Jim Gavin has named an unchanged side to face Mayo in this Sunday's All-Ireland football final.

The team picked to start this weekend's game is the team that actually started against Kerry in the semi-final, rather than the team that was named before the match.

Thus, Kevin McManamon is in line to start his first All-Ireland final, having been used off the bench in Dublin's wins in 2011, 2013 and 2015.

It had been rumoured that Michael Darragh MacAuley would be kept in reserve for the game's latter stages, but as it stands, he will be in from the off, partnering Brian Fenton in midfield.

The game throws in at 3.30pm.
