Ospina
Bellerin Gabriel Koscielny Monreal
Coquelin - Ramsey
Welbeck - Özil - Sanchez
Giroud

Welbeck is definitely needed just for his work-rate in this fixture.
I would have loved having Ox for this game. He provides an x-factor to us with his pace and dribbling. A win against the champions and there will be no doubts about our PL challenge next year. Even all the pundits will put us right up there. And it is also high time that Wenger finally beats Mourinho, would really piss him off.
I am really excited for this one, as this game will tell lot about our mentality, and will also affect our confidence for this seasons' end and the start of the new one.

I really want to fit Cazorla into my team but can't, we need players in there proper position for this one.
Also I would have preferred The Ox to Welbeck but what can you do!

Might be time to unleash Diaby so he can have a Liverpool-esque performance and earn a contract extension.

If Wenger plays Cazorla at CM and Ramsey at RW, then we're going to get smashed. Do the right thing Wenger.

Da fuq?

What are we doing playing for a draw at home?

We have nothing to lose, but can put a stranglehold on 2nd with a win.

Because going for a win against Mou's Chelsea is the easiest way to lose.

To win, it's better to go for a draw, and hope to nick something on the counter

Or we could do both. i.e. play to win while being cautious at the back.

The key to victory imo will come down to our fullbacks. When one fullback attacks down his flank the other fullback should be aware and stay back to help the CBs. We are also going to need them to provide a lot of support to our offensive players by taking on the responsibility of putting crosses into the box. Although we probably won't be winning many crosses with the likes of Ivanovic, Terry, Cahil, Matic, Courtois, and probably Zouma all camped inside their area, players like Alexis, Ramsey, Cazorla and Ozil will benefit because instead of playing out wide, they will and should be waiting just outside their penalty box waiting to attack any clearances or rebounds that come their way. not to mention this will also help prevent Chelsea from countering

Doubt we'd attack them as ferociously as we have the other times. This is as much as test for Chelsea as it is for us. They're facing an in-form Arsenal. We're facing a team that gets results. Will be intriguing, even though it's most likely going to be a snore-fest.

I would get a little creative:

debuchy merts kos nacho
hector ramsey coq alexis
ozil
giroud

2 banks of four and play hector at rw so you can basically choke off hazard by sandwiching him with two fullbacks.
