How Arsenal could line up against Chelsea with Saka set for instant return and Tierney pushing to start

ARSENAL are set to go with an extremely strong starting XI when they travel to Chelsea on Sunday.

The Gunners are going into the match as favourites after storming to the top of the Premier League.

How Arsenal could line up against Chelsea

But there is also pride at stake as they look to cement themselves as London’s top team.

And Mikel Arteta looks set to be forced into just one change as he prepares for the huge occasion.

Takehiro Tomiyasu is expected to miss out against Chelsea after picking up an injury in Zurich yesterday.

That should see Kieran Tierney drafted in at left-back.

He is set to be joined by Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba in defence.

And Aaron Ramsdale is certain to start between the sticks.

Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey will stick together as the midfield duo.

While Bukayo Saka has shaken off a knock to line up with Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus in attack.


Another way Arsenal could look at Stamford Bridge

Arteta could spring a couple of surprises though if he opts for an alternative team.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has been training after missing the last eight games with injury and could be pushing for a start.

Elsewhere, Fabio Vieira may get the nod after regular No10 Odegaard admitted he became “frustrated” in a secret meeting regarding Arsenal’s slight dip in form.

Reiss Nelson is another candidate to come in should Saka be deemed not fit enough before kick-off.

And Eddie Nketiah could yet spring a surprise as the striker, with Jesus firing blanks in his last eight outings.
