Former K24 presenter Betty Kyallo on Saturday August 1 excited fans after she posted a photo of herself donning a Chelsea jersey ahead of the FA Cup final against Arsenal.
She made it known to her social media followers that she would be supporting Frank Lampard’s Blues when they go up against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, despite the odds of either sides being in the balance.
It goes without saying that the mother-of-one is not the most ardent football fan in the world but on the big occasions, she is sure to keep up with the trend of the day.
At the other end of the ring, long-time Arsenal fan and Kiss FM presenter Carol Radull also flaunted a sultry photo of herself clad in a suave Arsenal home kit as she also typically took to show support to a club she has supported even at its lowest.
BBC correspondent Ferdinand Omondi was not left out either, as he posted a selfie of himself wearing a Chelsea-branded face mask.
Fans across the world are waiting with bated breaths for the FA Cup final where London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea will be renewing their rivalries.
Historically, Arsenal are the most successful club in the competition, having won it 13 times, seven of which were under Arsene Wenger.
That would imply that the odds would be slightly in the favor of the Gunners , but a look at the Chelsea squad and an overall analysis of who wants it more might indicate Frank Lampard’s men might be the hungrier of the side.
Frank Lampard in his pre match press conference on Friday July 31 confirmed that midfielder Ngolo Kante and forward Willian would be available for selection.
Kante was a notable absentee since the 3-0 defeat to Sheffield United, with Willian missing out on the Blues’ 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers to secure top four and Champions League football for next season.
Arsenal meanwhile confirmed through Mikel Arteta that defender Shkodran Mustafi would be out for the final.
Arguably Arsenal need to win more than Chelsea as it guarantees them Europa League football for next season, continuing their over 20 year streak for European football.
A win for Chelsea would cap off a fine first season for Frank Lampard.
