Arsenal Form & Team News

Arsenal are currently in the 17th position after the first game week. They haven’t opened their account yet as they suffered a 2-0 loss against the newly promoted team Brentford. Arsenal started off decently but conceded an early goal in the first half and then again in the second half as well. Despite dominating possession, shots and shots on target, they did not manage to score a single goal. This is Arsenal’s third loss in a row and fourth loss in the last five matches that they have played.

Mikel Arteta will definitely make some changes to the lineup after this poor display of performance. He might consider getting in Bukayo Saka into playing Xl. Also, he doesn’t have the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to pick from as they are out due to illness. Apart from these two, Edward Nketiah, Gabriel and Thomas Partey are also out due to injuries. So, this would be slightly tricky for Arteta to pick an ideal XI for the match against Chelsea.

Chelsea Form & Team News

Chelsea on the other hand are in the second position of the league table after their first match. They started off exceptionally well against Crystal Palace as they went 2-0 up in the first half itself courtesy of goals from Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic. Then Trevoh Chalobah added a third goal early in the second half to make it 3-0. This win extends their unbeaten streak to six matches including 5 wins and one draw. They will be looking to repeat the same against a struggling Arsenal side and make it two wins in a row.

Marcos Alonso was the star of the night for Chelsea against Crystal Palace as he scored a goal and managed a clean sheet as well. Thomas Tuchel might consider playing the same set of players against Arsenal that played in the opening match. He still has his ace midfielder Ngolo Kante on the injured list due to his muscle injury and might get a nod to play if he is passed fit by the physio. The other key injuries are Hakim Ziyech and Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Chelsea will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of Romelu Lukaku to strengthen their attack.
