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.

Awful defence on both ends to be fair. Went to shower at half time and I'm surprised to see the scoreline right now! :D
