With rumours of a move to China persisting, Diego Costa will be hoping to mark what could be his last game for Chelsea with a goal in Saturday’s FA Cup final against Arsenal.
Having enjoyed his most prolific season in a blue shirt with 21 goals in all competitions, the Spain international is dabblebet’s 3/1 (4.00) favourite to open the scoring in the showpiece finale.
However, considering he has found the net in just two of the last 13 fixtures for Antonio Conte’s men, anytime odds of 4/5 (1.80) seem rather short on Costa returning to form here.
Instead, Eden Hazard looks like stronger value at 11/8 (2.38) to get on the scoresheet for the fourth encounter against the Gunners, having scored six goals in his last 10 appearances.
After scoring four goals and assisting another two en route to the final, Pedro can be backed at 9/5 (2.80) to strike once again, while Willian is on offer at 21/10 (3.10) to add to his own four for the cup campaign.
With his own future up in the air, Alexis Sanchez represents the greatest goal-scoring threat at the other end of the pitch for Arsene Wenger’s side, having hit an impressive 29 for the season in all competitions.
Having struck five times in his last four fixtures, the 28-year-old looks like the best bet at 6/1 (7.00) to break the deadlock in the capital, and even more enticing at 9/5 (2.80) anytime odds.
Offering a different kind of threat, Olivier Giroud is priced at 2/1 (3.00) to fire for the fourth time in five matches, having been his side’s only scorer in a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge in the sides’ last encounter.
Top scorer in the competition with five goals from three ties, Theo Walcott is available at 16/5 (4.20) to score for the sixth time against Chelsea, with Mesut Ozil a 4/1 (5.00) shot to enhance already the most prolific season of his Arsenal career with a 13th goal for the campaign in the final game.
