3-4-2-1: Ozil dropped, Elneny and Iwobi start in strongest probable Arsenal line-up against Chelsea


Arsenal were shockingly knocked out of the FA Cup by League Two side Nottingham Forest but they will be looking to bounce back when they take on Chelsea in the Carabao semi final later tonight.

Arsene Wenger is yet to win the competition despite being the longest serving Premier League manager and he has only two chances at a trophy this season – the Carabao Cup and the European League Cup.

The Gunners put up a fight to draw Chelsea in a thrilling encounter last Wednesday and you’d expect Arsene Wenger to correct the same mistake that ruin the game. While there are several players injured, Arsenal will feature their best players tonight.

Arsenal injury news

French centre-back Laurent Koscielny is currently battling with an Achilles injury and will not be featuring in the game. Nacho Monreal continues to be sidelined and an ankle injury to Sead kolasinac will also keep him out of the crunch tie. We are likely to see a back three of Calum Chambers, Skhodran Mustafi and Rob Holding.

Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey are currently recovering from hamstring injuries and the Gunners have not choice than to player without them. Reports have also indicated that Mesut Ozil will not feature due to injury.
