Ozil out of London derby

Arsenal have been dealt a significant blow for this afternoon's London derby at Chelsea with Mesut Ozil ruled out with a knee injury.

Alexis Sanchez starts from the bench for the Gunners with Arsene Wenger going with Alex Iwobi instead in the starting lineup. There was talk of a potential change to the 4-4-2 formation but the manager has gone with the three-at-the-back with Mustafi, Koscielny and Monreal slotting into the positions.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have gone with their regulars in the lineup with skipper Gary Cahill making his comeback after serving a three-match suspension. Cesc Fabregas also starts his fourth game on the trot with Tiemoue Bakayoko benched while Willian gets the nod to play alongside Pedro and Alvaro Morata up front.

Here are the lineups for the clash......

Chelsea: Thibaut Courtois, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso, Victor Moses, Cesc Fabregas, N'Golo Kante, Willian, Pedro, Alvaro Morata

Arsenal: Petr Cech, Nacho Monreal, Laurent Koscielny, Shkodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin, Kolasinac, Aaron Ramsey, Granit Xhaka, Danny Welbeck, Alex Iwobi, Alexandre Lacazette
