2 min read

Chelsea have made two changes to their side from their defeat to Newcastle on Saturday. Emerson comes back into the fold to replace Reece James, which sees Azpilicueta shift over to right-back. Kovacic starts in the midfield in place of Mount, who drops to the bench.

ARSENAL SUBS: Dani Ceballos, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Rob Holding, Emiliano Martinez, Joe Willock, Matteo Guendouzi, Eddie Nketiah.

ARSENAL (4-2-3-1): Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz, Bukayo Saka; Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka; Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil, Gabriel Martinelli; Alexandre Lacazette.

CHELSEA SUBS: Marcos Alonso, Ross Barkley, Pedro, Willy Caballero, Kurt Zouma, Mason Mount, Michy Batshuayi.

CHELSEA (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson Palmieri; N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, Willian.

Arsenal are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions. Mikel Arteta’s men are still striving to become a clinical enough in the final third. They have been held to draws against Crystal Palace and Sheffield United in their last two matches. Gabriel Martinelli put the Gunners ahead last time out against the Blades, only to concede an equaliser to John Fleck seven minutes from time. Arteta will be seeking an improvement from his team with the potential of rising to eighth in the table with a win over Chelsea today.

Chelsea have to bounce back after suffering an agonising defeat at the hands of Newcastle United last time out. The Blues created chance after chance at St James’ Park, but were denied the breakthrough. They paid the price when Isaac Hayden headed home in stoppage time to hand the Magpies the three points. Frank Lampard’s men have not been able to pull away from the pack chasing them for the final Champions League spot. They’re five points clear of Manchester United in fifth place, but will be desperate to extend their advantage with a win over the Gunners tonight.

Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Premier League clash between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
