Arsenal v Chelsea
Saturday 17:30, BBC One and BT Sport 1.
Match Odds: Arsenal 4.94/1, Chelsea 1.845/6, The Draw 3.9.
It's a London derby in Saturday's FA Cup final - and league champions Chelsea start as strong favourites. Indeed, their price has shortened considerably since the market opened. Having initially traded at around 2.01/1, they're now closer to 1.855/6.
That can be explained by the huge problems faced by their opponents. Arsene Wenger's Arsenal have a serious injury crisis in defence, and Wenger's main task here will be trying to create a cohesive backline without some of his key performers.
The major issue is that Laurent Koscielny, Arsenal's defensive leader and the man who has worn the armband for most of the campaign, is suspended after his ludicrous two-footed lunge brought a red card against Everton on the final day. The problems are compounded by the fact that Shkodran Mustafi has been ill after suffering concussion, and though rated as doubtful rather than ruled out, that's not something you can take a chance with.
Brazilian centre-back Gabriel is also out, and while not a regular he's looked better in this three-man defence, and provided probably his best display in an Arsenal shirt against Manchester City in the 2-1 semi-final victory. Per Mertesacker, meanwhile, is available but his 40 minutes against Everton last Sunday is his only playing time all season. Can Wenger throw in Arsenal's club captain after such little match practice?
There's also the question of whether Wenger will consider it appropriate to abandon the 3-4-3 system he's used in recent weeks, and switch to a 4-2-3-1. That probably causes more problems, however, so he's trying to find three defenders from somewhere.
One will be Nacho Monreal, who has looked comfortable on the left of the three. The other seems likely to be Rob Holding, impressive in this system but up against Eden Hazard, the Premier League's trickiest attacker. The central centre-back remains to be seen. Wenger will be keen to play Mustafi if possible - and he's the type of player capable of outmuscling Diego Costa. If not, it looks like Mertesacker, though whether he'd last 90 - or 120 - minutes remains to be seen.
Wenger has other selection issues. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has recovered from injury, a big boost considering how comfortable he's looked on the right of this system - but is he fit enough to start over Hector Bellerin? Could he be used on the left, where Kieran Gibbs hasn't performed well?
There's also a major selection upfront, where Wenger is choosing between the speed of Danny Welbeck and the hold-up play of Olivier Giroud. The latter hasn't performed well against Chelsea in the past, and Arsenal look better in this system when Welbeck stretches teams.
It's also worth remembering that Wenger has deployed his 'cup goalkeeper' in Arsenal's last two FA Cup finals - Lukasz Fabianski and then Wojciech Szczesny. He fielded David Ospina for much of this cup run, but his injury for the semi-final means Petr Cech played, and he should start here against his old club.
In stark contrast, Chelsea have no injury problems whatsoever, and Antonio Conte only really has one decision to make - should he be bold and let Cesc Fabregas loose against his former side? That would provide extra midfield creativity, and through-balls for the front three. It seems far more likely, however, that Conte will be scared of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez drifting between the lines, and use both Nemanja Matic and N'Golo Kante in front of the defence.
Ozil and Sanchez seems Arsenal's only real area of strength here, and Chelsea's defensive task will be largely about stopping balls into them.
Chelsea's wing-backs, Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses, caused Arsenal real problems in Chelsea's 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge back in February, but now Arsenal are matching Chelsea's system this should be less of a problem.
The problem, however, will be that Arsenal won't have a spare man against Chelsea's front three. With Hazard's acceleration against the inexperienced Holding, Pedro's runs in behind his compatriot Monreal, and Costa's strength against a centre-back unlikely to be fully fit, it's difficult to see past a Chelsea victory here.
