It’s the 150th FA Cup final.
It’s our 16th, and the 5th in the last 6 years.
It’s time to be heroes.
It’s time to be the bad guys.
It’s time to win.
Tuchel makes just one change from Wednesday, with Thiago Silva coming back in for Andreas Christensen. There’s no Kai Havertz in the squad, presumably due to injury or illness. (UPDATE: hamstring injury.) Kovačić starts, sans ankle ligament.
Here we go!
