4-3-3 Formation: Chelsea Strongest Lineup To Face Arsenal

Chelsea vs Arsenal
Chelsea’s injury list has been reduced to just five players as Kai Havertz is set to make his return for the team. After a brief absence due to a minor knee injury, the 23-year-old forward will be competing with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a starting position in the game against Arsenal on Tuesday evening, under the management of Frank Lampard.

Reece James, Mason Mount, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella, and Armando Broja will not be available for the upcoming London derby at the Emirates Stadium.

Unfortunately, Reece James is expected to miss the remainder of the season due to a hamstring injury he sustained during the match against Real Madrid two weeks ago.

Mason Mount may also be absent for the final six matches as he has opted to undergo surgery for a persistent abdominal issue.

Todd Boehly’s decision to reappoint Frank Lampard as Chelsea’s manager is increasingly under scrutiny with each passing week. The team’s losing streak has now extended to a worrying five games after their 2-0 defeat to West London rivals Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

Crystal Palace overtook their London rivals in the standings after a thrilling 4-3 victory over West Ham on Saturday. As a result, Chelsea now sits only 10 points ahead of the relegation zone and is surprisingly still at risk of being relegated to the Championship, despite being a top-flight team. The team has also mathematically ruled out the possibility of qualifying for the top four, which was no longer feasible some time ago.

Although the Chelsea squad is reportedly eager for the arrival of Mauricio Pochettino as their new manager, current manager Lampard is determined to avoid a dubious record at the Emirates Stadium. If Chelsea loses, it will be the first time in their Premier League history that they have suffered 20 defeats in a single season. The last time Chelsea experienced such a poor season was back in 1987-88.

Chelsea’s recent performance has been underwhelming, as they have gone eight matches without a win since Graham Potter’s Brighton secured a 3-1 victory over Leicester City in March. Since Lampard’s appointment, the team has only scored one goal – Conor Gallagher’s deflected strike against Brighton – and has won only one of their last 10 Premier League away games.
