Ben Chilwell sustained a hamstring injury in the win over Zagreb and is out here and probably misses the World Cup.
Chelsea didn’t make a lot of changes for the Zagreb win, however expect Thiago Silva to return to the XI.
Takehiro Tomiyasu was forced off in the Europa League meaning Oleksandr Zinchenko could well be rushed back into the side.
Bukayo Saka eased any injury fears with a cameo midweek and he will return to the XI here.
Expected starting XI’s
Chelsea (3-4-3): Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Koulibaly; Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Cucurella; Sterling, Aubameyang, Mount
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; White, Gabriel, Saliba, Zinchenko; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus
Tough one to predict at Stamford Bridge, but a draw looks the best bet
Correct Score: 1-1
Both teams to score in a draw looks good, 1-1 seems the safest prediction
