“Such a stab in the back” – These Chelsea fans cannot believe Tuchel has dropped key player for the FA Cup final vs Leicester City

A cup final is usually an easy team selection for a manager as you simply have to go with your best starting XI, but that’s not always the case.

It’s become common to play the back-up keeper in the cup competitions to keep them happy, but there has to be a temptation to go with the first choice when silverware is on the line.

Thomas Tuchel spoke about his team selection during the week and it was widely expected that Kepa would get to start, and that’s now confirmed as the starting XI has been released:
