Arsenal v Chelsea: Confirmed Starting Line Ups – Mesut Ozil starts in London Derby

Arsenal Fenerbahce

Arsenal welcome Chelsea to the Emirates in the London derby hoping to end the week as Premier League leaders.

Arsene Wenger has decided to give Mesut Özil the nod after he returned from a foot injury that kept him out of last weekends game against Stoke City.

The World Cup winner who will make his 100th appearance has already provided 16 assists in the Premier League this season and is just four assists away from matching Thierry Henry’s record tally of 20.

The Gunners could go four points clear of Manchester City who drew 2-2 against West Ham should they beat the Blues today.
