Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has the luxury of recalling Calum Chambers to his first XI against Chelsea tomorrow.
Chambers, a £16 million addition in 2014 [The Guardian], sat out Arteta's coronation as Gunners' head coach on Boxing Day due to a suspension as the team drew 1-1 away to Bournemouth.
But he's available for the visit of Frank Lampard's side and the newly-appointed Arsenal man might bring him in at centre-back, but for who?
Sokratis Papastathopoulos and David Luiz started alongside one another against the Cherries, but Sokratis, who picked up a head injury on Thursday, is having a horrible season and Luiz should be given the nod to start ahead over the Greek, a £17 million addition in 2018 [The Daily Mail].
Further forward, Alexandre Lacazette is likely to keep his place as the spearhead of Arsenal's attack despite missing a series of clear-cut chances, while Mesut Ozil, praised by Arteta after the game, will return at number 10, flanked by Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and potentially Nicolas Pepe, who was overlooked for Reiss Nelson earlier this week.
Here's how HITC thinks Arsenal could line up at the Emirates tomorrow:
