Per Mertesacker makes first start in over a year, Danny Welbeck leads line
Per Mertesacker makes his first start in over a year whilst Danny Welbeck leads the line for Arsenal in the final of the FA Cup.
There have been numerous reports in the week about Arsenal's defensive injury crisis with Kieran Gibbs, Shkodran Mustafi, Gabriel Paulista and Laurent Koscielny all out, albeit the latter due to suspension.
This has led to Mertesacker being recalled, despite not having started a game since April 2016.
The Blues have no fresh injury concerns and thus manager Antonio Conte is able to name a full-strength team.
On the right he goes with Pedro over Willian whilst in the centre of midfield he picks Nemanja Matic over former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas in the only two really close decisions.
