Chelsea head into the huge London derby on Saturday’s late kick-off with another settled looking line-up and the false nine once again being utilised.
CFCnet’s Chelsea predicted line up vs Arsenal continues with a midfield three of Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante. England international Ruben Loftus-Cheek remains out injured for the Blues and will definitely miss the clash in north London.
Alvaro Morata was a doubt with injury but Maurizio Sarri revealed in his press conference that the striker is indeed fit. However, a potential move to Atletico Madrid means the Spaniard is all but certain to not be included in the squad heading to the north of the capital.
“I don’t know if he will play, but he is training with us, of course. It’s normal, I think. It’s not… of course, for him, I think it’s a very difficult moment.”
“But it’s normal for a player in January to be involved in the market. So I think that he’s available. Then, like in the last match, I can choose something different.”
Callum Hudson-Odoi is set to make the bench once again, with Willian and Pedro set to continue either side of Eden Hazard – both scored in the winner against Newcastle last week.
