LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Lukasz Fabianski has been selected to start in goal for Arsenal in today’s FA Cup final against Hull City at Wembley.
Fabianski, who has started every game of this year’s FA Cup for Arsenal, had been backed by manager Arsene Wenger to keep his place in the starting XI ahead of regular number one Wojciech Szczesny.
Starting the game as well are Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey, so does full-back Bacary Sagna, who is almost certainly to be playing his last match for the Gunners with Manchester City reportedly set to sign him before the World Cup.
Yaya Sanogo stats the game on the bench, with Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini, but there is no Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Tom Huddlestone and Matty Fryatt are amongst the starters tonight for Hull City.
James Chester also makes a surprise comeback and starts at the back alongside the likes of Curtis Davis, Ahmed Elmohamady and Liam Rosenior.
Arsenal: Fabianski, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, Giroud.
Subs: Szczesny, Vermaelen, Monreal, Rosicky, Wilshere, Flamini, Sanogo.
Hull City: McGregor; Davies, Bruce, Chester, Rosenior, Elmohamady, Livermore, Huddlestone, Meyler, Quinn, Fryatt.
