Outside the World Cup Final, the most watched Soccer game worldwide is the FA Cup Final, and it comes around for Australian viewers early Sunday morning, with the 190th meeting between Arsenal and Chelsea.
This edition of a London rivalry will be held at Wembley Stadium, the number one stadium England has to offer and always attracts a capacity crowd, and you need not miss a minute of the action when streaming the match live to an eligible mobile device with a Free trial, or watching the replay at a later time.
Arsenal v Chelsea FA Cup Preview
These matches between the two sides are always fiercely contested with both teams having full trophy cabinets. Between the pair, they’ve won 58 pieces of silverware, including 19 FA Cups, with Arsenal winning 12 and Chelsea picking up nine. Arsenal have had a great record in the FA Cup in recent years.
These two sides played in the EPL in September, with Arsenal flogging Chelsea 3-0, and at that stage the Gunners fans were dreaming and hoping for a Premier League title, but after that, the Blues went on to win 13 straight games, conceding four goals and securing the title. Arsenal ended up finishing fifth and missed out on a Champions League spot for the first time in the 20 years that Wenger has been in charge. This could be a potential boom or bust game for Wenger and his career.
N’Golo Kante could well be the match breaker. He won with Leicester in their famous title win last season before being transferred to Chelsea where he starred under Conte. He made 127 tackles as well as 82 interceptions with a passing accuracy of 89%, one of the highest in English Football. He has been outstanding this season and he will be vital as to whether or not Chelsea can continue on their remarkable season.
