Just five minutes to go, and one Chelsea legend, and another Spurs legend, carry the FA Cup across the pitch.
Here's some pre-match banter.

And something from Eden Hazard to look to top off his season with more glory.
Here's a story on Conte looking to stay at Chelsea for many more years.
It's as expected for Chelsea. They have Diego Costa supported by Pedro and Hazard in attack. Kante and Matic will stop anything they can manage coming through, and the wing-backs Moses and Alonso are going to sprint up and down the wings.
Per Mertesacker is making his first start for Arsenal after a difficult year of injury and disappointment for the club captain. He'll be playing in a back three for the first time ever today. Yep, ever. Arsenal are suffering from a defensive injury crisis. Danny Welbeck is up front for Arsenal, so they will be looking to Alexis Sanchez for a reliable goal threat.
