Chelsea squad vs Arsenal revealed ahead of crucial Premier League London derby

Reigning Premier League Champions Chelsea have returned to form in recent weeks with four wins from their last five games. The Blues have the opportunity to overtake Manchester United and move up into second place tonight.

Antonio Conte’s side takes a trip to north London to take on their rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Kick-off is scheduled for 19:45 (GMT).
