Arsenal vs Norwich, and Liverpool vs Chelsea FA Cup Final: Open Thread

It’s going to be a bit of a peculiar day with only two matches today. The early kick-off is Arsenal against Norwich City. Then, after that’s over, we have a two hour break before the FA Cup Final kicks off at 12:15pm ET/5:15pm BST.

For Arsenal, a win today will be vital to try to secure third place especially with Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur returning to top form. Norwich are safe in the Premier League for next year, but they’ll want to avoid letting more goals in. In the past 3 matches, they’ve conceded 11 goals.

As for the FA Cup Final, this should be a full-blooded match between two teams who certainly want to win a prestigious trophy. Most people favor Chelsea to win the match, but never count out Liverpool.
