Tonight at the Emirates stadium Chelsea will face an Arsenal team who are desperate to end their 12 long year’s wait for the Premier League title.

While the previous season’s champions have endured a shamefull campaign this term resulting in Jose Mourinho’s sacking, the Gunners are now level at the top of the league standings. In arguably the most unpredictable of seasons, Leicester City, a team who was at the bottom of the table back in April, now shares the lead with Arsenal, whereas Manchester City is a point adrift in third position after drawing with West Ham on Saturday.

The onus is certainly on Arsene Wenger’s boys to win the Premier League this season, with the rivals struggling for form and consistency and with Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola available when the season ends, Wenger will be hoping his men are ready to capitalize on their chance or face the insurmountable criticism and calls for his exit which will likely ensue.

Here is the starting line-up for both Arsenal and Chelsea.

Arsenal Starting Line-up: Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker (c), Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Campbell, Ozil, Walcott, Giroud            

Arsenal Substitutes: Ospina, Gabriel, Gibbs, Chambers, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanchez

Chelsea Starting Line-up: Courtois; Ivanovic, Zouma, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Mikel, Matic; Willian, Fabregas, Oscar; Diego Costa

Chelsea Substitutes: Begovic, Cahill, Baba Rahman, Loftus-Cheek, Traore, Hazard, Remy
