- Team News and Possible Eleven
This weekend might witness Arsenal climbing to the Premier League’s zenith, at least temporarily, as they head to Stamford Bridge to challenge their city rivals, Chelsea.
Trailing Tottenham Hotspur solely due to fewer goals scored, Mikel Arteta’s squad is in fierce competition. The dynamics are intriguing, especially with Tottenham’s ex-coach, Mauricio Pochettino, now steering Chelsea.
In a surprising move, Chelsea’s Raheem Sterling was excluded from Gareth Southgate’s recent England line-up for the second consecutive month. This snub, however, seemed to ignite Sterling’s determination, playing a pivotal role in Chelsea’s dramatic 4-1 comeback win against the recent promotees, Burnley. This victory, complemented by previous wins over Brighton and Fulham, has bolstered Chelsea’s morale, despite their current 11th league position.
Chelsea, however, faces the challenge of recovering from back-to-back 1-0 home defeats to Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. Arsenal, conversely, has rejuvenated their spirits, breaking their losing pattern against Manchester City, a feat not achieved since the era of Cazorla and Giroud.
Arsenal’s mettle was further tested when they maintained their unbeaten status, drawing level with Tottenham on points and goal difference after a robust response to a Champions League defeat by Lens.
As the league dynamics play out, Arsenal could seize the top position with a victory at Stamford Bridge, a venue where they’ve consistently performed well recently, boasting three straight wins.

Injury concerns plague Chelsea. Players such as Armando Broja, Wesley Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, Ben Chilwell, Romeo Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah, and Carney Chukwuemeka are confirmed absentees for the Arsenal clash. There are, however, optimistic signs with Nicolas Jackson and Reece James possibly returning. Malo Gusto, fresh from a ban, is set to appear, while several others remain doubtful.
Potential Chelsea Starting XI: Sanchez; Gusto, Disasi, Silva, Colwill; Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher; Palmer, Jackson, Sterling.
Arsenal’s injury list is less daunting. Concerns linger over Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, and William Saliba, with the latter managing a persistent toe issue. Trossard’s recent half-time exit against Manchester City and minimal news on Saka’s fitness are points of contention. However, Gabriel Martinelli is expected to be match-fit.
Potential Arsenal Starting XI: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Rice, Partey; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
With both teams having their challenges, the stage is set for a thrilling Premier League contest.
