The English Premier League will today move into Gameweek 15 of the 2020/21 season. Among the boxing day matches scheduled for today, the Arsenal vs Chelsea derby will be the most followed match. All eyes will be at the Emirates stadium.
Arsenal haven’t had a good run this season so far. The club is currently just outside the relegation zone after not getting a win in seven Premier League matches. Despite this poor form, many still expect Arsenal to perform better considering their performance against the “big six” sides since July this year.
Chelsea’s defeat against Everton and Wolves pegged them behind a little but had a stunning 3-0 victory against West Ham which took them to fifth in the PL table. The in-form Blues and the struggling Gunners are both desperate for a win in today’s match.
Arsenal: Team News
The club will miss some players against Chelsea. Thomas Partey is still recovering from a thigh injury and will therefore miss the derby. The fitness of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Gabriel Martinelli is still in questions. The duo may, therefore, not make the starting line-up against the Blues. However, Arsenal are delighted with the return of Granit Shaka.
Chelsea: Team News
Hakim Ziyech is still recovering from a hamstring injury. It is still not confirmed whether Ben Chilwell and Reece James will make the line-up. Their availability will require late checks by Chelsea Manager Lampard.
