Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, hs stressed the importance of Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang will miss the London Derby due to suspension.

“He’s been superb under me, he’s trained really well, he’s working so hard,” Arteta said.

“He’s scoring goals and has probably been the most important player on the team. So to lose him, obviously, is really bad news for us.”

Meanwhile, Chelsea are hoping to secure a top-four finish in the English Premier League in the current campaign.

The Blues will be banking on Tammy Abraham’s scoring ability and he is one of the most exciting young strikers in the world.

On the other hand, Arsenal are also hoping to secure a top-four finish in the English Premier League in the current campaign.

Alexandre Lacazette, who is considered to be one of the best strikers in the league, is the dangerman for the Gunners.
