Projected Chelsea Lineup To Face Arsenal – CAC (Cesc And Costa) Will Be The Key For The Blues

There are a lot of unfinished business from Chelsea and Arsenal. The Arsenal fans still must be grievously hurt from last season’s of mauling of 6-0 and they would do anything to see their team take the revenge on the London club. Chelsea on the other hand would hand, would like to keep their momentum going and register another win on Arsenal to keep themselves at the top of the table.

Mourinho hints Chelsea exit?

There will be another contest within the contest going on between the two managers. Jose Mourinho has never missed an opportunity to take a jibe at Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and last season termed him as a Specialist in Failure. Although Wenger never took that path to get back at the former Real Madrid manager, he would definitely like to make scores even on the football ground.

And lastly this will be the first team that Cesc Fabregas will be facing Arsenal since his return to England and the former Arsenal man will be in a very emotional place. He has never hidden the fact that he wanted a move to Arsenal when he decided to leave Barcelona, but Arsene Wenger was not keen on getting his services and ultimately he had to join Chelsea. We take a look at the predicted Chelsea lineup for this high voltage game.

Goal Keeper And Defence

Courtois will be at the goal for Chelsea ahead of Cech and although the Belgian keeper has not been able to keep as many clean sheets as he would have liked, the fact remains that he is one of the best keepers at the moment in the world.
Cesar Azpilicueta will again be preferred ahead for Filipe Luis in the left back position as Branislav Ivanovic will be at the right back. John Terry and Gary Cahill will be the two centre backs for the team like usual and all these four will be entrusted with the job of keeping the Arsenal defenders quiet.


A huge moment for Cesc Fabregas as he plays against Arsenal. But as a professional he will be expected to do his job and keep up the good form. Matic has developed himself into one of the most prolific defensive midfielders of the Premier League and he will face a stern test against Arsenal which has the likes of Sanchez, Ozil. Cazorla and a rejuvenated Welbeck. The other man in the midfield is supposed to be Oscar and although he has not justice to his talents this season, Mourinho will expect him to perform better.


Diego Costa will be leading the line once again amid some concerns about his fitness. He has been a tremendous performer for Chelsea till now and a lot will depend on how he will perform against the Gunners. Eden Hazard will take up his place as he does in the attacking half and he will be looking to heap misery on Arsenal. For the final name on the team sheet, there will be a fight between Schurrle and Willian but we feel that the German world cup winner may just start ahead of the Brazilian.
