Here it is: Final game of the season. If, by some miracle, Arsenal wins 10-0 and Chelsea loses 10-0, the Gunners will vault the Blues for third place. Otherwise, it's fourth place and a tune-up for next weekend's FA Cup Finals. The relative meaninglessness of this game, however, isn't preventing Arsene Wenger from rolling out one of Arsenal's strongest-possible sides. (Norwich is almost certainly relegated by the way -- it has its own near-impossible goal differential to make up to avoid its fate at 18th place.)
As you'll recall, Arsenal looked its best all season (arguably) in hosting Norwich earlier this year -- a match which included the magical Jack Wilshere goal, instantly declared Goal of the Year by many fans right then and there.
Match is on MSNBC, by the way; Rachel Maddow will probably not be involved. The full schedule for Championship Sunday is here.

Nathan Redmond replaces Steven Whittaker for City, while there's a spot on the bench for Jamar Loza. Thoughts? #NCFC pic.twitter.com/dY2V5MCZJF— Norwich City FC (@NorwichCityFC) May 11, 2014
