Confirmed line-ups: Arsenal vs Chelsea: Maitland-Niles & Bellerin start for Gunners | Arsenal Station

Arsenal desperately need victory to salvage something from a horrid season as we take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley this evening.

Emi Martinez continues in goal with Bernd Leno still recovering from a knee injury while Rob Holding starts in defence after Shkodran Mustafi was ruled out until October with a hamstring strain. David Luiz and Kieran Tierney line-up alongside Holding in the back three.

Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos start in midfield so Lucas Torreira is on the bench. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be Arsenal’s main goal threat in attack while Alexandre Lacazette leads the line up front.

These are the teams for the game:


Martinez; Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Maitland-Niles; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
