Confirmed Brazil and Chile line-ups: Alexis Sanchez and Coutinho start

Here is how Brazil and Chile will line up this afternoon, including players from Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool among others.

Brazil starting XI: Jefferson, Danilo, Thiago, Mirando, Marcelo, Souza, Fernandinho, Douglas Costa, Coutinho, Luiz Adriano, Neymar

Chile starting XI: Bravo, Medel, Jara, Albornoz, Isla, Millar, Aranguiz, Mena, Vidal, Sanchez, Hernandez

International friendlies do not come much bigger than this, with South American giants Brazil and Chile going head-to-head at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

While many football fans bemoan the international break – and for good reason – this match will at least showcase some of the best footballing talent in the world.

Among the players on show are Arsenal pair Alexis Sanchez and Gabriel Paulista, Manchester City's Fernandinho and Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

As for Chelsea's Brazilian contingent; they have to make do with a place on the bench.

Brazil won their last match 3-1 against France and will be hoping to make it two victories in three days, but Chile will be smarting from their surprise defeat to Iran and will not want to lose both matches.

This match could have plenty to excite fans and neutrals alike and with some of Brazil’s players pushing for more regular starts they could seize the chance to impress, not least Liverpool's young play-maker.

That said, Sanchez knows this ground well having shone for Arsenal this season and he will want to add at least one more goal to his impressive tally.
