Team news: Kiwior one of three changes

Jakub Kiwior

Jakob Kiwior has been handed his first Premier League start as Mikel Arteta shuffles his pack for our game against Chelsea.

The boss has made three changes from the side that lost 4-1 to Manchester City last week, with the Polish defender preferred to Rob Holding in our backline.

Meanwhile our other two January recruits have also been selected from the start. Jorginho is given a chance to impress against the side he departed in January as he replaces Thomas Partey, while Leandro Trossard returns to the starting XI with Gabriel Martinelli dropping to the bench.

Frank Lampard meanwhile has made two changes to his side that lost 2-0 at home to Brentford six days ago, with former Gunner Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang handed just his fifth league start for the Blues, and his first since the reverse fixture in November.

Winger Noni Madueke also comes into the team, with Conor Gallagher and Trevor Chalobah becoming substitutes.

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Kiwior, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Jorginho, Xhaka, Odegaard, Trossard, Saka, Jesus.
Subs: Turner, Tierney, Holding, Partey, Vieira, Smith Rowe, Nelson, Martinelli, Nketiah.

Chelsea: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Fofana, Silva, Chilwell, Fernandez, Kovacic, Kante, Madueke, Sterling, Aubameyang.
Subs: Mendy, Badiashile, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Gallagher, Mudryk, Felix, Ziyech, Havertz.
