Chelsea’s top four in the Premier League secured their place in the Champions League.
They could put the icing on the cake at Wembley if they can beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final – live on talkSPORT.
The first season has been successful for manager Frank Lampard, especially as the club sold Eden Hazard this summer and banned the transfer this time last year.
His team, with the help of a few young upstarts, managed to beat Tottenham, Arsenal, Wolves and Sheffield United in the top four.
It shows the potential of the man across a whole campaign and new signings Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner will certainly make them even more interesting to watch next quarter.
But how is Lampard going to handle an FA Cup final as a manager? A one-off battle of wits with another former former player Mikel Arteta awaits him at Wembley.
It promises to be an intriguing test of his courage and his bottle, as it could easily be argued that his Blues side stumbled into the top four thanks to Leicester City’s shock meltdown.
You can hear it all live on talkSPORT and our coverage of the match begins at 2 p.m. from Box Park on Wembley Way.

Chelsea team news
Unfortunately for the Blues, Ruben Loftus-Cheek suffered a late blow this week and will miss the game at Wembley.
They also have two other big injury issues, N’Golo Kante still suffering from a hamstring complaint and midfielder Willian is also in doubt after missing the last Premier League game of the season against Wolves.
“Kante and Willian are in the squad and we’ll see if they’re fit enough to be involved. Ruben Loftus-Cheek spotted a small problem, ”Lampard said in his pre-match press conference.
Kepa Arrizabalaga will almost certainly remain out of the squad with regular goalkeeper Willy Caballero Chelsea.
Long-absent Billy Gilmour is also absent from the final.
What Chelsea should look like against Arsenal
In the event that Kante goes missing again, we’ll see Lampard opt for a proven formula.
In the last game of the Premier League season, the young manager made just two changes to the squad which lost 5-3 to Liverpool.
He brought Caballero for Arrizabalaga to give him more match practice, while he gave Christian Pulisic a start with Willian injured.
The Blues are likely to keep the same squad if the Brazil ace joins Kante on the sidelines with Mason Mount playing to the right in the final third.
The defense will remain the same to give additional stability, while Oliver Giroud is expected to start ahead of Tammy Abraham as he seeks to sink his former club at Wembley.
