Arsenal XI vs Chelsea: Starting lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Premier League game today
Arsenal have rung the changes for tonight’s Premier League London derby against Chelsea.
Jorginho starts against his former club in midfield as Thomas Partey makes way, while Leandro Trossard and Jakub Kiwior also replace Gabriel Martinelli and Rob Holding.
There is still no William Saliba, who has been absent with a back injury since the middle of March and is yet to return to training. The Frenchman faces a race to be fit for the final four games of the season.

Asked on Monday about Saliba’s condition, Gunners boss Mikel Arteta said: “Pretty similar. He is not going to be involved tomorrow.
“We will have to wait until the next game to see where we are, but he hasn’t improved this week at all.”
After four games without a win, Arteta has been bold with three changes for the clash with Chelsea. Mohamed Elneny and Takehiro Tomiyasu are long-term absentees.
