Chelsea will be hoping to replicate the form which saw them win at Tottenham Hotspur last weekend when they travel to Arsenal for their latest English Premier League fixture on Sunday.
The Blues won 2-0 at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium but then fell to a home defeat to Southampton by the same scoreline on Boxing Day.
Chelsea’s latest opponents comes in the form of another London rival, Arsenal, a side who have failed to win any of their last three league fixtures. They Gunners have limped to recent draws with Everton and AFC Bournemouth while they were thumped 3-0 by Manchester City in their last home fixture.
The Gunners go into the match without defender Rob Holding while midfielder Dani Ceballos is also out. New Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will assess the fitness of Gabriel Martinelli and Hector Bellerin ahead of the match while defender Calum Chambers is available following suspension.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard could hand late fitness tests to Reece James and Marcos Alonso ahead of the trip to The Emirates Stadium but Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains sidelined. Midfield trio Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic could all be available for selection after missing the Boxing Day defeat to Southampton.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm on Sunday afternoon and will be screened live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League channels.
