Arsenal vs Chelsea will take place at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, 29th December.
The Gunners are not able to find their rhythm under their new manager Mikel Arteta. This match comes a little too soon as the manager is still settling in with his new squad, and this encounter will not be an easy one.
On the other hand, Chelsea’s run so far has not been a great one either. They have lost more than couple of their previous matches which has not just put them behind in the league, it could cost them the title.
Nicolas Pepe could start in the front, after he missed out on Thursday’s games.
Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka could come in midfield.
Calum Chambers could return after completing his ban, as Sokratis Papastathopoulos suffered a head injury against AFC Bournemouth on last match-day.
Mateo Kovacic has completed his single-match suspension and could be back in the starting line-up.
Reece James could make it for the game on Sunday if he is able to shake his ankle issues off.
Mason Mount could replace Hudson-Odoi in the midfield.

Match Predictions Arsenal vs Chelsea
In this game, Chelsea is expected to come out on top. Reason being that their last encounter with the Gunners was in the Europa League finals match that ended with 4-1 for Chelsea.
Moreover, their manager has had time to adjust with his new squad, and the team had momentum in earlier matches.
On the other hand, Arteta has just taken over the managerial role for Arsenal. It will take him time to adjust with the squad and come out with a solid play style that suits him and his squad both.
But considering past head-to-head stats and current situation both the teams are going through, the scale tips on Chelsea’s side to win on Sunday.
