Chelsea & Arsenal combined XI: 6-5, but who to? Matic-Cazorla midfield, ex-Barcelona trio feature

Our Chelsea & Arsenal best XI ahead of Saturday’s game.

With Chelsea and Arsenal meeting in the Premier League this weekend, here’s a combined XI of the two London giants, with some one side coming out on top with six players to five…

GK: Petr Cech (Arsenal)

With Thibaut Courtois completely out of contention for much of this season, it seems fairer to match up ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech against Asmir Begovic, and it’s clear the Arsenal man comes out on top.

DR: Hector Bellerin (Arsenal)

With Branislav Ivanovic so horribly off form, Arsenal youngster Hector Bellerin seems the better bet at right-back, an incredible achievement considering the pair’s relative status last season.

DL: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

Superb for Chelsea last season, Cesar Azpilicueta still deserves the left-back slot even if he may end up moving to right-back full-time fairly soon.
