Chelsea v Arsenal - Early Team-News

Chelsea v Arsenal - Early Team-News

The big London derby is almost upon us and we`ve managed to gather together some early team-news.

Starting with Chelsea:

Antonio Conte has to decide whether, after he`s served his three-game suspension for the red-card he received against Burnley in the opening fixture of the 2017 / 2018 Premier League season, to recall his captain. Does he include Cahill in his starting eleven? What would be your decision?

Danny Drinkwater will not be available for selection, the midfielder, waiting for his first Chelsea start, has picked up a calf injury that will see him side-lined for around a month.

However, Antonio Conte has another big call to make. With Eden Hazard fit again, does he start with the Belgian international or utilise his skills from the bench as a substitute. What would you do?

Continuing with Arsenal:

Arsene Wenger will be without Theo Walcott, the forward picked up a calf injury in the Europa League match against FC Koln on Thursday evening, or was it in the early hours of Friday morning?

Still on the injured list and unavailable are Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla.
