CONFIRMED: Chelsea v Arsenal line-ups

Cesc Fabregas Barcelona

Here is how Chelsea and Arsenal will line up at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League.

Chelsea and Arsenal will face each other at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this afternoon.

It is the London derby and promises to be hugely entertaining, with goals pretty much guaranteed.

Hosts Chelsea will head into the game as league leaders with 16 points from six matches, while Arsenal are fifth in the table with 10 points.

Jose Mourinho’s side will be favourites to pick up all three points today. In Diego Costa, the Blues have the best striker in the Premier League so far this season, while Cesc Fabregas has been in world-class form as well.

It will also be a special match for Fabregas, who was on the books of Arsenal between 2003 and 2011. He left the Gunners to return to Barcelona in the summer of 2011, but after three years in La Liga has come back to the Premier League.
