After a long season, London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea will contest one of the most prestigious items of silverware in the world tomorrow when they meet in the 139th final of the oldest football tournament on the planet.

Arsenal stunned Manchester City 2-0 in the semi-finals, while Chelsea saw off Manchester United 3-1 to leave Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard within one game of glory in their first seasons in charge.

Arsenal has won the cup 13 times, while Chelsea has won it in eight times.

However, this time around, the London affair can go either way.

Two fans spoke to Namibian Sun and predicted the finale's score.



Words from fans

“The FA Cup final is always an important occasion for the Gunners.

After finishing eighth in the Premier League, the team's only hopes of qualifying for European football next season is through winning this cup final, which would grant them Europa League qualification, so they have to go all out,” Tino Moses said.

He predicted the match will end 2-1 in Arsenal's favour.

Another fan, Michael Simon, said Chelsea will take the trophy.

“Chelsea will show their true colours tomorrow and will win the match 3-1.”
