Arsenal travel to Chelsea on Wednesday for a crucial Premier League clash, as the Gunners aim to keep their top-four hopes alive. Mikel Arteta's side are hoping to bounce back from three consecutive top-flight defeats.

However, they will only go level on points with their arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur with a win at Stamford Bridge. The Lilywhites are currently fourth and boast a superior goal difference to their north London rivals. Following the announcement of the two starting lineups, it's fair to say Arsenal fans aren't particularly impressed with the players they have.

The Gunners have a number of injury problems, with first-team regulars such as Kieran Tierney, Thomas Partey, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Alexandre Lacazette all missing. That means fringe players like Mohamed Elneny and Rob Holding will come in. Eddie Nketiah, who hasn't scored a single league goal this season, is leading the line.

Supporters have been quick to point out online that Arteta's makeshift team really highlights how thin their squad is. They took to Twitter to express their lack of confidence ahead of tonight's derby in the capital. Here are some of the more pessimistic views from the Emirates faithful:
