Chelsea vs Arsenal: Will Willian Be Benched On Saturday ?

Chelsea take on Arsenal in the FA Cup final this weekend after successfully beating Manchester United in the semi-final.

The Blues are unbeaten in their last three meetings vs the Gunners and they go into this match at the back of a fine 2-0 win vs Wolves which helped them secure Champions League football.

Chelsea have won 9 of their last 10 matches in the FA Cup and with the kind of attackers he has, Frank Lampard will expect to pick up a win in the 90 minutes of the final.

This match will be a chance to pick up an important piece of silverware for the Blues and thereby end the domestic season on a high but the manager could opt to rest some of his key players given that they will still have to play in the Champions League against Bayern Munich.

Chelsea team news vs Arsenal:

Kepa Arrizabalaga was benched vs Wolves and some rumours claim the Chelsea boss can once again opt to use Willy Caballero in front of goal on Saturday at Wembley.

Lampard should once again select a three-man backline vs Arsenal including Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma and Antonio Rudiger.

N’Golo Kante has finally returned to training but the Frenchman might only be good enough to start on the bench for Chelsea during the weekend.

Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic should start in central midfield but Ross Barkley will also be pushing for a start. Reece James and Marcos Alonso will play as the two wing-backs.

There have been some reports that Willian might be benched for this match due to the recent rumours connecting him with a move to Arsenal.

While we do not think Lampard will be too eager to bench one of his best players but if he does then Mason Mount should fill up that hole on the right flank while Christian Pulisic will play on the other wing.

Olivier Giroud is clearly above Tammy Abraham in the pecking order and the Frenchman will lead the line against his former side on Saturday.
