I am backing Chelsea to continue their perfect start and brush aside Arsenal, who were below-par in their first match. Romelu Lukaku should fancy his chances of a goal on his second Chelsea debut.

  • Arsenal haven’t beaten Chelsea in any of their last 10 meetings on a British Sunday, losing 8 (Premier League).
  • Arsenal have lost their first home match of the season in 5 of their last 10 seasons (Premier League).
  • Chelsea have won 6 of their last 9 away matches (Premier League).
  • Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku scored a goal on his debuts with Everton and Manchester United (Premier League).

Head to Head

Arsenal and Chelsea have faced each other 203 times in all competitions with Arsenal winning 80 and losing 65, while the remaining 58 were drawn.

Last season, Arsenal did a league double over Chelsea. The Gunners won 3-1 at the Emirates, while the reverse fixture saw Arsenal win 1-0 with Emile Smith Rowe scoring the lone goal.

Arsenal Form

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by newly promoted Brentford on the first day of the season. They now have to produce a much more improved performance in this match.

Arsenal will hope that their new defensive signing Ben White will be able to keep Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku at bay.

With Manchester City up next, Arsenal can’t afford a loss, but Arteta’s men are up against the tide.

Arsenal Team News

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both expected to miss this game. Gabriel, Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah are all out through injuries. New signing Martin Odegaard won’t be available for this game.

Chelsea Form

Chelsea kicked off the new campaign with a convincing 3-0 win over Crystal Palace. Goals from Marcos Alonso, Christian Pulisic and Trevoh Chalobah were enough for a smooth win.

With new signing Lukaku set to slot straight into the playing XI, manager Thomas Tuchel will be brimming with confidence.

Chelsea lost both their league matches to Arsenal last season. However, they are a completely changed side now with Tuchel winning the Champions League last season and Super Cup this campaign.

Chelsea Team News

Hakim Ziyech is ruled out until the international break with a shoulder injury. Christian Pulisic is out due to Covid-19. N’Golo Kante is expected to start while Romelu Lukaku is also expected to be available.

Chelsea raced off the blocks in the first match and are further strengthened with the addition of Romelu Lukaku. Arsenal are looking in poor form, highlighted by their loss on opening day.

I am backing Chelsea to exact revenge for the 3-1 loss in this fixture last season. Thomas Tuchel’s side is a completely different one now and are in better shape with new additions.
