Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is ruled out because of a cut to his knee. Jack Wilshere begins a two-game ban for misconduct, but Lukas Podolski is available to make his comeback from a hamstring injury.
Chelsea right-back Branislav Ivanovic returns from suspension, meaning Cesar Azpilicueta reverts to left-back and Ashley Cole will drop to the bench.
Michael Essien serves a one-game ban after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season against Sunderland.
It's easy to forget that Arsenal came out of last weekend's round of Premier League matches still on top of the table.
The nature of their defeat at Manchester City, and the fact that many pundits already thought they couldn't win the league, has seen Arsene Wenger's team practically dismissed as contenders rather than being respected as leaders. If Arsenal were to lose to Chelsea as well, the naysayers will have a field day. Win, lose or draw, the reality is that both Arsenal and Chelsea are likely to be competing for the title well into the spring at least.
Chelsea have already won at the Emirates this season, in a League Cup tie in October. That took to nine the sequence of matches in which Arsene Wenger has tried and failed to beat Jose Mourinho and meant that Chelsea, under a giddying variety of managers, have lost only twice in their last 11 visits to Arsenal.
Dropping any points would see Arsenal relinquish top spot for the first time since September, whilst defeat would be a third consecutive loss for Arsenal for the first time since they were beaten by Barcelona, Tottenham and Wigan in quick succession in the spring of 2010.
But Chelsea look beatable. Mourinho himself has warned that they may win nothing this season, and the League Cup defeat at a spirited but limited Sunderland has raised further question marks - particularly away from home where they have lost four of their last six matches in all competitions.
Scoring goals is one of their more obvious difficulties. Prior to the weekend, there were 11 players who have scored more Premier League goals than Chelsea's top scorer, who is Eden Hazard with six league strikes. The Blues' most prolific scorer in the Premier League, Romelu Lukaku, is playing on loan for Everton.
It's possible that both managers might think a point is a decent outcome, but such is the lingering whiff of antipathy between them, it's possible that both will strain every sinew to inflict a satisfying blow to the other. If they do, it'll be well worth watching.

Chelsea have won the three most recent encounters, including a 2-0 away win in the fourth round of the League Cup on 29 October.
Arsene Wenger has never won against Jose Mourinho as an opposition manager. His record is four draws and five defeats in nine league and cup games.

In the Gunners' 6-3 defeat at Manchester City, nine of the 13 shots on target resulted in goals.
That result was their heaviest league loss since the 8-2 thrashing at Manchester United in August 2011.
They conceded as many goals at the Etihad Stadium as in their previous 11 league games.
Arsenal are one shy of 1300 Premier League points under Arsene Wenger.

Chelsea have had 11 different managers (excluding short-term caretakers) since Arsene Wenger was appointed, and 12 in total following Jose Mourinho's return for a second spell in charge.
In the last six meetings between the sides, Wenger has faced five different Chelsea managers.
The Blues have kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 Premier League matches.
Eden Hazard has registered 15 Premier League assists since the start of last season. Prior to the latest round of matches, only Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard have matched that tally.
No striker has scored an away league goal for Chelsea in 2013. Fernando Torres was the last centre forward to net on the road for the Blues, doing so in a 3-1 win at Sunderland on 8 December 2012.
Juan Mata has scored in each of his four starts against Arsenal in all competitions for Chelsea.
