This summer's FA Cup Final means a lot to both London clubs, but European qualification rides on the outcome of this fixture for Arsenal. After finishing eighth in the Premier League, Saturday's game is a must-win to qualify for next season's Europa League.

Frank Lampard's Chelsea stand in the way and would love to achieve their first piece of silverware under his management. Given the circumstances, how will both teams handle the pressure this weekend? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Betting Tips

It'll be interesting to see how both sides approach this game with silverware up for grabs. Arsenal delivered a disciplined defensive display to stun holders Manchester City in their semi-final. By contrast, Chelsea blew Manchester United away and made them look ordinary – helped by a David de Gea disasterclass.

Since their 3-0 win in January 2016, the Gunners have won just three of 12 H2H meeetings with Chelsea. The Blues already look quite different to the last time they lost against Arsenal – which speaks volumes.

Under-fire goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is likely to be kept out of the firing line, with Willy Caballero deputising. How does that impact Chelsea's defensive plans? Cesar Azpilicueta has been dependable this term, while Reece James is showing promise.

Besides the pair, questions will be asked of their backline by Arsenal here. Alexandre Lacazette has picked up form since last month's resumption and Aubameyang netted a brace to sink City. Don't forget to watch out for Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe and Kieran Tierney – the latter two were underrated assets against Pep's side.

Arsenal vs Chelsea Correct Score Predictions

Given what's at stake for Arsenal here, my head tells me Mikel Arteta's side will pull out a similarly impressive display to prevail.

However, Chelsea are better and despite their defensive frailties, are more than capable of outscoring the Gunners. I'm backing Lampard's men to emerge victorious, though this fixture probably will be decided by fine margins at Wembley.
