Following Wednesday night’s disappointment in Zagreb, a number of players are set to return to the starting eleven at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Defender Per Mertesacker hasn’t played in over a month following an illness and a car incident but has been in full training and Arsène Wenger admits he could return to the team at the weekend.
At Colney. Wenger: “Mertesacker could still be a bit short (to play against #cfc). I have to decide that.”

Other than that there are no fresh injuries, with Tomas Rosicky, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere out long-term.

Expect Petr Čech, Héctor Bellerín, Nacho Monreal and Aaron Ramsey to return to the side at the very least.
