Last 5 games

Despite some of the doom and gloom surrounding Arsenal, their start to the Premier League campaign hasn’t been a total disaster.

The Gunners currently sit fourth in the table heading into this clash at Stamford Bridge, having won three of their opening five matches. They did lose in midweek to Dinamo Zagreb, however.

As for Chelsea, their three Premier League defeats—already their same tally as last season—leave them lingering in am unfamiliar position just above the relegation zone.

Predicted lineups

Despite fielding a much-changed team in the Champions League this week, we can expect Jose Mourinho to go for his tried-and-tested formula against Arsenal on Saturday. That will mean Nemanja Matic and John Terry being drafted back in, while Kurt Zouma is expected to remain in defence.

The big question is regarding Branislav Ivanovic on the right. Does the manager keep faith in his off-form star? Or does he trust Baba Rahman to play at left-back after impressing on his debut? That would mean Cesar Azplicueta keeping hold of his natural position on the right should Rahman get the nod.

Team news

Chelsea

Forward Willian is out of Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Arsenal with a hamstring injury.
Striker Radamel Falcao, playmaker Oscar (both knee) and Pedro (thigh) could be available, but are doubtful.

Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is out for around three months following knee surgery, while defender Papy Djilobodji, who is not in the Champions League squad, could be included.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Rahman, Oscar, Ramires, Hazard, Cuadrado, Mikel, Traore, Djilobodji, Pedro, Remy, Costa, Matic, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Beeney.

Provisional squad: Begovic, Ivanovic, Fabregas, Zouma, Rahman, Oscar, Ramires, Hazard, Cuadrado, Mikel, Traore, Djilobodji, Pedro, Remy, Costa, Matic, Cahill, Terry, Blackman, Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Beeney.

Arsenal

Arsenal report no fresh injury worries from the midweek Champions League trip to Dinamo Zagreb ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match at Chelsea.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech is set to return against his former club, having been on the bench in Croatia, while defender Hector Bellerin and midfielder Aaron Ramsey are also back in the squad after being rested.

Centre back Per Mertesacker could be in contention again after recovering from illness. Midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for an operation on a hairline fracture in his left fibula next week, while forward Danny Welbeck and Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky (both knee) are also sidelined.

Provisional squad: Cech, Monreal, Koscielny, Gabriel, Bellerin, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ozil, Ramsey, Sanchez, Walcott, Ospina, Giroud, Campbell, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Debuchy, Gibbs, Arteta, Mertesacker

    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it seems
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

    First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out
    how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks!
