LONDON: One of the biggest game of Barclays Premier League, Chelsea is going to fight against Arsenal here on March 22.
Arsenal’s midfield injury troubles continue with Aaron Ramsey (thigh), Mesut Ozil (hamstring) and Jack Wilshere (foot) all ruled out, but Kim Kallstrom could be in line for his first inclusion in the matchday squad since joining the club on loan in January.
David Luiz was fit enough to make the bench for Tuesday’s Champions League clash and may take his place in the starting XI on Saturday, while Ashley Cole (knee) remains a doubt after missing the second leg against Galatasaray. Brazilian duo Willian and Ramires are both suspended following their dismissals against Villa.
Before this, Chelsea defeated Arsenal by 2-1 goals at Stamford Bridge on January 20, 2013.
Chelsea (from): Blackman, Cech, Hilario, Schwarzer, Ake, Azpilicueta, Cahill, Cole, Ivanovic, Kalas, Luiz, Terry, Hazard, Lampard, Matic, Mikel, Oscar, Salah, Ba, Eto’o, Schurrle, Torres.
