The longest season in England is coming to an end. The 2019/20 season, which began with a Community Shield match between the Manchester City doubles player and the second in the Liverpool table on August 4, will close in about an hour (19:20, live broadcast in Sports1) With the English Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea. Winning number 14 for the Gunners or ninth trophy for Chelsea? The Gunners, of course, must lift the trophy to play in Europe next season after finishing just eighth in the league. The Blues, on the other hand, finished in fourth place and will play in the Champions League.
History goes in the meantime with Arsenal winning twice in a row after two wins over Chelsea – they completed a double on their account in 2001/02 with a 0: 2 win, and in the 2016/17 season won 1: 2 from goals from Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey. Diego Costa equalized temporarily. It was Arsenal’s last title win while the Blues lifted the trophy two years ago after a 0-1 draw with Manchester United.
Arsenal come into the game after experiencing a shaky season finale. She defeated Manchester City in the Cup semi-finals as well as Liverpool in the league within a few days and on the other hand surrendered in a derby to Tottenham and Aston Villa and finished the season with just two wins in the last five rounds. In the last round they defeated Watford 2: 3 thanks to a pair of captain Pierre-Emerick Obmiang, who it is impossible to know if this will be his last game at the club. The tip trio will continue to collaborate together, though this time it looks like a three-brake lineup. Hector Byrne will replace the. Goalkeeper Brand Lano is still injured, of course, as are Mesut Ozil, Corden Mustafi and Gabriel Martinelli.
Chelsea had the big task – to reach fourth place, when since the corona break they have won six games and lost three times. On the way to the final, of course, they ousted Manchester United after a 1: 3 victory. The season in the Blues League ended with a not easy 0: 2 over Wolves from goals by Olbia Giro who is in excellent shape as well as Mason Mount. The Frenchman will continue to be a top favorite over Tami Avraham. Goalkeeper Willie Cbajero will open at the expense of coffee. Angulo Canta, who has been absent for the past month due to injury, opens on the bench. Also Pedro, probably in his last game, and Callum Hudson-Odoi. The Blues achieved good results this season against the Gunners in the league – 2: 2 in the first round at Stamford Bridge and a 1: 2 victory at the Emirates Stadium when they erased a backlog.
