Full Chelsea squad to face Arsenal confirmed as Thomas Tuchel dealt double injury blow

Chelsea take on Arsenal in the Premier League this evening as they look to take another big step towards a top-four finish.

The Blues have established a commanding position over West Ham United and Liverpool heading into the final run-in, but the job is not done just yet.

A win over Arsenal would see Chelsea take a big leap towards the finish line, but Thomas Tuchel and his men will have half an eye on this weekend’s FA Cup final with Leicester City.

The Blues also have to play top-four rivals Leicester in the league after the final this weekend, putting added pressure on getting three points from this one.

But there are a couple of injury issues to worry about with both Mateo Kovacic and Andreas Christensen ruled out with respective injuries.

Providing an update, Tuchel said on Tuesday: “Kova isn’t ready for tomorrow. The personal race is on to try to make it to Wembley.

“Andreas’ was better than we feared. We hope he’ll be back for one of the two Leicester games. It will be a tough one but the season isn’t finished for him hopefully. We have a realistic hope that the season is not over for him.”

With that in mind, we have rounded up the full Chelsea squad available to face Arsenal this evening.

Goalkeepers – Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Willy Caballero.

Defenders – Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Kurt Zouma, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Emerson Palmieri, Ben Chilwell, Thiago SIlva.

Midfielders – Hakim Ziyech, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Billy Gilmour, Kai Havertz, Faustino Anjorin, Lewis Bate.

Forwards – Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud, Callum Hudson-Odoi.
