Antonio Conte Says Arsenal Are Favourites to Win FA Cup


The Blues head into the game at Wembley on the back of their Premier League success, while Arsenal missed out on Champions League football.

Terry has been more peripheral this time around, contributing to his announcement last month that he would be leaving Chelsea after 22 years and 15 major trophies.

"When I went out to play against Watford last week, the smell of the grass where it had rained and it was a little bit zippy - all of those things you take for granted over the years".

CHELSEA'S decision to substitute John Terry in the 26th minute of their 5-1 defeat of Sunderland has led to controversy after bookies Paddy Power paid out on bets made on his substitution. I'm a man who has just finished losing a game today and I'm gutted I lost the game and the way we've lost it.

The Football Association has asked betting companies to provide any relevant information relating to John Terry's substitution after 26 minutes of his farewell Chelsea appearance against Sunderland on Sunday.

The club captain was given a guard of honour by his team-mates as he left to a standing ovation, but there was post-match criticism of the move.

Conte could clinch the "double" in today's FA Cup final against London rivals Arsenal . But we've got good players who can win us games.

The 36-year-old said a drawn-out goodbye to supporters during the first half of the Blues' final-day win over Sunderland on Sunday, departing the field in the 26th minute to represent his shirt number.

"As long as the supporters are happy -- and I'm over the moon with the reception they gave me -- I couldn't case less", added Terry, whose life off the pitch has been often controversial.

Chelsea claimed a Premier League-record 30 victories, including 13 in a row from October 1, and can also do the double in Conte's first season in charge with victory over Arsenal in Saturday's FA Cup final.

"It was quite emotional, after the game I was drained". But I'm not sure about this.

The relegated Black Cats were aware of the orchestrated plan, which Terry has said was his idea, and the Premier League is understood to be relaxed about the matter, which did not contravene its rules.
