The most awaited London derby will take place today at Emirates Stadium as Arsenal prepares to host Chelsea in their game week two of the newly commenced season.
The Gunners opened the new campaign with a dismal 2-0 defeat to newly promoted, Brentford last Friday. On the other hand, The Blues humiliated Crystal palace in a 3-0 victory.
Chelsea has been struggling in their final third but things look different as Lukaku will make his first debut at the Chelsea squad since his signing. Also, the return of Hakim Ziyech who picked up an injury during the Super cup final against Villarreal will be a huge boost for the visitors. On the other hand, The home side will be without Captain Aubemeyang and Willian who will undergo tests because they are feared to contract COVID.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Chambers, White, Mari, Tierney; Xhaka, Lokonga; Saka, Smith Rowe, Pepe; Martinelli
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Chalobah, Christensen, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Kante, Alonso; Mount, Havertz; Lukaku.
Tuchel is a result-oriented coach and today he'll be traveling for a win. The arrival of Lukaku may result in a very creative final third which will give a lot of problems to arsenal's defense. Hence today's clash will end up in high scoring with Chelsea carrying the day.
