Team News: Chelsea vs Arsenal

Today is going to go a long way in showing just how far we`ve come in our recovery after an horrendous 8 months in the club`s recent history.

What we need to remember however, is that getting something from the game isn`t the sole indicator of our progression, going to Stamford Bridge and getting a point or three is tough for even the best teams in the league, but if we can put in a good performance and compete in this match, even if we lose, will tell us a lot.

Tomas Vermaelen makes the bench after a long lay off, and long time Arsenal tormentor, Didier Drogba is suspended after his atrocious two footed tackle in the QPR match last week.

Here`s the complete line up.

Chelsea
• 01 Cech
• 02 Ivanovic
• 03 Cole
• 17 Bosingwa
• 26 Terry
• 07 Ramires
• 08 Lampard
• 12 Mikel
• 09 Torres
• 10 Mata
• 23 Sturridge

Substitutes
• 46 Blackman
• 04 David Luiz
• 34 Bertrand
• 06 Romeu
• 15 Malouda
• 16 Meireles
• 18 Lukaku

Arsenal
• 13 Szczesny
• 04 Mertesacker
• 06 Koscielny
• 11 Santos
• 20 Djourou
• 08 Arteta
• 14 Walcott
• 16 Ramsey
• 17 Song
• 10 Van Persie
• 27 Gervinho

Substitutes
• 21 Fabianski
• 05 Vermaelen
• 25 Jenkinson
• 07 Rosicky
• 23 Arshavin
• 26 Frimpong
• 09 Park Chu-Young

Bit of a shocking analogy there Slurms, seeing as Stamford Bridge has been almost silent in that first half - everytime there's an audible chant from the TV it's from the away end.

Breaking news: Arsenal are awful defensively lol. Liverpool get Enrique for 6mil, we get a winger masquerading as a LB for the same price. At this point, all you can do is laugh.
