Kovacic back in, Christensen continues

Chelsea welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge this evening in the 8.15pm Premier League match.

Both sides will be absolutely desperate to take all three points having both experiencing stuttering form in the league right now.

Arsenal have only won one match in their last five, so they are in quite the crisis right now.

Whilst Frank Lampard will be wanting to immediately bounce back from defeat at Newcastle at the weekend.

Lampard only really has the long term injury to Ruben Loftus-Cheek, other than that Reece James is back in contention after receiving a knock on Sunday, and Marcos Alonso is back in the squad.

Lampard starts with an update on Reece James, who has an injury to the back of his knee area. It’s not as bad as first feared and he is in contention for tomorrow’s game. Marcos Alonso is fit again and will be in the squad. #CHEARS

I believe we will see Mateo Kovacic come back in to the starting line up, and due to the threat of Arsenal on the attack, N’Golo Kante will keep his position meaning it will probably be Mason Mount missing out.

I don’t think James will be risked.

Predicted Chelsea Xl to face Arsenal (4-3-3) –

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Emerson. Jorginho, Kovacic, Kante. Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Abraham.
