Kerry boss Eamonn Fitzmaurice has made one change to his starting XV from the facile victory over Tyrone last Sunday for their Division One final clash with Dublin, who are seeking a five-in-a-row.

Jonathan Lyne comes into the half forward line with Kevin McCarthy moving to the corner - Barry John Keane is the player to lose out.

The substitutes bench is notable for the return of Kieran Donaghy to the match day squad for the first time in 2017.

The team contains just eight players from Kerry side that lined up in last year's league decider with Marc Ó Sé, Aidan O’Mahony and Colm Cooper retired, Kieran Donaghy, Bryan Sheehan and Darran O’Sullivan listed among the subs while Shane Enright is on the injured list.

Kerry (SF team v Dublin): B Kealy; F Fitzgerald, M Griffin, R Shanahan, P Crowley, T Morley, P Murphy; D Moran, A Maher; J Lyne, M Geaney, D Walsh; K McCarthy, P Geaney and S O'Brien.
