Team and Selection News

Chelsea have a short injured list with just David Luiz and van Ginkel injured.
Arsenal’s injury list has got longer in the last week with Özil joining Wilshere, Ramsey and Walcott in sick bay. That takes out play makers and the scorers of 13 goals this season. No wonder Arsenal’s form has tapered off. They will also be without Bendtne and Diaby .
