Possible Chelsea Starting XI Against Arsenal


Premier League leaders Chelsea will take on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunch time, looking to consolidate their position at the top of the league table.


The Blues are heading into the match on the back of a 2-0 victory against Galatasaray in the Champions League, a win that ensured their progression to the last eight.

However, they will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league, as they suffered a shock 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa in their last league match at Villa Park.

Team News: Defender David Luiz was fit enough to make the bench in the Champions League, but Ashley Cole is likely to miss through knee injury. Ramires and Willian both are suspended for this game after being sent off at Villa; the former set to miss three league games.

Nemanja Matic, who was ineligible to play in Europe, is set to return while German midfielder Andre Schurrle could come in as a direct replacement of Willian.

Samuel Eto’o has an impressive goal scoring record at home and he might start ahead of Fernando Torres.

Here is the possible line-up for Chelsea against the Gunners.

Prediction: 1-1; Chelsea are undefeated in their last 24 home matches in the Premier League, and a whopping 75 specifically under Mourinho. They’re undefeated in the last five games against the Gunners in all competition, but expect a hard fought draw.
