Midfielders Ramires and Willian are suspended for Premier League leaders Chelsea’s showdown with Arsenal on Saturday following their dismissals in the controversial loss at Aston Villa. Ramires begins a three-match ban and Willian is unavailable for one game, missing only the Arsenal contest. Left-back Ashley Cole (knee) is missing against his former club, while Nemanja Matic and Mohamed Salah are available after being ineligible in Europe in midweek.

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky faces a fitness test on an ankle problem ahead of the trip to leaders Chelsea. German international Mesut Ozil is out with a hamstring, but Sweden midfielder Kim Kallstrom could be in the squad for the first time after suffering with a back problem. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey is still a couple of weeks away from full fitness, while Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby remain out.
