Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Arsenal FC

Fabregas Wenger like a father to

The Italian is revered by the denizens of the Bridge, and the hero worship has never wavered in spite of the Wembley disappointments.

The question remains: will he be asked to start against Arsenal in a fixture Chelsea have dominated in recent years?

Conte is sure to rotate his Blues side in the coming weeks given the hectic schedule he must contest with, and Scott will be hoping to give the Italian a selection headache.

Kante, Bakayoko and Fabregas will have their work cut out over the next two weeks.

If not, it could be another long afternoon for Arsene Wenger's side at Chelsea. I think it's not an advantage [that they played on Thursday ahead of the game].

Predominantly a central midfielder, Scott is somewhat likely to go out on loan in January.

"I'd like to say that all our thoughts are for the people affected in the incident on the tube [London Underground]", Conte said at the start of the press conference on Friday. In my office when I arrive I close the air conditioner. It's the same when you play against Manchester City, against Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham.

"I remember when I was the Italy coach, there was a terrorist attack and we had to play against Belgium".

"I watched the [Cologne] game and Wenger rested a lot of players [to play] against us". They have a really good squad to fight for something important - the title in England.

'And in two, three weeks, four weeks, I don't know'.

The 19-year-old joined Chelsea at a young age from Southampton's academy, and has gone from strength to strength since progressing through the youth ranks with the Blues. "And obviously he's going to be vital", Mertesacker said. If you see their squad you can understand there are a lot of top players. It's an interesting poser for Conte, and his decision could provide pointers to his plans for the balance of the Premier League campaign. It's normal. They lost only one player now, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain. I don't understand why they can't fight for the title.

Whatever it may be, Chelsea FC head into this upcoming game just as determined as ever before.
