The Gunners come into this match in great form, after beating Everton 3-1 on the final day of the season.

Hector Bellerin proved to be the unlikely source for Arsenal's opener (8), slotting Arsenal ahead early on.

Laurent Koschielny was given his marching orders in the 14th minute, after a late lunge on Enner Valencia.

Arsenal doubled their advantage through Alexis Sanchez (27), with the Chilean in excellent form.

Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for Everton from the penalty spot (58), giving them some hope of salvaging a point.

Aaron Ramsey put paid to those hopes late on though, with the Gunners third coming in the dying minutes of the match (90+1).

Gunners Finish Fifth

It means that Arsenal finish the season in fifth, the first time during Wenger's tenure they have failed to qualify for the Champions League.

They won their final five matches of the season though, despite a horrible fixture pile up but it will cost them dear.

They remain highly doubtful to retain the services of key players like Sanchez and Ozil, and Wenger is yet to confirm his future.

Gunners Underdogs

Arsenal come into this match as the underdogs, despite their excellent recent form Chelsea are the favourites.

The Gunners did beat Manchester City in the Semi-Final, and they will be confident of causing a successive upset.

Arsenal will be looking to continue their overall form against Chelsea, they have won 63 of their 167 meetings.

Arsenal are 18/5 with Alexis Sanchez at 6/1 to open the scoring.
