Arsenal hero Merson: Chelsea must play Cesc tonight

Arsenal hero Paul Merson says Chelsea boss Antonio Conte needs to field Cesc Fabregas for tonight's clash.

He wrote for the Daily Star: "Chelsea need players who can hurt you. Otherwise they're relying too much on Eden Hazard and they become predictable.

"Fabregas has to play and Conte should unleash him against Arsenal. It's his old club and he'll be right up for it.

"It would wind up the Arsenal fans as well. They will boo his every touch and get caught up in it instead of getting behind their team."
