Arsenal v Chelsea – Probable lineups – Wenger facing injury crisis ahead of London derby
Arsenal take on their bitter London rivals Chelsea in the Premier League tonight as they look to return to winning ways.
The clash takes places at the Emirates Stadium while kick-off is scheduled for 19:45 (GMT).
Arsene Wenger’s side will be desperate to return to winning ways after they were held to a 0-0 draw by West Brom over the weekend.
The Gunners find themselves seven points behind Chelsea and know a defeat could seriously dent their chances of a top-four finish.
Chelsea meanwhile come into tonight’s clash in high spirits following an emphatic 5-0 win over relegation battlers Stoke City. Antonio Conte has no major injury worries nor suspensions to contend with ahead of the London derby.
Wenger meanwhile is facing an injury crisis ahead of tonight’s clash. The Gunners could be without their star playmaker Mesut Ozil who missed last weekend’s clash due to a knee injury. Defender Laurent Koscielny is also an injury doubt for tonight’s clash.
