Aubameyang looks like he has chose to leave Arsenal, says Ferdinand

Explained: Why Arsenal need FA Cup victory more than Chelsea

Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes Chelsea will get their hands on this weekend's FA Cup.

Emiliano Martinez couldn't hold back his tears as he celebrated winning the FA Cup with Arsenal, 10 years after leaving Argentina to join the club as a teenager.

The Gunners will be playing in their 21st final of the competition and are looking to make it 14 FA Cups.

Four players are definitely out for this game and the remaining games of the season; Callum Chambers (knee), Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle) and Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) (Arsenal's official website).

With Arteta's side leading, and with Mateo Kovacic having been sent off, incorrectly in the eyes of most, the Arsenal goalie looked to have handled in the area.

"I hope so. Everything is based on my conversations with him, how he sees his future, what I expect from him, the team that I want to build around him and the conversations I have with the people who are very influential around him".

Despite that only Chelsea fans would begrudge the keeper his chance to finally celebrate the glory his career has deserved, and even then they may just allow him his moment, begrudgingly at least.

Arteta has previously praised Guardiola for his influence on him as City and Arsenal prepared to meet in the Premier League in June.

Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta who has always been positive when asked about Aubameyang's contract situation was once again put on the spot to answer whether Aubameyang would stay at the club and sign a new deal with them. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

"In terms of trophies, Arsenal needs it more and for confidence for next year and getting into Europe".

Arsenal hero Ian Wright says the club must back Mikel Arteta and bring top players around Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to keep him at the club.
