TEAM NEWS AND INJURY UPDATES

Chelsea will be without Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen against Arsenal.

“Kova is not ready for tomorrow,” said Tuchel. “So his personal race is on to make it to the squad to Wembley.

Tuchel said the season was not over for Christensen, and hopes for a speedy recovery.

Andreas, it’s better than we feared, it will be also a tough one, but the season is not finished for him hopefully. So we have realistic hopes that his latest comeback will be against Aston Villa”

Chelsea should line up with their go-to-formation with three centre backs at the back. Zouma should start ahead keeping in mind that Thiago Silva will be there for the cup final. Azpilicueta and Rudiger could be the other two CB’s. Reece James and Marcos Alonso as wingbacks and Jorginho and Gilmour in midfield. In attack, we should see a trio of Mount, Ziyech, and Havertz.

Smith Rowe was withdrawn against West Brom due to hamstring pain. They will be missing defender David Luiz due to a hamstring injury. Joining the injury list, Xhaka and Pablo Mari could also be out of the game. Odegaard will start at Stamford Bridge given their injuries.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be in the line-up. He’s recently recovered from malaria. He could feature upfront alongside Lacazette as Martinelli makes way. Kieran Tierney should start at left-back.

PREDICTED LINE-UPS AND MATCH PREDICTION:

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Gilmour, Alonso; Mount, Havertz, Ziyech

Arsenal: Leno; Chambers, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Elneny, Saka, Odegaard, Aubameyang; Lacazette.

CHELSEA 2-1 ARSENAL

In the North-West London Derby, Chelsea has not lost to Arsenal for 10 years at home. We predict the Blues to win 2-1 against the Gunners.
