Chelsea vs Arsenal: Team News
Winger Willian and influential centre-half David Luiz both picked up significant knocks against Liverpool at Anfield on Tuesday and will most probably sit out of the home fixture as of now. With Branislov Ivanovic leaving the club earlierfor Zenit St Peterburg, it seems that Luiz’s absence due to a knee injury might actually end up hampering Conte’s defense strategies. Nevertheless, the former Juventus coach will still have a large roster of players at his disposal with Charly Musonda and Kenedy have joined up with Chelsea’s first-team and are available to play after the club decided not to loan them out again. However, Musonda was heard to be struggling with knee concerns of his own as well. Young defenderNathann Ake has also reportedly joined the first team again and there is quite a chance that the Italian manager might play the youngster on Saturday. Diego Costa, who has been in fine form irrespective of his on-field theatrics will once again feature in the front of Conte’s line-up with Pedro and Hazard for support.
Arsene Wenger will have quite a few concerns regarding this starting line-up with a number of his key players out with significant injuries. Previously, Aaron Ramsey was ruled out for a start when the injury-prone Welshmanpicked up a calf strain in the 2-1 defeat to Watford. Also, Santi Cazorla (Achilles injury) is also among the list of players who will not feature in Wenger’s starting line-up in the crunch clash against Chelsea. Further woes for Wenger involve Granit Xhaka’ssuspension due to red cards until February 12 as well as the absence ofMohamed Elneny due to the African Cp of Nations. The Arsenal boss will depend heavily on the likes of Ozil and Sanches if they have to atleast salvage a point from the away draw.
