How Chelsea, Arsenal will lineup for FA Cup final at Wembley today

FRANK Lampard is searching for his first piece of silverware as a manager.

The Gunners – who are the most successful team in the competition’s history – will be up against Chelsea.

The Chelsea boss has a big selection dilemma on his hands with N’Golo Kante and Willian nearing full fitness while Ruben Loftus-Cheek has suffered a knock in training, according to The report.

Lampard won the FA Cup four times as a player and knows he will have to pick the perfect XI to come out trumps against Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.

Willian was left out against Wolves last time out due to an unspecified injury but is expected to be fit for Wembley.

The Chelsea boss still faces a massive selection headache over the Brazilian following a bombshell announcement by his agent.

Kante picked up a hamstring injury in the 3-0 win over Watford earlier this month and has missed six matches since.

Lampard has confirmed the French midfielder is in the squad but it is unknown whether he will make the cut on Saturday.

Willy Caballero, 38, is likely to get the nod between the sticks over troubled stopper Kepa.

Kepa fears he has played his last game for Chelsea, having been axed for the Blues’ final Prem game against Wolves, with Caballero keeping a clean sheet.

Former Arsenal centre-forward Olivier Giroud is likely to be leading the line having found the net last time out.

In the Arsenal side, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored twice as they booked their spot in the final with a win over Manchester City.

The Gabon international is expected to keep his spot in the starting XI for today’s trip to Wembley.

And this time he could form part of a front-three alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe.

Arteta is expected to start with them three leading the line ahead Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos.

Nigerian Bukayo Saka has surely done enough to earn his spot on the other side after a string of impressive performances.

At the back, Arsenal could start with Kieran Tierney, David Luiz and Rob Holding.

Emiliano Martinez will keep his spot between the sticks as Bernd Leno is injured.

After Arsenal finished eighth in the league table, Arteta has called for his players to give the fans what they want.

Speaking to Sky Sports about winning the competition, he said: “It would be absolutely great.

“Everyone’s worked so hard since I joined here to try bring this club back to winning titles so if we can achieve that, I will be delighted.

“But not for myself; for the players and the club that has been through some very difficult moments in the last few seasons.

“And as well for our fans because they really deserve for us to give them some joy and nice moments.”

The Gunners have won both of their previous FA Cup finals against Chelsea – in 2002 and 2017.

But Chelsea will enter the clash with confidence after losing just one of their past 15 FA Cup games.
