The first big London Derby of the season is going to be another cracker of a match as Arsene Wenger takes his side to Stamford Bridge to face a Chelsea side which is not at the best shape at the moment. The Champions are currently at 17th in the table and would want to give their best to maintain Wenger’s inability to defeat them in the League.
Both Arsenal and Chelsea will miss key figures with injuries. Per Mertesacker is yet to recover from his chest illness, while Chelsea will miss out on Willian and Pedro who are out with slight knocks.
Wenger made six changes to his team in mid week only to find out that his second choice players are not upto the mark and we expect him to bring back the likes of Ramsey, Bellerin and Coquelin who missed the Champions League game.
The Blues, although, won their UCL game 4-0, the likes of Hazard and Remy were poor. Can Hazard kick start his campaign against his favourite opponents this week? Here are the possible Lineups:
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Begovic; Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Matic, Fabregas; Ramires, Oscar, Hazard; Costa
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Cech; Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal; Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez; Walcott

We expect Chelsea to win the game 1-0 in a closely fought encounter with Hazard breaking his shambles in front of goal.
