FA CUP FINAL- Moses wants revenge on Arsenal


Super Eagles’ winger Victor Moses is looking for an outright win in this weekend’s FA Cup final as he warned Arsenal that he and his team-mates still think about the early-season 3-0 defeat that turned their season as they hunt a historic double at Wembley.

The champions can become only the third team to win the Premier League and FA Cup in the same year twice, should they beat the Gunners in Saturday’s final.

Antonio Conte’s team were overpowered at the Emirates Stadium in September before their fortunes changed.

Chelsea’s Italian manager immediately made the now-famous switch to 3-4-3, giving Moses a place in the team, and the champions have enjoyed great success since.

Moses, who has flourished in the wing back, revealed that he is ‘more focused than ever’ on lifting a second trophy in the space of a week.

“We still think about it,” Moses said. “We lost two games in a row then — against Liverpool and Arsenal. We felt very sad after that game. They beat us at the Emirates but we switched to 3-4-3, which is the manager’s favourite formation, and it’s worked for us this season. Teams are finding it very hard to break us down.

“We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and make sure we win on Saturday because Arsenal are going to do their best to try and beat us. We’ve got the league title and they’re going to want to win because they missed out on the top four. We’re going to try and stop them because we want the Double. I’m more focused now than ever. I’m enjoying my football again. The more games you play, the more experience you get and I’m enjoying that so far this season, I’m really enjoying my football.”
