Description: ARS Vs CHE Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Two traditional rivals meet each other once again as either side scours for its first bit of success this season.
Arsenal and Chelsea locking heads in a final has become customary across the last couple of seasons now. And the two clubs ensured that the tradition continued this term as well after winning their respective FA Cup semi-finals to seal their berth in today’s upcoming showpiece summit clash.
Two clubs who have dominated the marquee tournament, winning it 12 times in between them in the last 20 editions will take on each other today in bid to accrue their first trophy in what will be the last match of the English season for either side. This FA Cup glistening title is going to be rigorously and vigorously contested not only due to that narrative but also to help either of Lampard or Arteta win their first trophies at their clubs.
For Arsenal, the FA Cup comes bearing with it even more ramifications with the side needing to clinch the trophy today if they are to qualify for next season’s Europa League. It’s a proposition which will spur the competition’s most successful side on today as they look to put beside them a horrid Premier League sojourn which saw them finish in 8th spot.
ARS Vs CHE Dream11 Probable Winner
After enduring a horrendous season defensively, one which threaten to unravel their plans of making the Champions League, Chelsea showed everyone what they can do with a well rounded and clinical 2-0 win against Wolverhampton on closing day. That showing paired with their 4-1 bashing of Arsenal in the Europa League final last year holds the side in good stead with us envisaging the superior London club coming out of this one with a win.

While it was always going to be immensely difficult to compensate for Leno, Arsenal’s Emiliano Martinez has managed to do extremely well for himself. Despite being called up immediately in the midst of a tedious schedule, the shot stopper was undeterred with the player managing to bolster a massively weakened Arsenal backline with his outstanding brand of goal-keeping.
Shipping in 54 goals in the Premier League, not many had given Chelsea a chance of a cleansheet when the side went to take on a rampant Wolverhampton side out scouring for an Europa League place. However, Chelsea for once managed to knock sense into their heads with the side showing immense will, valour and resolve in a vigour filled defensive display to come out with a 2-0 win.
With the side escalating its performances in crunch situations, we envisage Chelsea managing to occult Arsenal from scoring today as well. That narrative paired with captain’s Cesar Azpilicueta’s 6 assists this season see us make him the first pick from the side.
Marcos Alonso loves himself a goal in London derbies and back in his favoured 3-5-2 formation today, he could easily end up scoring once more against Arsenal. Reece James has an akin attacking penchant and with Giroud there to get on his crosses and passes, the fullback will complete our triad from the club for this one.
Many had raised questions over Christian Pulisic’s first season at Chelsea. He came in hot at the club before subsequently nursing an injury, one which reduced his minutes to frugal appearances at the club.
However, the three month break did more than enough to see the new signing earn Lampard’s break. Working hard to prove himself, he torched his way to a staggering 8 goals this season, a figure given birth to by some alluring goals.
It sees us make him our first pick from the side with Mason Mount coming in as well from the side after getting a goal and assist against Wolverhampton. We have Matteo Kovacic complete the triad of picks from the club with the player in contention of emerging as Chelsea’s player of the season after making massive inroads in the league this term.
Arsenal on the other hand will see us rope in their midfield partnership of Dani Ceballos and Granit Xhaka. Had it not been for these two, the club would have failed to assert itself in the league and traverse its way past a gruelling schedule with the two names managing to help bolster a defence filled with chinks in it.
With 7 goals since the restart of the league, Olivier Giroud has ended reposing every bit of faith Lampard had earmarked in him. And he loves a goal against Arsenal, something which will spur him on this encounter as he looks to celebrate while mocking his old employers in a spitting image of the Europa League triumph.
Arsenal will elsewhere see their top scorer this season with 22 goals after he snagged the 2 goals and an assist against Watford, Aubameyang wrap up our set of selections for the day’s final.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His flawless touch at the moment and goals in three successive ties make it prudent to captain Giroud while Pulisic is the vice-captain.
