    Think the team pretty much picks itself. Would prefer Leno to play but Cech was talking after the Valencia game like he knows he's starting the final. Might be hard to cope with Chelsea's midfield with this team but with Ramsey out there aren't many options unless Guendouzi gets the nod. The main positive with this team is that it might be able to get at Chelsea down the wings, something that worked well in the match at Stamford Bridge.

    Good chance for one of the players to come up with another iconic moment in a cup final v Chelsea

    This is the biggest game the club has had in the past decade, bar maybe the FA Cup final that ended our trophy drought.

    Let's smash 'em boys.

    So at least they can't cheat to win the game. It will minimize their slippery shoes in the penalty area.

    With Ramsey, it would have been a done thing.

    Hazard scares me, while Willian is quite good. Kante won't get fit in time, I hope

    Think he might go 4-2-3-1 after Iwobi's performance today. No need for 3 centre backs against farmers like Giroud and Higuain.

    Shattered that the Welsh lion isn't up for this.

    You just know he would have come up big.

    So absolutely no chance of Ramsey being back for this one? Honestly had he been available I would have us as favourites on the night.

    We need to control the midfield, nullify Hazard and press them from the front. They are aware that we need to take the initiative and it plays into their hands somewhat.

    If we score first, we can muscle our way over the line. Come on boys!

    Think Chelsea will be nonchalant.

    This is huge imo, Chelsea are not really built to come from behind. They only won two of the 14 matches in the league this season in which they conceded first.

    This could be the last Arsenal match I watch. If that lot win the CL, there's no coming back for me. Hopefully there'll be a happy memory to sign off with.

    Think we could smash them. Hopefully Hazard signs for Madrid by then. :lol:
