Michael Ballack and David O'Leary's FA Cup final views

Fear not pilots of banner-wielding aeroplanes, your loyal North London client base is unlikely to dry up even if Arsenal win the FA Cup tomorrow. Arsenal is just looking for some redemption.

Antonio Conte has already surpassed expectations in his first year as Chelsea manager and a victory in Saturday's (Sunday NZ time) FA Cup final against Arsenal would complete arguably the greatest season in the club's history.

Arsenal has won the title 12 times, the same as Manchester United.

The match presents the club's only chance to win silverware this season and could be Arsene Wenger's final game as manager of the club.

Chelsea have been the top performing team in England this season and former Arsenal star Merson can not see anything but a comfortable win for Conte's men this weekend. Next year with the Champions League we have to increase in numbers and in quality. "But my heart says Arsene Wenger could still pull something out of the hat... if you believe in him you believe this could be his day to win against all odds".

FA Cup success on Saturday, a seventh for the Frenchman, could yet see him stay on despite increased calls from critics and supporters alike for him to walk away.

"But, honestly, I was always very calm". Defenders Gabriel and Laurent Koscielny are ruled out and suspended respectively.

But Arsenal have found their stride from a defensive viewpoint, conceding fewer goals and keeping more clean sheets than Chelsea across the run of games. This aspect I can stay calm and I trust the players, it is impossible not to after this season. Shkodran Mustafi is a doubt due to concussion.

"He will be with us, and for sure he will be on the bench, and then we will see what the game needs in the moment we are playing", he said. "We'll have to find solutions and hopefully I will find the good solutions". "He has the leadership qualities so it depends a little bit on the system I will go for, the system I will choose".

Chelsea have spent the better part of the last two weeks celebrating a title that was the furthest thing from our minds just eight months ago. He has since won the trophy four times - 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012.

Terry experienced his first FA Cup final as an unused substitute in Chelsea's win over Aston Villa in 2000.

The 47-year-old visited several clubs and their training grounds during his stint with the Italian national team to learn the methods of English football, in 2015, while he was in charge of the Italy national team. The club trusted me that way.
