Chelsea will remain without the injured John Terry when they visit rivals Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday.

The captain and central defender suffered an ankle injury in the recent 2-2 draw with Swansea but, despite optimism that he would, he has not recovered on time. It is hoped he and fellow central defender Kurt Zouma, who injured his anterior cruciate ligaments, will soon return to training.

Beyond them manager Antonio Conte has a fully-fit squad from which to choose, and must decide whether or not to retain Cesc Fabregas against his former team after his two goals at Leicester.

Provisional squad: Courtois, Begovic, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, Alonso, Cahill, Luiz, Kante, Matic, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Mikel, Oscar, Hazard, Pedro, Moses, Willian, Batshuayi, Costa, Eduardo.
