Download Arsenal vs Chelsea 2 – 1 – Highlights 01 August 2020 F.A cup Final
Frank Lampard matches Arsenal by fielding a 3-4-3 formation of sorts, which has been the case for Chelsea’s last three matches, including the semi-final win over Manchester United. The Blues are unchanged from their 2-0 win over Wolves last weekend, meaning Caballero is preferred to Kepa in goal. Willian has been carrying a knock and is not in the matchday squad.
Arsenal have had good success with a three-man defence and Mikel Arteta sticks with that formation today. There is one change from the 3-2 win over Watford on the final day of the Premier League season – Bellerin returns at right wing-back in place of the benched Willock. Aubameyang scored both semi-final goals and starts alongside Lacazette and Pepe.
