Skipper Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is DROPPED from the Matchday squad due to disciplinary reasons but in his absence, Frenchman Alexander Lacazette is the captain on the day.

ARSENAL VS SOUTHAMPTON:

In response, Leeds United coach Marcelo Bielsa puts out his team in a 4-2-3-1 formation as he seeks to get a favourable result away at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea gaffer Thomas Tuchel is aiming to go back to winning ways, having stuttered in their last two games across all competitions.

CHELSEA VS LEEDS UNITED:

Villa manager Steven Gerrard returns to where he became a cult hero and a club legend, but he will definitely want to drive a dagger into the hearts of the Reds faithful come the end of 90 minutes.

The Anfield giants will be looking to close the gap at the top of the Premier League table to just one point, following Manchester City’s win earlier today.
