Pat Nevin has admitted that Antonio Conte will have a number of difficult decisions to make when he picks his Chelsea starting line-up for the FA Cup final against Arsenal later this month.

The Italian manager is hoping to steer the Blues to a domestic double in his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge after his appointment as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor.

Chelsea will take on Arsenal at Wembley on 27 May as they look to win the FA Cup but Conte is going to have some selection dilemmas to ponder before the game.

And former Blues star Nevin feels that the decision to start Pedro Rodriguez or Willian, plus whether to go with Nemanja Matic or Cesc Fabregas, are going to be tough calls.

Writing in his column for Chelsea’s website, Nevin said: “What about the Pedro or Willian choice?

“That is a tough one though it pales when you consider how much time will be spent considering the relative merits of starting with Nemanja Matic or Cesc Fabregas. ”
