Arsenal will be bidding to avoid a fourth Premier League defeat on the bounce when Chelsea welcome them to Stamford Bridge for Wednesday’s London derby.

The downward slump of Mikel Arteta’s side continued with a 1-0 loss to Southampton on Saturday afternoon, as Jan Bednarek struck the only goal on the South Coast.

Taking zero points from a possible nine since the international break has seen Arsenal drop to sixth in the rankings, although they remain on the coat-tails of both Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Football Audit rounds up all of Arsenal’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with the Blues.
