Both the teams are heading into this match on the back of some strong league performances. The Gunners are sitting at top of the Premier League table while Chelsea are just one place and two points behind of their London rivals.
Both the sides have made few changes from this game. Arsenal are missing several key players due to injuries but it is the game against Liverpool this weekend that has prompted Arsene Wenger to rest some of the star players.
Jose Mourinho not only has an avalanche of quality options at disposal but has almost a fully fit squad as well. Here is the starting line-ups for both the teams:
Arsenal: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Monreal, Ramsey, Wilshere, Rosicky, Cazorla, Ryo, Bendtner
Subs: Viviano, Sagna, Hayden, Yennaris, Ozil, Giroud, Park
Chelsea: Schwarzer; Azpilicueta, Cahill, D Luiz, Bertrand; Essien (c), Mikel; De Bruyne, Mata, Willian; Eto’o.
Subs: Blackman, Ivanovic, Kalas, Ramires, Hazard, Torres, Ba
