CONFIRMED Arsenal team to face Chelsea in the FA Cup Final

So the Big Day is here at last, as Arsenal take on Chelsea with the aim of winning their third FA Cup Final in the space of four years, but what formation has Wenger decided to go for with our defensive crisis at the moment.

It was revealed by Wenger yesterday that Wenger was going to keep faith with David Ospina between the sticks, with Petr Cech reported to be devastated to miss the big game against his former club.

Holding, Monreal and Big Mert are the back three, with Koscielny being a big miss after his sending off last week. Both Bellerin and the Ox are placed as the wing-backs-

In the centre we again have Xhaka and Ramsey being given his new roaming midfield role. Ozil and Sanchez were never going to be dropped for this, and Danny Welbeck is given the nod over Giroud.

Come on you Gunners! Let’s do this!

    Ospina, hope he does well.
    Ox left wb, interesting they are going to abuse that side and get some joy I feel.

  5. Godswill says:

    As a fan I always think of a win. And win we shall.
    I will believe till the last whistle.
    Saying Wenger out cannot make me wish we lost. I might not like what is going on but I don’t hate Arsenal.

  7. John says:

    The team selection is right on…….based available players……good team Arsenal….

  8. Uzi Ozil says:

    Mertsacker worries me, he is not a bad player but I feel it is a big game for him knowing fully well that he has been injured this season and haven’t really played in this new formation apart from as a sub against Everton. Hopefully, the midfielders will help the defense. Prove us wrong Mertsacker. C’mon Arsenal. I wanna win this!

  9. manny says:

    Lol…This is a weak team..
    #Wenger Out
    #Thanks For the memories

  10. twig says:

    Pre match talk: Kante, Kante, Kante!
    Post match talk: Xhaka, Xhaka, Xhaka!!!

    COYG!

    1. Bori Moses says:

      Sure,I also believe after game Xhaka will the topic for discussion

  11. Bori Moses says:

    I know we have injury crisis but I feel a win within me.2 – 0 to our favour.Wenger must try his best to keep Sanchez .Arsenal all the way.

  12. ramterta says:

    we believe in miracles but sometimes miracles can only do so much.
    Today a victory will need too much of a miracle.
    It would be impossible

    1. Bori Moses says:

      Hmmm
      But never under rate Arsenal in final matches,Trust me.

    2. Dee23 says:

      Never say never

  13. JustJoy says:

    One lazy tower is the problem.. Hope Holding and Nacho protects.. Never prayed for a doom day… But some lads in the squad deserve a silverware.

  14. Ignasi says:

    Utter humiliation.

    3, 4, 5, 6??

    1. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

      I’m feeling that?
      Has Anyone got a spare Mars bar? … I’m feeling depressed?

  15. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

    What’s the odds for most of you switching off by halftime? ?
    This game was going to be difficult even with a fully available squad lol

    Man, we need more than a miracle, Ospina needs to play the game of his life, The ref needs to be a secret Gooner, the whole of the Chelsea squad including their manager need to be suffering from hangover and then maybe, just maybe, we might have half a chance ?

  16. jisig says:

    I want Matersacker to shame you all deluded Arsenal fans today. The guy can save us ball in the corner kicks which we have been conceding all season. Its Ramsey thats the real problem here.

    1. khangunners says:

      Haha look who is calling others deluded. ??. No need to complain though hehe just gonna watch it

  17. Vanpayslip is the truest/name a troll I ain't influenced says:

    Is he trying to lose on purpose?

  18. luvdaguns says:

    your first match of the season is the FA cup final… oh no…

  19. GrahamB says:

    Up the Arse! Cmon boys!
    Peace and Love x

  20. Martin says:

    I feel sorry for Cech, with our defensive problems can’t understand why Wenger has left out our most experienced player, especially as it looks like Ossian is leaving this summer.

  21. Ronny says:

    How long can we hold out for then?

  22. Ronny says:

    Off side, bullocks!!

  23. Ronny says:

    Get in!

  24. Dee23 says:

    1-0,4 minutes in. Arsenal are up for it today.

  25. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

    Boooom the Refs a Gooner ??

    1. Godswill says:

      You think the referee is an idiot? Ramsey didn’t touch the ball.

      1. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

        Lol?? what you saying… The refs an idiot for being a Gooner? ?

  26. Elliot says:

    Go on holding, give him $hit bud!

  27. Ronny says:

    Holding pointing to his head at Costa calling him mad love it that should settle nerves. Game on.

    1. Godswill says:

      Sorry I did not mean to thumb down but up.
      I love this Holding of a boy. The best buy of the year.

  28. Dee23 says:

    Chelsea are scared and unsettled. This is are first time playing them with this system.

  29. Ronny says:

    Ramsey is on it today.
    That’s due to his goal bringing confidence I guess

  30. Elliot says:

    Wow, so far we are playing extremely well.

    1. Elliot says:

      Let’s not get carried away though ?

  31. Ronny says:

    Chelsea been on.the piss all week?
    We need to the second quickly.

  32. Tim says:

    Arsenal have angered the beast. I fear the worst.

  33. LagosGunner says:

    It should have been Arsenal 3-0 in just 20 mins

    Oh my God!

  34. jisig says:

    I hope u are all seen the experience of BFG??

  35. Ronny says:

    @jisig.
    How are you managing to be playing as cb and on here? #youre big in disguise.

    Yes he’s experienced and yes he’s good in the air.
    Let’s hope it’s enough today.

  36. Ronny says:

    3 great chances gone if we’d just had one of them 2-0 would be massive.

  37. RSH says:

    One of our best looking halves all season. Problem is we can’t finish chances. Hoping they don’t come back to bite us. Everyone really on their game today so far though.

  38. lcebox says:

    Where has this team been hiding all year?

    Anyway great so far long may it continue.

  39. Tim says:

    Guaranteed Arsenal loss due to missed chances.

  40. Fatboy Gooney, Too Fat to track back. says:

    Wow, So where has this fighting spirit been hiding then??
    Well, it’s either that or Chelsea are still hungover from their title celebrations lol.. I can imagine them saying “hey, fork it, it’s only Arsenal in the final” as they popped open another crate of champagne.

    Shame Ozil’s chip wasn’t hit a little bit harder. (Off the line)
    Shame Welbeck hit the post & Ramsey couldn’t juggle the ball in from 2 inches out.
    Shame we had another chance cleared off the line.

    Unbelievably we could have been 4 nil up at the break?
    Let’s hope the lads can keep this up.

  41. Abhi Ranjan says:

    Mertasacker for the president!!!

    Jokes aside. He has been having a brilliant game.

  42. gmv8 says:

    This referee is ludicrous – we get a yellow card for even breathing on them Costa should’ve had at least two yellow card by now and nothing

  43. Arsenal_Girl says:

    We may rue our missed chances in first half
    1-0 is not a big deal to Chelsea and they could come firing in the 2nd half.

    But we have played very well so far
    Let’s hope we hold them off until the end

    We are playing this match like it’s an FA Cup final (sorry lol)

    1. DarkPope says:

      bottlers lmao!!! 1-1..

      1. Tidan2 says:

        LOOOOL. Guess Not.

  44. jisig says:

    Bellerin has cost us.

  45. Dee23 says:

    Yes Ramsey!!!!

  46. Craig West says:

    Allegri to be announced post cl final.

  52. gmv8 says:

    Very happy for the team and AW – hope Kroenke paid for his seat , the freeloader.

  53. Maj says:

    This kind of perfomance is what you get after you have been humiliated out of the CL after 19 years presence.. Congratulations Arsenal and Wenger but still want him gone. Arrogance prevented him from adopting the current formation for years after Sunday-Sunday football teams adopted it.
