When Chelsea went down to a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal back in September, few of us would have been checking out betting odds sites for the Blues to claim a Premier League and FA Cup double.
Of course it was that loss at the Emirates Stadium that was to prove to be the turning point in the campaign, with Chelsea not looking back since Antonio Conte adapted his defensive set-up in the aftermath of that defeat.
Now, with the Premier League title just about in the bag following Monday’s 3-0 demolition of Middlesbrough, it’s really just the FA Cup Final against the aforementioned Gunners that stands in the way of Antonio Conte and what would be an incredible achievement in his first season in English football.
For those wanting to put money on Chelsea to secure the double with FA Cup victory, it’s worth noting the advantages of betting with apps from mobile devices.

Chelsea Double Bubble
Arsenal surprised a few pundits in overcoming Manchester City in their semi-final, but they’ve long been fragile mentally when the pressure is on, so there’s plenty of reason to be confident going into the final.
You would also have to fancy Eden Hazard up against Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the left-flank in Arsenal’s new-look defensive set-up, while Costa is sure to ruffle a few feathers in the Gunners new-look back three.
It’s also a game where Cesc Fabregas might just have a key role to play against the team he served for so many years, whilst a certain Petr Cech will also be up against a number of his former colleagues.
Chelsea won the Premier League and FA Cup double in 2009-10 of course but, were they to repeat the achievement under Conte this season, it would arguably be more impressive given last season’s woes.
It would be a fitting finale to what has been a truly remarkable debut campaign for the Blues under signor Conte and a special way for the legendary John Terry to end his Chelsea playing days.
