Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed that both N’Golo Kante and Willian are fit enough to be included in the match squad to face Arsenal in the FA Cup Final at Wembley this weekend. Kante will be undergoing a last minute fitness test as the French midfielder has been out for several weeks.

“Yes, Kante and Willian are in the squad and we will see if they are fit enough to be involved,” Lampard said in a news conference ahead of the game. Willian had featured for Chelsea in every game since the restart in June, but was sidelined in their final league game of the season against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Many feared that Willian, who is expected to be leaving this summer, had played his final match for the club. However, Lampard revealed that the winger will be part of his match day squad. Ruben Loftus-Cheek will not play for Chelsea against the Gunners as the midfielder has picked up a knock and has been ruled out.
