Thomas Tuchel and Emma Hayes
Thomas Tuchel has led Chelsea to two FA Cup finals, while Emma Hayes has won three Women's FA Cup trophies with the Blues

In a season where turbulence has taken place behind the scenes, the first teams have marched together on their path to glory.

The FA Cup finals are taking place on consecutive days at Wembley this weekend and will feature a match between the two teams.

The finals have not been held on the same weekend before, but it is not the first time the teams have tried for simultaneous success.

Manchester City will play for the WSL title on Sunday, while Thomas Tuchel's men will play for the FA Cup on Saturday.

The FA Cup, the Women's FA Cup and the FA Youth Cup were all won by Chelsea in the same season. Can they leave Wembley Way in blue by sweeping up the two trophies this weekend?

Hopefully. If the women can follow the first step, that would be great.

We will hope for the best. They just won their third straight WSL title, so they can win the double.

Tuchel admitted the sanctions handed to Roman Abramovich and off-field discussions around the new ownership have been a distraction at the club.

The uncertainty over player contracts, disruption to travel plans, and intense media speculation on the future of the club have had to be managed by the two, who have had a strong relationship since the German arrived in 2021.

They have had an ally in each other. They were pictured hugging at the training ground last week. When asked about it, he joked that he gave Thomas a hug because he thought he needed one.

It would mean a lot to all of us. It was hard to cope with and draining. It would be a big, big reward.

Between training sessions, the conversations are dominated by football.

We don't separate genders. We talk about coaching and dilemmas. It is an easy relationship to have with a coach who is open and welcoming.

Since he has been at the club, we have had a really good bond. They should kick things off in the right way.

'Open-top bus together?' - Chelsea's Mount and Cuthbert dream of FA Cup double

During her first week at the club, she remembered an encounter which summed up the culture at the club.

The first thing they said to me was "did you win this weekend?", but I can't remember who it was. It's all about winning.

The expectations were clear and it was a profound moment. I think we push each other internally. We are a family here. Is it in the genes? Yeah. It is definitely in the water.

The excitement at the prospect of a joint-celebration was evident as he sat opposite Scotland's Erin Cuthbert in an interview with Radio 1 Newsbeat, and he will be watching the women after playing in Saturday's final.

You have to win if we win. Mount joked that the top bus should be open.

It would be huge for both of them to win it. We are both doing big things. We can achieve even bigger things on the same weekend. If we both did it, it would be a special weekend.

Cesar Azpilicueta will be the men's skipper on Sunday, and he regularly shares messages with his counterpart, Magdalena Eriksson.

It is important to feel that the whole club is behind you. Both the men and the women are behind them. It means a lot.

It is already a big weekend for the club because of the men and women playing in the final.

The trophy would be even bigger if both teams lifted it. We will definitely be cheering for the men.
