After Friday's humiliation against promoted side Brentford, Arsenal will be keen to bounce back to winning ways as they welcome London rivals and 2020/21 European champions, Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
The Gunners are desperate for a win and keep their hopes of finishing in the top four of the Premier League table alive, and they will a facing a strong team led by Thomas Tuchel, which thrashed Crystal Palace 3-0 last Saturday.
Mike Arteta was really criticised by most of the Arsenal fans and pundits, with some claiming that the Spaniard is not fit enough to lead a big club due to lack of tactics in approaching some games.
The Spaniard will want to prove the doubters wrong on Sunday and he could be seen unleashing a strong lineup with minimum changes from the one which played at the Community Stadium on Friday.
Arteta could be seen replacing Brazilian central defender Pablo Mari with Rob Holding, after the star looked shaky and with no pace during the Brentford match.
The midfield could be controlled by former Anderlecht star Albert Sambi Lokonga and Granit Xhaka since Thomas Partey is still nursing the injury he suffered during the friendly match against Chelsea.
Bukayo Saka could be seen starting on the attacking side alongside England starlet Emile Smith Rowe and Nicholas Pepe playing as the striker.
