3-4-2-1: Pedro dropped, Bakayoko starts in Chelsea probable line-up vs Arsenal

Chelsea have a showdown with familiar rival Arsenal in tonight’s Premier League fixture and the current form of Antonio Conte’s men mean they have a chance to come-off the game with maximum points.

Chelsea are yet to taste defeat in their last 13 games but an away trip to the Emirates means they will be sternly tested tonight. Since Antonio Conte was appointed to manage Chelsea, he has not had it easy playing against Arsene Wenger.

Antonio Conte has already ruled out the Blues out of the title race due to the incredible form of Manchester City but they are fighting to end the season the best way they can.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently languishing in sixth position on the table and they have a chunk of their key players ruled out for this game.


David Luis is still nursing a knee injury. He was scheduled to return for this game but he has been ruled out of this one.

Luiz has been out of action since  October 28 and his place has been taken by Christensen. He could return against Norwich.

Christensen was on the bench against Stoke City after recovering from an illness bug. He will likely partner Gary Cahill and Azpilicueta at the heart of defence.
