Chelsea entertain Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunchtime looking to extend their lead at the top of the table. Here’s the line-up we predict Jose Mourinho will put out.
The Blues cruised through to the quarter finals of the Champions League on Tuesday night with a 2-0 win over Galatasaray but Mourinho will be forced into making some changes to his side this weekend.
Ramires is suspended after being dismissed late on during last weeks 1-0 defeat to Aston Villa so the fit-again David Luiz could come into the midfield alongside Nemanja Matic – who’s certain to return after being ineligible in Europe – offering a solid base to protect the back four.
Willian is also banned after receiving his marching orders for two bookings at Villa Park so Andre Schurrle could return to the attack alongside regulars Eden Hazard and Oscar. Samuel Eto’o was on the score-sheet against Galatasaray on Tuesday but Mourinho may opt to bring in some fresh legs with Fernando Torres starting up front.
The back five is expected to remain unchanged with Ashley Cole still a fitness doubt after missing the last three weeks with a knee injury.
Here’s the team we think will start:
