Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has a chance to earn some redemption and possibly save the job he has held since 1996 when his legendary North London Club faces Premier League Champions Chelsea on Saturday, as the FA Cup Final will live stream from Wembley Stadium — with Arsenal going for their third FA Cup title in the last four years. Chelsea will be driven to complete the first England domestic double since 2009-2010 when that season’s Chelsea side also accomplished the feat.
Wenger had guided Arsenal into the UEFA Champions League each season of his previous 20 at the Gunners’ helm. But the club finally fell short in 2016-2017, finishing in fifth place with just 23 wins against nine defeats and six draws. A win on Saturday would give Wenger seven FA Cup titles in his Arsenal tenure.
The team’s subpar performance in the domestic campaign has put the 67-year-old Wenger’s future in doubt at the Emirates, something that even his record-setting seventh FA Cup trophy might not alleviate.
On the other bench, 47-year-old Italian Antonio Conte took over Chelsea only this season, after three years at the helm of Serie A powerhouse Juventus followed by two years in charge of Italy’s national team. But right out of the gate with Chelsea, Conte has the opportunity to seal the double and the club’s seventh FA Cup championship — as they are favored to do with a largely healthy side, while Arsenal is struggling to fill holes left by injuries.

Saturday’s FA Cup final will mark the 190th meeting of the two legendary London clubs. The teams contested their first and, until Saturday, only FA Cup Final in 2002, when Arsenal emerged with a 2-0 victory.

Can Arsene Wenger lead Arsenal to one more trophy, a title that may be his last as manager of the history North London club, by defeating the 2016-2017 Premier League champions in the FA Cup Final? Or will Antonio Conte and Chelsea earn that team’s eighth FA Cup title, completing England’s domestic double and sending Wenger out — if indeed the iconic Frenchman is on the way out — on a losing note?
