What channel is Arsenal v Chelsea Women's FA Cup final on? Kick off time, live stream and latest team news
Check out how to watch Arsenal v Chelsea in the Women's FA Cup final this weekend, including TV and live stream details, team news, predictions and odds.
The Women's FA Cup final will take place this week between Arsenal and Chelsea 15 months after the first round of the competition was played.
This is still the 2020/21 final to be played on Sunday, despite the 2021/22 FA Cup competition already going into the third round.
Traditionally held in May, the Women's FA Cup final looks set to be worth the long wait as the two English powerhouses of the women's game clash at the home of football.
Arsenal have won the competition more times than anyone else with 14 FA Cup trophies to their name, six times more than the next most successful team, Southampton, who dominated the game in the 1970s.
However, they haven't lifted the trophy since 2016 – in a game against Chelsea – and their last appearance in the final ended in tears as they were defeated by Chelsea in 2018.
The Blues will hope for a repeat of that day as Ramona Bachmann – who has since departed for PSG – and Fran Kirby netted the crucial goals in a 3-1 victory.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Chelsea
With both teams in sensational form, it's near-impossible to predict this one with genuine conviction. No result would be truly shocking, but expect a tight game.
Both sides boast remarkable defensive solidity with just eight goals conceded between them in 16 combined games. Up front they've found the net 53 times in that spell.
Frank Kirby and Sam Kerr look borderline unstoppable at Chelsea right now, and on the rare occasion they're not at the races, a deep supporting cast including Jessie Fleming is on hand to shunt them over the line.
For Arsenal, Vivianne Miedema has found the net in each of her last three outings and will be determined to exact revenge on Chelsea after scoring the Gunners' consolation goal in their last FA Cup final defeat.
The safest bet is that you can guarantee a superb spectacle for fans and neutrals alike. Expect attack to defeat defence, and maybe Chelsea will just about scrape it on penalties.
