Arsene Wenger looks likely to pick Petr Cech for Arsenal’s FA Cup final clash against Chelsea on Saturday.
- Arsenal v Chelsea kicks off at 5:30pm on 27 May
- Cech has kept 13 cleans sheets in all competitions this season
- Ospina has been between the sticks for three out of the five FA Cup clashes
- Wenger will ‘possibly’ pick Cech against Chelsea
Although David Ospina, who is pushing to leave Arsenal over the summer, started between the sticks against Preston, Southampton and Sutton, Cech was given the nod against Lincoln and most recently Manchester City during the semi-final.
And it seems that Wenger will look to his more experienced keeper again for the final against Cech’s former team, Chelsea.
Speaking ahead of the match, which will give the Gunners a chance to salvage something from their comparative disaster of a season, the manager hinted that 35-year-old could start.
“That is not decided,” he said.
“It is possible (that Cech will start), we will see.”
Cech’s kept a clean sheet and only shipped one goal (against City) during the two FA Cup clashes he’s been involved with this season.
This could be the sixth time – including the Community Shield – that the former Czech Republic international faces Chelsea since he left them for Arsenal in 2015.
