One key player out – Arsenal predicted line-up to play Chelsea

Match Preview, NewsNow, Premier League


Arsenal might just be back on track after winning at home in the Premier League against Bournemouth last weekend and Cologne in the infamous Europa League game this week, but you have to go a long back to find our last win away at Chelsea. Despite some good recent results against the Blues, it was the 5-3 game in October 2011 that was our last three points at Chelsea’s expense away from home.

We won the FA Cup at Wembley in May against Chelsea, kick started their season with a 3-0 win at home, and we also won our last match against the Blues, lifting the 2017 FA community Shield back in May.

So, ahead of Sunday’s London derby, we have a look at a possible line up for the Gunners as we try to get our first win in nearly six years at The Bridge.

Goalkeeper:

Arsene Wenger will stick with Petr Cech in goal, with David Ospina, who let in a comedy effort against Cologne back to the bench as our cup keeper.

Defence:

Playing with three defenders at the back, we expect Laurent Koscielny to play at the centre of defence along with Mustafi and Monreal, Kolasinac and Bellerin should keep their places, after both scoring in the week against Cologne.

Midfield:

Wenger will be expected to use his full first team midfield regulars against The Blues, Mesut Ozil , Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey will probably start in the middle with the aforementioned Kolasinac and Bellerin overlapping down the wings.

Forward:

Also scoring in the week, striker Alexis Sanchez should be back in the starting line up, meaning the in-form Danny Welbeck could drop to the bench, while Alexandre Lacazette continues up front and will be hoping to add to his goal tally.
