Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Willian will miss tomorrow's Premier League clash with London rivals Arsenal.

Speaking in his press conference ahead of the showdown at Stamford Bridge, the Blues chief has also revealed that the attacking duo of Pedro and Oscar are doubts for the fixture.

The west London outfit will be desperate to claim all three points after enduring a torrid start to the season.

Despite securing a comfortable 4-0 win against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League on Wednesday night, Mourinho's side have earned just four points from their opening five games in England's elite division this term.

In fact, the Blues already sit as many as six points behind the Gunners, so they can't afford to lose more ground over the course of this weekend. However, they may well have to take to the field against Arsenal with three of their best attacking players on the sidelines.

It's been a nightmare for Chelsea on the domestic scene so far this season. Ultimately, after securing the Premier League title with relative ease in the 2014/15 campaign, Mourinho's side have looked a shadow of the team that was previously so dominant.

Of course, the Blues will be on a high after securing a morale-boosting win in Europe in mid-week, but the challenge of Arsenal will prove a far greater test for the club. Chelsea really could get their season going with a win tomorrow lunchtime.
