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.

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.
