Team news

Arsenal’s new signing Alexandre Lacazette has already proven to be a great force, scoring on his first appearance for the club. He will be expected to start alongside a couple of other new faces such as the fairly useful defender Sead Kolašinic. Arsenal will be determined to hang on to the likes of star man Alexis Sanchez and Meant Ozil, whilst Oxlade-Chamberlain is on Chelsea’s radar for another potential signing for the Blues.

As far as the Blues are concerned, the new signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid will be a very exciting prospect for the Chelsea fans, although he won’t be playing today. Bakayoko is out with a slight injury on his knee whilst Antonio Rüdiger has other commitments. Our star man Eden Hazard is out with a injured ankle, so it might take some youngsters to sort out the Gunners yet again. 

Absolute Chelsea’s preferred line-up: 


Moses, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Alonso 

Kanté, Fabregas 

Willian, Batshuayi, Pedro
