Arsenal are coming into a bit of form with three consecutive Premier League wins and Arsene Wenger’s men will be hoping to build momentum further by beating London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
The North London club have a host of their stars returning from injury and players on form, which will give their French coach a few key personnel decisions to make ahead of the game.

The first major choice Wenger has is whether to continue with Alexis Sanchez as the furthest man forward or to give Lucas Perez, who scored twice in midweek, the chance to lead the line.
Arsenal fans have been vocal in their opinion that the Chilean star is better on the left wing rather than as a striker and as such there will be growing calls for the Spaniard to retain his place after impressing against Nottingham Forest.
Presuming this choice is made, just who will get the nod to play on the right of midfield becomes a key question.
Alex Iwobi has been featuring on the left and excelling with Sanchez up front while Theo Walcott has also played well on the right.
With Aaron Ramsey not fit to return, it may well be a straight shoot-out between the Nigeria international’s creativity and delicate touches against the Englishman’s searing pace.
