So, that’s the Premier League over for another season – well done to Chelsea winning the title and commiserations to Boro, Hull and Sunderland, who all got relegated!
However, for all us football fans all is not lost as there are still a few loose ends to tie-up in the cup competitions – starting this Saturday with the 2017 FA Cup Final at Wembley.
This year it’s an all-London affair as the Premier League Champions – Chelsea – will be looking to land the a famous League/Cup double, take on Arsenal, who will be hoping to restore some pride after a poor league campaign.
The sides met in the league earlier this season, with one win a-piece, while if Arsenal can lift the trophy they will become the most successful FA Cup side in history with 13 wins!
We’ve got all the key head-to-head stats to take into the big game – like, did you know, Chelsea have scored 16 goals in the last 10 head-to-heads, while Arsenal have managed just 5 in those games?
