Chelsea face Arsenal in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from the Emirates Stadium.

Frank Lampard is searching for his first win since returning to Chelsea on a caretaker basis, losing all five of his games, and comes up against an Arsenal side who are still fighting for the Premier League title.

Arsenal are four matches without a win and a 4-1 defeat to Manchester City last time out has seen their title aspirations take a huge hit heading into the final weeks of the campaign.

“It could be either way,” Lampard said in response to whether or not it comes at a good time to play Arsenal. “Very much in the hunt still to win the Premier League. Fantastic team, who have had a great season. If they’re wounded they could have a big reaction, if we can make things difficult for them, it could feel different. Hard one to call.”

With six games to play, Chelsea are hoping to finish their disastrous campaign on a positive note. Kai Havertz, one of many Blues players to be candid about the season, is hoping to land a knockout blow to Arsenal’s hope of winning the title on Tuesday.

“Especially because it’s a derby, hopefully you can get the fans back on your side a bit,” Havertz admitted. “We hope to upset Arsenal a little bit. They are in the title fight now, where we actually want to be. And if you can get one over on your opponent, it’s always good for the fans.”
