Sarri considers forward options ahead of Arsenal match

Chelsea's Eden Hazard shakes hands with manager Maurizio Sarri after being substituted off

Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri could opt to restore Olivier Giroud or Alvaro Morata up front, or continue with Eden Hazard, in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Morata was left out of the squad to face Newcastle last week, when Hazard started as a ‘false nine’, amid doubts over the Spain striker’s long-term future.

Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back) is the only definite injury absentee.

Provisional squad: Kepa, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud, Zappacosta, Willian, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Morata, Luiz, Emerson Palmieri, Ampadu, Hudson-Odoi.
