24 degrees and dry at Wembley this afternoon.

Remember we'll have extra-time and penalties if needed.

Mesut Ozil has gone to Turkey instead of going to Wembley with the rest of the Arsenal team. His future at the club is in serious doubt.

Prev.
Chelsea are unchanged from the team which beat Wolves 2-0 on the last day of the Premier League season.
Prev.
Arsenal make one change from the 3-2 victory over Watford. Bellerin is in for Willock.
