Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has named an unchanged starting XI from the last game, for the FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley.
Chelsea have made no changes to the starting XI from their last Premier League game against Wolves for the FA Cup final against arch-rivals Arsenal at the Wembley Stadium.
Manager Frank Lampard has once again thrown his weight behind veteran goalkeeper Willy Caballero over Kepa Arrizabalaga for the big game. He will continue to be guarded by a backline of captain Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger with Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori on the bench.

Reece James and Marcos Alonso slot in as the two wing-backs as expected, with Emerson Palmieri on the bench. In midfield, Lampard has stuck with the partnership of Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, despite the return of N’Golo Kante, who is named among the substitutes.
Mason Mount, who was brilliant in the game against Wolves, continues on the right flank, while Christian Pulisic gets the nod on the left. Olivier Giroud spearheads the attack for Chelsea against his former club. Willian hasn’t been able to recover completely and is absent from the matchday squad.
Callum Hudson-Odoi, Pedro and Tammy Abraham provide attacking options from the bench.
Chelsea Confirmed XI: Caballero; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Pulisic
