The longest season in FA Cup history comes to an end on Saturday night, when Arsenal and Chelsea will face Wembley Stadium in the 139th FA Cup final.
Arsenal recently ended the Premier League season with a 3-2 victory over Watford.
However, Mikel Arteta cannot be satisfied with the performance of his students this season, after Arsenal obtained the weakest ranking from 1995 until now.
Ranking in the 8th position in the Premier League means that Arsenal finished the season again under rival Tottenham.
The only positive things are the fact that Arsenal defeated the Liverpool champion from the restart of the season and eliminated Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals.
The Gunners have not lost a FA Cup final since 2001, winning the cup 6 times since then.
Chelsea secured their place in the Champions League after winning 2-0 against Wolves in the last round of the Premier League.
He reached the FA Cup final in 3 of the last 4 seasons and managed to win 5 of the last 6 FA Cup finals.
Frank Lampard’s students beat Manchester United in the FA Cup semifinals.
Chelsea have won 10 of the last 13 games in all competitions.

Football Prediction of the Day Arsenal vs Chelsea
We had a unique season in many ways, and this is an honorable showdown to draw the curtain over the 19/20 season in England.
It is one of the most contested finals in the history of the FA Cup. Both teams had impressive performances this summer.
However, Chelsea secured their place in the Champions League, while Arsenal ended the Premier League season in the lowest position since 1995.
Therefore, for Arsenal this match represents the only chance to obtain a qualification in the European cups of the next season.
The two teams accustomed us to spectacular duels. I expect the same scenario now, and my prediction is that both teams will score and we will see at least 3 goals throughout the game.
