Combined XI: Arsenal v Chelsea

Premier League leaders Chelsea travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal, with the hopes of taking one step closer to the title. With this being a top four encounter, the Fan Park Crew decided to see what the two teams would look like if they were combined into one.

Chelsea look like they might be without a striker, as Loic Remy, Didier Drogba and Diego Costa are all expected to miss out on the important fixture.

Arsenal, on the other hand, will be missing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and German defender Per Mertersacker - but on the plus side they will welcome the return of Mathieu Debuchy and Jack Wilshire.

Here is how the team would line-up:

Goalkeeper: Thibaut Cortois (Chelsea)

Left-back: Cesar Azpilicueta (Chelsea)

Centre-back: John Terry (Chelsea)

Centre-back: Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal)

Right-back: Branislav Ivanovic (Chelsea)

Centre Midfield: Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)

Centre Midfield: Nemanja Matic (Chelsea)

Right Wing: Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal)

Left Wing: Eden Hazard (Chelsea)

Centre-attacking-mid: Cesc Fabregas (Chelsea)

Striker: Olivier Giroud (Arsenal)
