#Live: Lampard keeps fate with Willian, unveils Chelsea squad vs Arsenal ahead Premier League clash; Xhaka out

Granit Xhaka has missed Arsenal’s clash with Chelsea amid speculation over his future.

Xhaka is a target for Hertha Berlin and reports suggest he has already agreed personal terms with the Bundesliga side.

The Swiss midfielder’s future has been unclear following his clash with supporters during the draw with Crystal Palace .

He was subsequently stripped of the captaincy by former boss Unai Emery but returned towards the end of his tenure, and featured under interim boss Freddie Ljungberg.

But despite insisting he wanted him to stay, Mikel Arteta has not included Xhaka in his squad for the London derby with Chelsea .

Hertha Berlin wanted to strike an immediate agreement with Arsenal , ensuring Xhaka can join them for their training camp in the States next week.

Arsenal starting line up: Leno; Maitland-Niles, Chambers, Luiz, Saka; Torreira, Guendouzi; Nelson, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
