Hazard, Sanchez Set to Start as Chelsea Host Arsenal in London Derby

Arsene Wenger's side will travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday looking for their first victory at the stadium since October 2011, and Conte is expecting a hard test against his London rivals.

The Gunners were roundly beaten 4-0 at Liverpool before the recent worldwide break and showed none of the commitment, guile or ability that was on show here.

'I think that actually in terms of rivalries that Chelsea have, the one with Tottenham is perhaps even bigger than Arsenal, ' said the 23-year-old.

Chelsea will be more frustrated by the result given how they have played in recent weeks but it could still prove a vital point later in the campaign.

Arsenal are likely to recall a host of first-team regulars for the short trip.

After winning just four of the previous 16, Chelsea have won their last five home Premier League games against Arsenal, since a 3-5 defeat in October 2011.

Mesut Ozil is not in Arsenal's squad for their crunch Premier League clash against Chelsea, while Alexis Sanchez is on the substitutes' bench. Interestingly, in their last 13 visits to teams who finished inside the top six last season, Arsenal have failed to pick up a victory with their last win coming against Manchester City in 2015.

Chelsea are likely to rotate their options after making changes for the Qarabag contest, with playmaker Eden Hazard in contention to start for the Blues for the first time this season. Francis Coquelin is out with a hamstring problem and Santi Cazorla is ruled out with an ankle injury. The answer of all my players in the last game was positive.
