Chelsea v Arsenal: Predicted lineups

Published October 4th, 2014 - 01:44 GMT

Chelsea (5-1-0) remain at the top of the English Premier League and appear ready to continue to march towards returning their side back to the top of the English summit by next May.  Having defeated Arsenal by six goals in their last meeting, Jose Mourinho will be looking for more of the same this time around.

Ramires and Didier Drogba are the only missing stars for the Blues as Mourinho is likely to name the same starting XI from last weekend.

Arsenal (2-4-0) are riding high after seeing Danny Welbeck score his first career hat-trick against Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League during midweek. With an ever growing list of injured players Arsene Wenger for once is believed to be happy for a forthcoming international break.

Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott, Mathieu Debuchy, Olivier Giroud, Yaya Sanogo, Nacho Monreal and Serge Gnabry all are sidelined with none of them close to a return.

Projected Lineups

Chelsea XI: Courtois: Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Costa.

Arsenal XI: Szczesny: Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs; Flamini; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Wilshere, Sanchez; Welbeck.
