What sort of team are we expecting Chelsea to put out?

2nd rate id say, will this still be enough to beat a desperately poor Arsenal side?

Gunna rest a few with Saturday in mind Aspro surely? Not bargelike yet but they are on the drift....a difficult balancing act for Herr Tuthel.

Willian may have bagged himself a start after his goal on Sunday so thats one player he can forget about LaughLaugh
Report lurka May 12, 2021 12:28 PM BST
He'll rest a few but the players coming in will be fresh and will want to get a run in the finals so it might actually make them just as strong if not stronger than playing full strength after two big games on Weds/Sat

Fair point lurka. I don't think he'll throw the game away though. One or two absent perhaps.

Good point Lurka. I imagine he'll swap his keeper , give Gilmour another run out,start with Zouma and maybe Giroud DevilDevil
Report Whisperingdeath May 12, 2021 2:33 PM BST
Second place is not important!

Champions League football is. A win against Arsenal will almost certainly secure it or take them close. Losing tonight or even a draw will put them under unnecessary pressure. A win tonight with his best team gives them confidence and the players are on a roll. They can rest players after the Cup Final. Anything else would be madness.

I would though love Arsenal to do what they do best confound us. Show us they are not completely useless! I fear that might be too much to ask even against Chelsea seconds  as we have Chelsea thirds in our team! Willian looked good with Sake overlapping. I had never seen him pass the ball forward before the last game!

Chelsea's defence is playing very well as a unit atm. Arsenal seem to struggle to create chances with the first choice eleven. Really does depend on who Tuchel & Arteta choose to play. Draw good enough for Chelsea?
Report pushkin99 May 12, 2021 6:29 PM BST
The FA cup in reality means very little, it is these days a nice to win bauble, to add a bit of gloss onto a successful season.

Tuchel is a good and perceptive manager, clearly understanding that qualifying for next seasons CL is far more important. He may make changes, but I really can't forsee wholesale changes and playing the stiffs as United did last nite.
Report sofaking May 12, 2021 7:14 PM BST
Yeah, the FA Cup is just a novelty these days and Tuchel will play a strong team. A confident Chelsea side should easily maulicate this Arsenal rabble.

The Arse have been so poor this season - even worse than us and that is saying someting - that this is the kind of game they somehow spring a surprise.

FWIW, I laid Chelsea earlier at 1.72 for a few pennies and will let it ride at this stage.

Agree with that, strange they couldn't find the same resolve against Villarreal last week. I wish they had got the "woodwork" good luck they got last night against Villarreal last week.

Still worst season for 25+ years? and currently one point behind the Spuds who considering how good a squad they have continue to underperform. Spuds welcome to 7th place and qualification into Europa league booby prize next season.

If as seems likely that arteta stays in charge, then this will prove to be arsenals best season under him.

Their best players will leave, and he won't attract good players because there is zero chance of champions league (better chance of championship) football under him. All this allayed with his abysmal type of football.

It is an absolute given, but for the covid 19 influence, which prevented supporters from attending matches, he would be already gone as fans would have forced him out.

It beggers belief really that a team could show such resolve in a game that had very little meaning for them, yet a week earlier showed abject surrender in a game that would define their season.

Typical Arsenal, did it for 10yrs under wenger.

Flirted with the elite until christmas, wheels start to come off towards under of Jan and then by mid march out of everything bar the FA Cup, finish the season well, fans go off into the summer looking forward to next season with an FA Cup which most of the elite dont pay attention to due to european commitment and obtain the lite comp for the next season.

Arsenal win an FA Cup, but continue to be nowhere nearer to competiting then they did 10yrs ago......repeat repeat repeat.

They will most probably finish 7th or 8th and Arteta will be given a chance to continue his work, but will full the plan of the last 15yrs,,,,,, flirt, bottle, eliminate and finish season well with maybe the new micky mouse cup the FA Cup as an trophey, a competition the fellow big boys put Team  C out to play because other priorties
