How we expect Arsenal to line up against Chelsea today

Gabriel (knee) Nketiah (ankle) and Partey (ankle) are still not fit.

Mikel Arteta faces a dilemma as to whether he goes with a back-three against Chelsea or sticks to a back-four.

The Gunners struggled with a back-four against Brentford last week and they have previously had success playing a back-three against the Blues.

Arsenal predicted XI: (3-4-3) Leno; White, Holding, Tierney; Chambers, Xhaka, Lokonga, Saka; Pepe, Aubameyang, Smith Rowe.

Arsenal squad from: Leno, Ramsdale, Okonkwo; Bellerin, Cedric, Chambers, Holding, Kolasinac, Mari, Tavares, Tierney, White; Elneny, Lokonga, Maitland-Niles, Saka, Smith Rowe, Torreira, Willock, Xhaka; Aubameyang, Balogun, Martinelli, Nelson and Pepe.

Doubts: Aubameyang (Covid-19) and Willian (Covid-19)

Injured: Gabriel (knee), Lacazette (Covid-19), Nketiah (ankle), Partey (ankle) and Runarsson.
