Arsenal vs Chelsea Match Preview and Team News
Mikel Arteta’s side has had something of a frustrating transfer window despite the £50m arrival of Ben White and stumbled into the new season with a 2-0 opening-day defeat at newly-promoted Brentford. The performance and result set alarm bells ringing, and Arsenal must pick themselves up quickly if they are to better last season’s eighth-placed finish. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both missed the trip to Brentford due to illness, and Arteta is unsure whether the forwards will be available for this weekend. Eddie Nketiah would have been an option, but he is out with an ankle injury, while Thomas Partey (ankle) and Gabriel (knee) are also sidelined. Emile Smith Rowe shows his talent and should be one of the leading players in the future. Nicolas Pepe showed why he was brought in. He has good dribbling, and speed is his advantage.
As for Chelsea, the Champions League holders are expected to be serious title contenders this term – especially after re-signing £97.5m Romelu Lukaku. Last weekend, the Blues brushed off Crystal Palace 3-0, and Thomas Tuchel will be confident of three more points in north London, but anything can happen in a derby. As for Chelsea, club-record signing Lukaku has declared himself fit to face the Gunners, with the only question mark over whether he will start or come off the bench for his second debut for the Blues. N’Golo Kante should be back from an ankle injury, though Ruben Loftus-Cheek is out after testing positive for Covid-19 – and Hakim Ziyech is recovering from the shoulder injury he picked up in the Super Cup win. Trevoh Chalobah has started the season well with a memorable goal against Palace and could start once again here – though Tuchel may be tempted to bring Thiago Silva back in for his experience. Christian Pulisic plays fantastically and creates a lot of problems for the opposition’s defense. Many clubs are ready to give a fortune for the arrival of this guy. Timo Werner is an incredible player, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. He should build up on his last season’s performance.
