Will Granit Xhaka start for Arsenal against Chelsea? Arsene Wenger has the answer


Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Granit Xhaka could be in the starting line-up for tomorrow's game against Chelsea.

The Gunners have bounced back from a very disappointing start to the season and will be desperate to take all three points to keep moving closer to the top of the table.

The Switzerland international scored two phenomenal goals against Hull City and Nottingham Forest and will probably feature in midfield against Antonio Conte's side.

"We had a good game at Hull and we had a good game at Nottingham Forest," Wenger told reporters.

"I believe that everybody at the moment deserves to start the game and be in the squad, so I will decide that today [Friday].

"[The players have responded] very well [to the competition]. It's always difficult to pick my team because everybody is doing well, we have seen that again against Nottingham Forest so it's positive.

"We have a balanced, mature squad where there is a fight for every single position."
