Arsenal have the opportunity on Saturday to clinch some silverware for the first time in nine years, with Hull City providing the opposition for the final of the FA Cup at Wembley. This is the competition in which the Gunners last triumphed, with Patrick Vieira leading his side to a penalty shootout victory over Manchester United.

Arsene Wenger is set to omit his first-choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny for the encounter, with compatriot Lukasz Fabianski to be retained having performed to distinction on Arsenal’s path to the final. The Pole saved two penalties in the last four win over Wigan, and has appeared in every tie.

The Arsenal manager is unlikely to offer an particular selection surprises, and the only possible change to an experienced line-up could be Nacho Monreal replacing Kieran Gibbs, who has been struggling with injury.

Bacary Sagna, meanwhile, could be making a farewell outing for Arsenal with his contract to expire in the summer. The France international is still wanted by the Gunners, but appears likely to agree a more lucrative deal with Manchester City. The 31-year-old has been an excellent servant to the club, and a first trophy would be a fitting way to bow out.

Predicted Arsenal XI to play Hull City…

Lukasz Fabianski; Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs; Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Lukas Podolski, Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla; Olivier Giroud.
