Lampard has serious doubts over the availability of some of his key players heading into the Boxing Day trip to Arsenal. Ben Chilwell could miss the game after twisting his ankle against West Ham while Reece James is yet to recover from his knee injury. Hakim Ziyech has missed the last four games with a thigh injury and remains doubtful to play a part on Saturday.

What are your score predictions for this game?
We have Ziyech and Ben Chilwell on doubt.
We however, expect some rotations.
Timo Werner has done a good job of playing off the left-wing and he’s expected to maintain on his spot on the flank.
Christian Pulisic is also expected to keep his spot on the flank.
Below is our 4-3-3 predicted line-up.
Arsenal are a sound offensive side but would crumble to well organized attacking teams that can soak their attacks. Chelsea defend well as a team and are lethal going forward.
We predict an emphatic 1-3 win in favor of Chelsea.
What say you Blues?
