Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3) vs Arsenal, Werner and Pulisic start

Predicted Chelsea lineup vs Arsenal

Chelsea will make the trip to the Emirates Stadium for tonight's Premier League clash against Arsenal.

The Blues recently ended a two-match losing streak with a 3-0 win over West Ham United and that sees them within one point of the top four.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Edouard Mendy has been the Blues' undisputed goalkeeper when fit and available. He is expected to start against the Gunners.

Reece James is set to miss his second game in a row with a knee injury and that should see Cesar Azpilicueta start at right-back.

Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva are expected to continue in the central defence, but there will be an enforced change at left-back.

Ben Chilwell is a huge doubt after rolling his ankle in the derby against the Hammers. He is likely to be replaced with Emerson.

In the centre of the park, Frank Lampard should continue with the same combination from the Premier League win against David Moyes' side.

N'Golo Kante is likely to take up the defensive midfield position with Jorginho and Mason Mount featuring ahead of him.

Further forward, no changes are expected. Timo Werner has misfired in the past few games, but he has still created chances for his teammates.

He should start on the right wing with Christian Pulisic on the opposite flank. Tammy Abraham should lead the line after scoring a brace on Monday.

Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3): Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva, Emerson; N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mason Mount; Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic
