Chelsea went head to head against Arsenal in the FA Cup Final at the weekend with Chelsea coming out as losers this time around.
The two have a deep local rivalry, and it was Chelsea celebrating this time last year in the Europa League Cup Final.
One player looks like he could soon be jumping ship from one rival to the other.
Willian is in talks to sign a contract with Arsenal as he has become a free agent at Chelsea. The Blues still want to keep him, but he has rejected their latest offer according to Fabrizio Romano.
Willian has refused another bid from Chelsea to extend his contract until June 2022. Still no agreement. Arsenal are now in talks with his representatives to sign him as a free agent – no bids from Barcelona at the moment. 🇧🇷 #AFC #CFC #transfers

Ironically, I’ve just noticed this stat that Willian has made more appearances against Arsenal than any other English opposition, but he has never scored against them.

That really is quite a ridiculous stat given the circumstances!
