Three years ago, Arsenal and Chelsea were involved in the FA Cup final, with the Gunners triumphing 2-1 for a record seventh crown.
Today, the attention of millions of football fans across the globe will be focused at the Wembley Stadium for another great contest between London rivals, Arsenal and Chelsea.
As usual, many Nigerian football fans, who are supporters of the two clubs are locked up in a ‘battle of jocularity’ baring their mind and laying claim to victory even before the game kicks off in London.
Victory for Arsenal will secure them a place in next season’s Europa League after placing 8th and missing out on qualification in the Premier League. Their fans are optimistic the Gunners will put everything into today’s FA Cup final.
“I see Arsenal beating Chelsea tomorrow (today) because there is no way my club will miss out in both the Champions League and Europa Cup competition next season,” a Gunners fan, who identified his name as Oke bragged on a radio sports programme in Lagos yesterday. (Guardian)
