Arsenal XI vs Chelsea: Confirmed team news, predicted lineup, latest injuries for FA Cup final

July 31, 2020

 

Mikel Arteta’s team for Arsenal’s FA Cup final with Chelsea at Wembley largely picks itself.

 

Since football returned last month, the Spaniard has begun to find his favoured XI and they should start on Saturday.

 

Bernd Leno is back in training, but Emiliano Martinez will play in goal. Rob Holding should come into the back-three due to Shkodran Mustafi’s injury, with David Luiz and Kieran Tierney alongside him.

 

The key debate is around who starts at left wing-back, with Bukayo Saka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles contenders. The latter excelled against Manchester City in the semi-final and therefore will hope to start.
