Chelsea look for our first win in four games over Arsenal, which would see move back into third, two points ahead of Leicester City and just three points behind Manchester United (who will have a game-in-hand). More importantly, it would increase the gap to the chasing pack, who are down to just about two teams at this point, West Ham and more dangerously, Liverpool.
With the FA Cup final looming on Saturday, Tuchel has rotated the other half of the squad who didn’t get a rest on the weekend, and has included a couple youngsters on the bench, too, in addition to Billy G getting another start!
