Frank Lampard has some selection decisions to make ahead of this afternoon’s game at Wembley Stadium.
Although the Premier League season may be over, it is quickly back to action for Frank Lampard and Chelsea this weekend.
The Blues have the short journey back to Wembley Stadium to take on London rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final as both teams aim to lift the prestigious trophy.
It is a final that is likely to be unlike any other, with it being played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, but with silverware on offer, players will be determined to end the season on a high.
Chelsea made the final due to an impressive 3-1 win over Manchester United in the semi-final, and they finished the season on a high by confirming their place in the Champions League with a 2-0 win over Wolves last weekend.
Attention for the Blues now though turns to the FA Cup as Frank Lampard looks to win his first trophy in management.
For the game, Chelsea have been handed an injury boost, with Lampard confirming that N’Golo Kante will be fit enough to make the squad after missing the last six games in all competitions with a hamstring injury.
Lampard has also confirmed that Willian, who also missed the game against Wolves due to injury, will too be available for selection against Arsenal.
However, it wasn’t all good news from the treatment table, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek ruled out of the match.
It means that Lampard will be without three players for the game as Loftus-Cheek joins long-term absentees Billy Gilmour and Marco van Ginkel on the sidelines.
So who will be available to Chelsea for the game? Here is the full squad that Lampard can pick from for the FA Cup final.
Full Chelsea squad: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero, Cesar Azpilicueta, Reece James, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christiansen, Kurt Zouma, Fikayo Tomori, Marcos Alonso, Emerson, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Willian, Pedro, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud, Michy Batshuayi, Faustino Anjorin.
