Chelsea entertain Arsenal in tonight’s Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are currently six points ahead of fifth-placed West Ham United with a superior goal difference.
A victory over the Gunners in the London derby should guarantee their spot in next season’s Champions League.
Edouard Mendy has been the regular choice in goal for most of the campaign. The Senegal international is expected to start between the sticks tonight.
Reece James should continue at right wing-back after a standout attacking display vs Manchester City. Marcos Alonso scored the winner against the Cityzens, but he could make way for Ben Chilwell in the opposite end.
Jorginho was rested last weekend with Billy Gilmour partnering N’Golo Kante. It could be vice-versa this time around with Kante dropping to the bench for the Italian to start.
He could be accompanied by Kai Havertz, who has been in good form since the last international break. Timo Werner has been misfiring upfront, but he has been a good creative presence. He has bagged one goal and three assists in his last five league appearances.
