Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, has reflected on his time as the club's head coach and discussed their upcoming clash with Chelsea.
"Since I arrived here on the 20th of December [2019], so many things happened and so many stones have been in our way but I believe we have done a lot of progress in many situations," Arteta said.
"Around the environment as well that we are creating, the unity that the fans, team and club are showing at the moment and I think we are on a good track. We have a great opportunity now to have a good season if we are able to win against Chelsea in the final, lift the trophy and qualify for Europe." 
The last time Arsenal tasted a defeat in the final was against Liverpool FC in 2001 with the Gunners succumbing to a 2-1 defeat on the day.
Since then they have enjoyed a lot of success in the FA Cup having won six trophies including back-to-back titles between 2014 and 2015.
However, Arsenal are winless in their last three competitive matches against their city rivals, Chelsea.
They recorded two defeats in the Premier League and UEFA Europa League matches, but they managed to hold Chelsea to a draw in the other game which was a Premier League clash.
