All Chelsea players in contention for Arsenal - Conte

Antonio Conte says all of his Chelsea players have put their name forward for the weekend's trip to Arsenal.

The Blues meet the Gunners in the London derby at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and Conte insists he does not have a line-up in mind after seeing a altered outfit come from behind to beat Leicester City 4-2 in the EFL Cup on Tuesday night.

"All the players in my squad have the possibility to play against Arsenal," said Conte.

"There are three days before the game and they have the opportunity to show me during the training sessions, to have a good shape, and convince me to put them in the line-up.

"I want to win. My choice is done to win. I don't care what the surname is. It's important when I call someone to play to show me my choice is not wrong."

Goals from Gary Cahill and Cesar Azpilicueta drew the Blues level at 2-2 after Shinji Okazaki's earlier double for the Foxes before Cesc Fabregas scored twice in extra-time to send the West Londoners through to the fourth round.
