Arsenal have the direct chance to close the gap on a top-four place in the Premier League as they take the short trip to face Chelsea in the London Derby league meeting billed to take place at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night.

Chelsea occupy the last and fourth Champions League place on the Premier League table at the moment with the first three teams namely Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester City far in front.

The chasing pack has a better chance of catching up with a wobbly Chelsea team in recent weeks than the other three teams mentioned earlier.

Chelsea have a five-point cushion over the chasing pack spearheaded by Manchester United in fifth place with 15 games left to play.

Arsenal are ten points worse off than Chelsea at this stage of this season and another defeat against the Blues will put an end to their slim top-four hopes.

Chelsea came from a goal down to score two goals in the last ten minutes and win the game 2-1 away at Arsenal in their first league match this season.

Possible Arsenal XI: Bernd Leno; Ainsley Maitland-Niles, David Luiz, Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Bukayo Saka; Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira, Mesut Ozil; Alexandre Lacazette, Nicholas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli.
