The latest Chelsea team news as Tuchel confirms Kepa to start FA Cup final

Leicester City vs Chelsea

Despite the Premier League season having not yet concluded, we are set to see the 2021 FA Cup final play out this weekend.

Arsenal are the current holders, but have already crashed out of the competition at the hands of Southampton.

This season’s finale will instead be contested by Leicester City and Chelsea.

The former have never before lined out in the showpiece occasion, whilst Chelsea are aiming to pick up the trophy for a 9th time.

Heading into the clash, Thomas Tuchel’s Blues are in the better form of the sides. Chelsea have been a dominant force since their new boss took the reins, with the German having already taken the scalp of countless top managers during his short stint in London.

Ahead of Saturday’s tie, meanwhile, Tuchel spoke to the media on Friday afternoon.

And the former PSG boss first went on to confirm that the Blues have a fully fit squad available to face Leicester:

“The whole group is available, Kova is with us again.”

The German also confirmed that, whilst Edouard Mendy remains Chelsea’s no.1, Kepa is in line to start the final:

“Nothing has changed; Edou is no1 but Kepa is a strong, strong goalkeeper that we have in our squad and he will play.”
