Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will serve the last of a four-match touchline ban against Hull
Arsenal were well-beaten 3-1 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday lunchtime and are now 12 points adrift of the table-topping Blues.
Having lost at home to Watford four days earlier the Gunners needed a response but failed to deliver a big performance to keep their slim title hopes alive.

Who are the favourites to replace Arsene Wenger at Arsenal?
We all had a good chat among ourselves behind closed doors
Arsenal star Theo Walcott
In an effort to resolve their dismal run, Arsenal players met to discuss the situation to try and find a solution together, Wenger said in today's pre-match press conference.
It's not the first time the North London outfit have done this.
Arsene Wenger's Arsenal are 12 points behind Chelsea
After a five-match winless run in March 2016, Theo Walcott revealed how a team meeting organised without Wenger's knowledge breathed new life into Arsenal's faltering campaign.
"We all had a good chat among ourselves behind closed doors, without even any of the coaches or the manager knowing about anything," Walcott said at the time.
"It's important to know that, as a team, we have got it in us and we just have to produce it more often."
Wenger, who completes the last of his four-match touchline ban when his side host Hull in Saturday's early game, will hope the team meeting yields the same results as last season's.
