with 13 triumphs, Arsenal is bent in holding on to the title. If Manchester United happens to qualify and eventually win them in the final, it means that both they and united are now joint leaders in the FA cup history.

Furthermore, a game against Chelsea is more preferably than a match against United. Owing to the fact that Manchester United are in tremendous form and have gone 19 matches unbeaten, facing such a team will not favor them to claim their 14th trophy.

Another remarkable point to note is payback time. The last time Arsenal was in the FA cup, that was in 2018, they were beaten 2-0 by Chelsea to win that year's edition. So meeting Chelsea for a rematch of what happened in 2018 is surely what gunners fans needs.
