Mostly when we are favorites we tend not to do well. We will have the full team ready for this as Kante should also return. Not too sure about Tomori being ready or match fit for this one. This is also third time's the charm for us, as we lost in 2002 and 2017 with the last one being very controversial. It would be an excellent way to cap a good first season with a trophy and a top four finish. 

My Team

------------------------------------Caballero--------------------------------------

Azpilicueta--------------------Zouma----------------------Tomori (Rudiger if not fit)

----------------------------Kovačić--------Kante------------------------------

James-------------------------------------------------------------------Alonso

Willian------------------------Giroud----------------------------Pulisic---

I dislike 343 but we defend better with it without a doubt.

I’d be surprised if Kante is thrown in straight after being out...

should be a good game, Arsenal with a lot to play for and no doubt Chelsea wanting their first silverware with Lampard; form wise Chelsea looking better with Arsenal struggling against Watford. Would have loved us to have been in this final after the season we’ve had, talk all day about the importance of it but a trophy is a trophy.

Potentially a very high scoring game; though finals tend to disappoint. On paper it’s surely Chelsea but Arteta sprung a trap on Guardiola so can surely expose the Chelsea defence too.

Expected team, 3 at the back with Ainsley playing LWB. We're going to be very defensive, we have every chance of pulling off a game like Vs City. We will need some luck though. 

No Ozil as expected as well, apparently he is in Turkey. Hopefully that's the last of him, surely he will be looking for another challenge now? I'm hoping so anyway. xD

Surprised you're not commenting on how us and Chelsea haven't sold out our final allocation again. :ph34r:

More than 1/3 of Arsenal’s squad today from the academy (even if you don’t include Martinez and Bellerin).

Can't believe how Chelsea are treating Kepa. He deserves to start. Lampard is a terrible man.

Bright start from Chelsea paying off. Pulisic goal.

Pulisic has been great recently, he deserves that goal.

Arsenal defensively looking very passive. They're playing like they're up against City or Liverpool.

Aubameyang's pace is blistering, that looks like a penalty to me.

Definite pen. Didn't think it needed a long VAR check.

Great penalty goal by Aubameyang! That was well deserved, after he earned the penalty.

Foul started outside the box, no? 

I've just remembered when @Danny said ages ago that Aubameyang and Arsenal are the best example of a top player playing for a shite team and I was one of the people who argued with him over it. Well now I'm trying to get my head around Aubameyang and Rob Holding playing for the same side in an FA Cup final so I might be ready to admit I was wrong.

What's that genuine attempt to get the ball rule again?

Rudiger was covering so wasn't denial of a clear goalscoring opportunity. 

 

Arsenal have responded well to the Chelsea onslaught in first 10 mins. Shows to me Arteta has them playing for him and built back some kind of resilience about them.
