Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are nervously looking ahead to tomorrow’s FA Cup final clash with Chelsea, where the Gunners are widely considered to be huge outsiders in the race for glory at Wembley.
Arsene Wenger’s side come into the match on the back of a disappointing end to the Premier League season where they missed out on a Champions League spot on the final day, whilst Chelsea lifted their second league title in three years.
The Blues are now looking to secure a domestic double and Arsenal are just looking for redemption and success that can appease the fans after a campaign where many have turned their back on the side and vastly criticised Arsene Wenger.
However, the Gunners have huge concerns ahead of tomorrow’s clash as defensive trio Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista are all expected to be unavailable, which means Per Mertesacker is set to make his first start in over a year.
Surprisingly, Mertesacker has admitted this week he doesn’t know if he’s fully fit ahead of Arsenal’s biggest game of the season – and fans on social media are far from happy with the situation surrounding their side.
Don't play please, stay on bed
