Wenger's starting 11: Vermaelen starts on the bench

Arsene Wenger has decided that defender Thomas Vermaelen will start on the bench for Arsenal at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.

The Frenchman has decided to stick with the back four which played against Stoke at the Grove last weekend.

That means that Johan Djourou keeps his place on the right hand side of defence.
