Arsenal take on Chelsea in a little under 24 hours, here’s how we think The Gunners will line up. It’s a massive match for both teams as fourth take on fifth in one of the most important games of the season so far.
Match: Arsenal v Chelsea
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick Off (GMT): Sat 24 Sep 17:30
It will be a difficult match, here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:
GK) Petr Cech
Petr Cech will undoubtedly get back in the sticks for Arsenal. The 34-year-old has started just one of the previous three matches for The Gunners but kept a clean sheet last time out and will hope for the same against his former club.

RB) Hector Bellerin
The Spaniard will keep his place at right back. There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the youngster’s future this week and Arsenal fans will be hoping he puts that behind him and has a big match against Eden Hazard.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
Laurent Koscielny will stay at the back for The Gunners. He didn’t have the best of matches last weekend and will need to be on top form to stop this Chelsea attack
CB) Shkodran Mustafi
Shkodran Mustafi will undoubtedly be preferred over Gabriel Paulista. The Brazilian has history with Chelsea forward Diego Costa and Mustafi will have to keep his cool around the Chelsea man.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Nacho Monreal will probably keep his left back spot. Kieran Gibbs will be hoping to retake Monreal’s place in the team over the coming months after the Spaniard’s shaky start to the season.
