CONFIRMED: Arsenal vs Chelsea lineups – Walcott and Torres start
The Gunners have dropped down to third in the table after wins for Liverpool and Man City respectively over the weekend, but could re-establish a two point lead at the summit with a win over arch-rivals Chelsea.
Jose Mourinho has never lost a league game against Arsene Wenger, and he can guide the Blues above the Gunners if he can get the better of the Frenchman once more.
The London weather may have a real effect on the game, with the torrential downpour in the capital threatening to turn the pristine Emirates pitch into a mud bath…
Arsenal Starting XI: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Rosicky, Ramsey, Ozil, Walcott, Giroud
Subs: Fabianski, Monreal, Jenkinson, Flamini, Cazorla, Bendtner, Podolski
Chelsea Starting XI: Cech; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Mikel, Lampard; Ramires, Willian, Hazard; Torres
Subs: Schwarzer, David Luiz, Cole, Oscar, Mata, Schurrle, Eto’o
