The pair missed the 1-1 draw against Sheffield United at the weekend, and will again be absent as Mikel Arteta’s side travel to west London.
The Gunners have confirmed that Kolasinac is still recovering from the left thigh strain that kept him out of their Emirates clash with the Blades, while Nelson is out with a hamstring problem.
Both are expected to return to full training during the winter break, meaning they will also miss the clash against Burnley on 2 February.
Sokratis was also left out of the side on Saturday after suffering from illness, but Arsenal confirmed that the Greek defender will be assessed ahead of the midweek clash. With Kieran Tierney still in rehabilitation after his shoulder problem, Bukayo Saka is again set to deputies at left-back against Chelsea.
The teenager started against Sheffield United on Saturday, and Gunner’s boss Mikel Arteta was full of praise for his performance.
“I think he could (have a future at left-back) because he’s willing to learn, he is applying himself the big time he is someone that has never played (that position) before but he’s really trying to do it as well as possible,” Arteta said.
Elsewhere, Arsenal could make changes in attack for the Chelsea clash, after Eddie Nketiah returned to the Arsenal squad at the weekend. After being recalled from his loan spell at Leeds United, the striker was set to be sent out to another Championship club, but after watching him in training, Arteta opted against sending Nketia on another short-term deal.
Speaking to reporters, Arteta admitted that the forward has a chance of featuring from the start at Stamford Bridge. We will assess who is in the best conditions to play in who is training well and we’ll make the decision based on that.
