Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday (Watch live, 9 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com) in a massive London derby as both teams continue to scrap for a top four finish.
This will be Mikel Arteta’s first home game in charge of the Gunners and comes after his first game as Arsenal’s new head coach was a draw at Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
Chelssa suffered a disappointing home defeat to Southampton last time out and Frank Lampard’s side have lost five of their last seven as they are hanging on to their spot in the top four by a thread.
In team news Arsenal bring Calum Chambers and Matteo Guendouzi to the lineup, while Chelsea are without the injured Christian Pulisic so Lampard again starts with a 3-4-3 formation as Mason Mount returns to the starting lineup.
🚨 Two changes from Boxing Day
➡️ Chambers, Guendouzi
⬅️ Sokratis, Xhaka#ARSCHE
