Victor Moses, Iwobi In FA Cup Battle
Two Nigerian players, Victor Moses and Alex Iwobi will be ‘enemies’ for 90 minutes (or more) on Saturday and the battle ground will be the magnificent Wembley stadium.
While the Gunners are looking at salvaging what has been a largely disappointing season, the Blues want to consolidate on a sterling season in which they won the EPL title in style.
Buzzing with so much confidence under their Italian Manager, Antonio Conte, Chelsea are looking for their first league and FA Cup double since 2010.
Victory over the Gunners would bring about their 15th major trophy since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003.
A handful of Nigerian players have had the opportunity to win the FA Cup in time past with their various club and whichever way things go on Saturday at Wembley, another Nigerian win the FA Cup again.
Those that have won in the past include the duo of Mikel Obi and Celestine Babayaro who at different time won with Chelsea.
Kanu Nwanwko had the honour of winning with Arsenal and Portsmouth.
John Utaka also won with Portsmouth while Daniel Amokachi had his own magical moment with Everton.
