Chelsea v Arsenal - Confirmed lineups - Wenger sufferers massive injury blow

Chelsea host Arsenal in the first part of Super Sunday today knowing a victory will heap more pressure on Arsene Wenger's shoulders.

"You learn from defeats and during the season every team will have a bad patch and bad games".

Chelsea on the other hand thrive at home against big teams, but played a strong side midweek in the Champions League, so not all players may be 100 percent and ready to go.

After a rough start to the season in a 3-2 loss to Burnley in their opening Premier League fixture, Chelsea have found form and look nearly unstoppable.

The Germany worldwide was rested for the Europa League win over Cologne on Thursday, but has not been passed fit to play at Stamford Bridge after reports suggested he was struggling with a muscle injury.

Arsenal have won just two of their last 21 away games against a member of last season's top six - a run which stretches back to the beginning of the 2013-14 season. Francis Coquelin is out with a hamstring problem and Santi Cazorla is ruled out with an ankle injury. Furthermore, the Gunners have not kept a clean sheet at Stamford Bridge in their last 12 visits.

Chelsea make three changes from the team that beat FK Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League, with David Luiz, Victor Moses and Alvaro Morata in for Andreas Christensen, Davide Zappacosta and Michy Batshuayi.

Conte has utilised a 3-4-3 formation in the majority of his games as Chelsea boss, with his decision to sacrifice a defender from an orthodox four-man back line paying dividends as the Stamford Bridge side continue to rack up the goals due to their additional attacking options.

The Gunners are yet to win away from home in the league this season, having lost 1-0 at Stoke too.
