Arsenal take on London rivals Chelsea in the early hours of Sunday morning as they meet at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

This is the final of the Florida Cup and whilst it will hardly be prized silverware, winning would be a nice boost for either side.

Arsenal’s big team news surrounds Oleksandr Zinchenko as the new signing from Manchester City is given an immediate start.

Zinchenko starts at left back with Ben White on the right, whilst William Saliba partners Gabriel Magalhaes at centre back, with all four in front of Aaron Ramsdale.

Thomas Partey partners Granit Xhaka in midfielder with Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli supporting Gabriel Jesus up top.

Summer signing Marquinhos makes the Arsenal bench, joining Matt Turner, Hector Bellerin, Reuell Walters, Cedric Soares, Nuno Tavares, Pablo Mari, Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Mohamed Elneny, Nicolas Pepe, Reiss Nelson, Folarin Balogun and Eddie Nketiah.

Chelsea go with Edouard Mendy in goal and he will be playing behind a back four as Thomas Tuchel switches to what looks like a 4-3-3.

Reece James, Trevoh Chalobah, Thiago Silva and Emerson Palmieri make up the back four for Chelsea.

Conor Gallagher is given a chance to shine in midfield, joining Jorginho and Mason Mount in the engine room.

Kai Havertz leads the line with Raheem Sterling and Timo Werner either side of him in a dangerous front three.

Ben Chilwell makes the bench alongside Marcus Bettinelli, Teddy Sharman-Lowe, Marcos Alonso, Cesar Azpilicueta, Ethan Ampadu, Kalidou Koulibaly, Malang Sarr, Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Hakim Ziyech and Michy Batshuayi.
