Chelsea vs Arsenal : Preview, Team News, Telecast Details, Predicted Lineups & More

Chelsea will welcome their arch rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday in the second gameweek of the Premier League. The Blues have won their first match comfortably in the Premier League against Huddersfield Town with a margin of 3-0. On the other hand, the Gunners did not start well in the Premier League this season. They were poorly beaten by Manchester City with a margin of 2-0.

So, now the Gunners will be desperate to snatch a win against Chelsea in this match to get back on track in the Premier League. Otherwise there will be an immense pressure on the new manager Unai Emery. On the other hand, it will also be a big test for the new manager of Chelsea- Maurizio Sarri to implement his strategy against their arch rivals Arsenal.

TEAM NEWS :

Chelsea :

Chelsea will continue to play with the 4-3-3 formation in this match also. In the midfield, Maurizio Sarri has to choose one between Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley and Ruben Loftus Cheek to play alongside Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.

Eden Hazard has come from the bench in the previous match of the Blues and assisted in the third goal of Chelsea. The Belgian has completed 6 successful take ons after coming as a substitute against Huddersfield Town. He is surely in the contention to start for Chelsea against the Gunners if he is fully in match fit condition. Either Pedro or Willian has to sit in the bench if Hazard takes his place in the starting lineup of Chelsea. There is also a possibility of using Eden Hazard as a false nine after Alvaro Morata has failed to deliver a good performance against Huddersfield Town in the previous match.

Arsenal :

Unai Emery has several problems in the team selection ahead of the match against Chelsea. Two of their reputed left backs- Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac are injured and out of the contention to play in the London Derby. Ainsley Maitland Niles also picked up a hamstring injury in the previous match against Manchester City. Stephan Lichtsteiner came as a substitute and played in the left back position in the rest of the match; but his preferred position is at the right flank. Stephan Lichtsteiner might have to start in the left back position against Chelsea as the other options are not available at this point of time.

There might be a thought in Unai Emery’s mind of starting Alexandre Lacazette along with Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as the latter was not that much effective against Manchester City as the lone centre forward. Then he might have to switch to a 4-3-3 formation from his preferred 4-2-3-1 system. Though,Unai Emery might opt to go with the same lineup against Manchester City in this match too.

MATCH DETAILS:

KICK-OFF: 5:30pm BST, 4.30 PM GMT

VENUE: Stamford Bridge

PROBABLE LINE-UPS:

Chelsea : Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Fabregas, Willian, Pedro, Hazard
