Arsenal host Chelsea in a strong match in the 20th round of Premier League at Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea lost its last meeting against Southampton in the nineteenth round with two goals without reply. Arsenal led by its new coach, former team star Arteta tied with Bournemouth 1-1.

Arsenal have 24 points in 12th place, winning five games, drawing nine games and losing five games.

Chelsea have 32 points in fourth place, winning 10 games, drawing in two games and losing in seven games.

Arsenal will once more be without the services of Kieran Tierney and Sead Kolasinac, while Sokratis is probably going to miss out after sustaining a head injury within the Boxing Day clash against Bournemouth.

Rob Holding and Hector Bellerin are back in training and will make the matchday squad for the derby, while Dani Ceballos is additionally closing in on a return.

Gabriel Martinelli missed the Bournemouth game with a hamstring problem and won’t be involved on Sunday either, but the Gunners are going to be boosted by the return of Calum Chambers after serving his suspension. While the result was not favorable, there have been tons of positives to require for Arteta in his first game responsible. And it’s likely that he will keep the changes to a minimum.

Bernd Leno may be a certainty to feature in goal, with Chambers set to return to partner David Luiz at the guts of the Arsenal backline. Bukayo Saka need to continue at left-back within the absence of both Kolasinac and Tierney, but Bellerin might be in line to return at right-back before Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who had a forgettable outing on Boxing Day.
