Breaking News ! Mikel Arteta and Frank Lampard have an opportunity to secure their first pieces of silverware as managers this weekend as Arsenal and Chelsea compete in the FA Cup final at Wembley. Arteta took charge in December and although he's improved the Gunners, he could only guide the club to an eighth-place finish in the Premier League. Lampard, meanwhile, has been at the helm since last summer and has managed to guide the Blues to finish inside the top four, ensuring a place in next season's Champions League. The two former midfielders are only at the start of their managerial journey, yet both will be desperate to secure the trophy considering the impact that winning could potentially have on future success.

Arsenal and Chelsea have both suffered dramatically from set-pieces this season and given football is a low-scoring sport, one moment of invention or lapse of concentration could decide the winner. Arteta's outfit have conceded 48 Premier League goals this season, but only 27 from open-play. 14 of the goals that have been shipped have come from corners and set plays, with the rest being penalties.

They have conceded 54 goals, with 15 deriving from corners, direct free-kicks and set plays. Lampard has since stated that the Blues should sign tall players to resolve the problem, which doesn't sound particularly convincing.

. It's reasonable to suggest that - amongst other aspects - the team that performs the best on the day from dead-ball situations could end up lifting the trophy. Lampard's men lined up against Liverpool recently, for example. They had a corner to defend and Reece James was marking Gini Wijnaldum, shown below.

The Dutch midfielder failed to score, but the Gunners should look to explore moves of that nature.

They conceded a goal against Aston Villa after Tyrone Mings flicked on a header at the near post to Trezeguet, who was cleverly positioned in space near the back post. The Egyptian finished once presented with a shooting opportunity, and the Gunners lost 1-0. Ultimately, cup finals can be decided by the finest of margins and with that being the case, it'd make plenty of sense for Lampard and Arteta to dedicate more time to tailored routines this week as they prepare for Sunday's clash.
