The Chelsea FA Cup final line up vs Leicester

Timo Werner leads the Chelsea attack at Wembley for the Emirates FA Cup final...

Thomas Tuchel makes five changes from the midweek defeat to Arsenal, with Marcos Alonso among those returning to the team. The Spaniard joins Thiago Silva, Toni Rudiger, captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Reece James in an otherwise unchanged defence from the semi-final.

As indicated by Tuchel in the build-up to the game, Kepa retains his place in goal. N’Golo Kante is back in midfield after recovering from heel pain that kept him out in midweek, and partners Jorginho.

Mason Mount and Hakim Ziyech are the duo selected to support Werner in attack.
