Chelsea team news: Predicted line-up for Sunday’s London derby against Arsenal
RB: Reece James
After missing out against Southampton we expect James to recover his place. What a revelation James has been, the young full-back has been given his chance by Lampard and he has grabbed it with both hands.
Defensively will be where Lampard has his biggest decision to make ahead of the Arsenal clash. But we think he’ll stick with Tomori who has been a rock at the heart of the Chelsea defence for the majority of the season.
CB: Kurt Zouma
Been a regular under Lampard following many seasons away on loan from the London club. Zouma will hope to retain his place following a disappointing defensive display on Boxing Day.
LB: Cesar Azpilicueta
Known simply as ‘Dave’ amongst Chelsea fans, the club captain will be expected to find a place in the starting line-up whether that’s in a back three or four.
