Arsenal will be desperate to get back to winning ways and boost their top four hopes when they welcome Chelsea to the Emirates Stadium this evening.

Arsene Wenger has been handed a major boost with Mesut Ozil passed fit to start in attack after recovering from a minor knee problem but Laurent Koscielny misses out with an Achilles injury.

Rob Holding comes in to the defence alongside Calum Chambers and Shkodran Mustafi while Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts in the left wing-back role with Sead Kolasinac ruled out with an ankle injury.

Antonio Conte has recalled Andreas Christensen in place of Antonio Rudiger while Cesc Fabregas and Tiemoue Bakayoko join N’Golo Kante in midfield.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:
