Arsenal: Arteta, Wilshere, Mertesacker
Chelsea: Luiz, Drogba
Referee: Mike Dean
Sky Bet odds: Arsenal 1/1, Draw 5/2, Chelsea 13/5
Opta stat: The Blues have won just three of their previous 19 Premier League trips to the home of Arsenal, but those three victories have all come in their last six visits
Arsenal will have midfielders Abou Diaby and Francis Coquelin back from hamstring injuries for the clash.
Defender Laurent Koscielny returns from a two-game suspension, but on-loan midfielder Yossi Benayoun is ineligible against his parent club.
Mikel Arteta will not recover from the ankle injury sustained against Wigan in time to feature again this season, while England midfielder Jack Wilshere (ankle) has already been ruled out along with German centre-back Per Mertesacker (ankle).
Didier Drogba will miss the derby after picking up a knee injury during his goalscoring turn against Barcelona.
That means Fernando Torres, who has found the back of the net once in his last 11 Premier League starts, could be in line for an Emirates outing.
David Luiz is out with a hamstring injury, while Branislav Ivanovic serves the second instalment of his domestic three-game ban.
Possible starting XIs:
Arsenal: Szczesny, Gibbs, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Sagna, Song, Ramsey, Rosicky, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Van Persie.
Chelsea: Cech, Cole, Cahill, Terry, Bosingwa, Ramires, Essien, Lampard, Kalou, Sturridge, Torres.
Prediction: 2-1 Arsenal
