Chelsea face Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!
There are just two changes from Frank Lampard as he looks to bounce back from a shocking defeat to Newcastle at the weekend. As we expected, Mason Mount, whose form hasn’t been great recently, is out, with Mateo Kovacic coming in to replace him.
The knock Reece James took against the Magpies is obviously affecting him too, as he’s not in the squad at all. Emerson plays on the left, with Cesar Azpilicueta sliding over to the right hand side of the back 4.
It’s a good team, and with the home crowd behind them they should be able to get stuck into this Arsenal team. Mount, Ross Barkley, Pedro and Michy Batshuayi provide the attacking options on the bench.
Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Arsenal (kick off at 20:15 pm GMT)
