Kolasinac, Cedric And Saka To Start, Pepe On The Bench: Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Chelsea

Arsenal went with a back four against Watford last weekend, and it’s very likely that head coach Mikel Arteta will revert to three at the back for tomorrow’s FA Cup final against Chelsea.

The Gunners gave up too many chances against the Hornets so Sead Kolasinac could return to the starting eleven, playing alongside Rob Holding and David Luiz in the centre of defence.

With Hector Bellerin touch and go with a calf injury, Cedric Soares will may come in on the right flank with Kieran Tierney as the left wingback. Emi Martinez is expected to keep his place in goal ahead of the fit-again Bernd Leno.


In midfield, Arteta rarely deviates from selecting Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos when both are fit, so the two will almost certainly be named in the lineup.

There will be some selection decisions to make in the front three, but Bukayo Saka is likely to come in for Nicolas Pepe, playing alongside Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up front.

Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Chelsea:

Martinez, Cedric, Holding, Luiz, Kolasinac, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang
