Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Arsenal

Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Chelsea ahead of Sunday's Premier League fixture with Arsenal.

Chelsea make the short trip across London to face Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Despite Frank Lampard's side remaining in fourth position in the standings, the Blues are now under pressure again to retain their grip of the final Champions League place.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up their latest injury and suspension news ahead of the showdown in England's capital.
