So Arsene has gone with the same 11 that beat Hull City last weekend which means a return to the bench of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Perez after their impressive League Cup performances. Many are having a meltdown about our central midfield, I would personally perfer to see how the players who are starting actually perform on the day first. I know, I am a little backwards like that.
As I mentioned in my preview, I am a little concerned about the teams overall lack of height so I hope we keep Chelsea set pieces to a minimum this afternoon. Arsene has gone for a rather attack heavy bench today which means that Giroud has replaced Elneny in the squad.
I hope we can do them this time, the nerves are really starting to kick in now. Oh yeah and also Cesc Fabregas starts against his former club after a frustrating start of the season on the bench. Let's hope he does not have another good game as he was really good against us last season at the Emirates.
Let's win this one please boys.
Confirmed Line Up:
Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Holding, Xhaka, Ox, Lucas, Giroud
