Deportivo Alaves forward Patrick Twumasi believes Chelsea looks favorite in Saturday’s FA Cup finals at Wembley.
Chelsea lock horns with Arsenal in an all-London affair with the blues hoping to avenge a defeat to the Gunners in 2017.
Arsenal clinched a 2-1 victory the last time the two sides met in the finals.
Frank Lampard’s side in recent time have been heavily criticized for their defensive woes.
Despite their defensive challenges, Twumasi believes the former English Champions would emerge victorious on Saturday.
“Saturday’s game will be very tough because Chelsea are in form, they have a manager like Frank Lampard and they have very sharp attackers like Willian and [Mason] Mount,” Twumasi told Goal .
“Olivier Giroud is not so quick but he has lots of experience. It will be an interesting game to watch.
“Chelsea’s defence is not so strong, so that opens up a 50-50 opportunity for both sides. I will go for Chelsea to win the game because they have been in top form and their attack is very quick.”
The 26-year-old however believes Arsenal could cause a threat due to the attacking prowess with the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
“Arsenal have also not been doing badly. Their attack is difficult to handle because they have pacy wingers like [Alexandre] Lacazette and Aubameyang who can put Chelsea in danger. It’s a winner-takes-all game.
“Let’s see what Saturday brings in the challenge ahead and who wins,” Twumasi concluded. “For me, both teams because they have been on top of their game.”
Twumasi recently ended his loan spell with Turkish side Gazisehir Gaziantep and has already received several offers from interested Clubs.
