Team News

Arsene Wenger is having a big defense selection issue, as Laurent Koscielny is suspended, Gabriel is out injured and Shkodran Mustafi is struggling with concussion which means the inexperienced Rob Holding and Mertesacker will be holding the defense for Arsenal.

Chelsea on the other hand, have had a few injury scares this season and presently do not have any injury concerns as they head into the final.


Chelsea have been close to invisible this season having only few teams defeat them in all competitions but I feel Arsenal has more to fight for than Chelsea and could possibly cause some damage in the Chelsea defense but I see Chelsea taking a narrow win

Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea
