Arsenal handed major team news boost ahead of Chelsea clash

Arsenal have been handed a major team news boost ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea as it has emerged that Alexandre Lacazette has travelled with the squad.

The French striker, who missed the 1-0 defeat to Southampton at St. Mary’s, Arsenal’s third straight loss, was touch and go for the clash with Thomas Tuchel’s side, Mikel Arteta revealed on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old had tested positive for COVID-19 for the second time this season last week, but seemingly came through Tuesday’s training sessions with no complications or issues, meaning that he could well feature from the off as the Gunners look to get their top-4 charge back on track having lost valuable ground in recent weeks.

Young squad theme continues

Arsenal’s squad has been paper thin since January, when several fringe options left the club on a mix of loan and permanent deals. As a result, there has been plenty of youth on the Gunners’ bench, with the likes of Marcelo Flores, Arthur Okonkwo, Zak Swanson and Charlie Patino all having featured this season among the 18-man matchday squad.

And the trip to Stamford Bridge will be no different, as both Omari Hutchinson and Miguel Azeez have been spotted with the first-team squad in west London.

Meanwhile, it is thought that Romelu Lukaku will be starting for the home side as they look to continue to solidify their grasp on third place and keep momentum going as the club’s season drifts until the FA Cup final next month.
