The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have already started preparations for the FA Cup final against Arsenal on Saturday…
Given that Chelsea won the title a number of weeks ago, it has been a very slow and long build-up to the game, with many of the fans in the pub desperate for their side to get one over on Arsenal once again.
It was Arsenal, of course, that sparked Chelsea’s revival at the start of the season, with the Blues bouncing back from a big defeat against the Gunners to begin a remarkable winning streak in the Premier League.
A modern day rivalry, the Transfer Tavern is going to be full to the brim with fans that are hoping for an FA Cup classic at Wembley.
In truth, the Chelsea fans are feeling pretty confident ahead of the game, and a recent report from the Daily Mail has made them even more so. According to the Daily Mail, midfielder Cesc Fabregas looks likely to miss out on the game, with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte preparing for the game with a midfield duo of N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic in mind. Several fans in the pub were fearing that heart may have triumphed over head in the lead-up, with Fabregas likely desperate to start against his old club, but that appears unlikely to be the case.
It seems that this is one thing that Chelsea fans everywhere can agree on, with supporters taking to the Chelsea Subreddit on Reddit to praise the reported move from Conte. With many touting Matic as the perfect man to nullify Arsenal’s offensive threat, it seems fans are very confident.
