London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea will battle it out for FA Cup glory on Saturday evening at Wembley.

The Gunners booked their place in the final after overcoming favourites Manchester City 2-0 while Chelsea sealed their spot by beating United 3-1 last time out.

Here, Sportsmail's big names predict who will be lifting the prestigious FA Cup...

Saturday represents a repeat of the 2017 FA Cup final, where Arsenal overcame Chelsea 2-1

DAVIB 'BUMBLE' LLOYD - Arsenal 2 Chelsea 0

I don't want to go against Piers Morgan because he will be ranting and raving if Arsenal lose, so I'm going to back them. They've got an impressive manager in Mikel Arteta, too. He had a good grounding under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and I like the cut of his jib.

PETER CROUCH - Arsenal 1 Chelsea 2

I have had Chelsea as favourites since the semi-finals and the boost from qualifying for the Champions League will be huge. I expect an entertaining game with plenty of chances, but Chelsea will be too strong and can crown an outstanding season for Frank Lampard.

Frank Lampard can finish off an outstanding campaign with FA Cup glory on Saturday evening

MARTIN KEOWN - Arsenal 2 Chelsea 1

No club who finished in the Premier League's top 10 this season conceded more goals than Frank Lampard's Chelsea. They clearly have frailties at the back, so I'll back Mikel Arteta's Arsenal, with their potent front three, to take the trophy this club loves to win.

NASSER HUSSAIN - Arsenal 1 Chelsea 0

It will be a war zone in our house because one of my boys supports Chelsea and the other Arsenal, so I'll probably go out and leave them to it. I reckon it will be like the old days — 1-0 to the Arsenal — as long as David Luiz doesn't have another brain-fade at the worst time.

David Luiz needs to be on the top of his game against his former side Chelsea at Wembley

SIR CLIVE WOODWARD - Arsenal 1 Chelsea 3

Arsenal's recent victories against Manchester City and Liverpool came from hitting them on the break, but finals are cagey affairs and I expect this one to be no different.

If Chelsea don't go too gung-ho, I expect them to come out on top.

CHRIS SUTTON - Arsenal 2 Chelsea 2 (Chelsea win on pens)

Both sides' strengths seem to be in forward areas and their weaknesses are at the back.

This is so difficult to predict but I'll plump for a high-scoring draw and goalkeeper Willy Caballero to be Chelsea's penalty-save king.

Willy Caballero is likely to start ahead of under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga in the Chelsea goal
