Arsenal take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today and Mikel Arteta will largely stick with a winning formula. The Gunners will confirm top spot in the Premier League at the end of the weekend with a victory in west London. With six changes expected from the Europa League win over FC Zurich, Express Sport looks at how Arteta will line up.
Goalkeeper – Ramsdale
Only two goalkeepers have kept more clean sheets in the Premier League this season than Aaron Ramsdale. He has conceded just one goal in his last five appearances in all competitions.
Matt Turner remained absent in midweek due to a groin injury. Karl Hein will therefore likely be named as the substitute goalkeeper today.

Attack – Saka, Jesus, Martinelli
The same attacking trio have started every Premier League match so far this season. Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli were handed a breather from the start against Zurich and will come back into the side for this one.
Gabriel Jesus played an hour on Thursday and again failed to get on the scoresheet. But he is providing a lot more to Arteta’s side that ensures he remains in the XI.
Jesus, Saka and Martinelli are joint-top scorers for Arsenal this season. They all have five strikes to their name so far.
Arsenal expected XI vs Chelsea in full: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Odegaard, Xhaka; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.
