Mikel Arteta's side welcome the Blues to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening and they're currently 15th in the Premier League table.

It's a stark contrast to their London rivals, who started the day in fifth and just six points off Liverpool in top spot.

WhoScored have created a combined team and Ceballos, who is on loan from Real Madrid, joins N'Golo Kante in central midfield.


But the Spaniard is only in on a technicality, as Hakim Ziyech has been out injured since the start of the month.

Check out the entire team below.

GK: Edouard Mendy (Chelsea) - 6.57 rating

RB: Reece James (Chelsea) - 7.13 rating

CB: Kurt Zouma (Chelsea) - 7.34 rating

CB: Thiago Silva (Chelsea) - 7.04 rating

LB: Ben Chilwell (Chelsea) - 7.28 rating

There is no place for Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the side or summer acquisition Gabriel.

Of Frank Lampard's summer recruits, four of them make the team in the form of Mendy, Silva, Chilwell and Werner.

Lampard has one of the strongest squads in the league at his disposal but recently criticised the Premier League's fixture list.

They're back in action on Monday evening against Aston Villa and the former England man isn't happy with a gap of just 48 hours.

He told a press conference per Goal: "I don't see how it's a fair playing field, I think it's wrong and it's not going to be the best for the players that play at the top level. Don't get me wrong, Aston Villa have the same problem. Us playing them, we'll both have the same problems.

"But I'm just saying we are not getting the same rest period that other teams are getting. It's not good even for the players to go out and train let alone play to a high level of 90 minutes. Everybody in the Premier League knows that."
