Arsenal – Chelsea
Arsenal and Chelsea face each other in the London derby on Sunday afternoon. Arteta could really do with a win this weekend to take the pressure off following that disappointing defeat at Brentford last week. Chelsea could hand Romelu Lukaku his second debut.
Arsenal really missed their two top goalscorers against Brentford but even if they had played, they probably would have lost the game. Arteta’s side put in a poor performance and the pressure is already on the Spanish manager despite just one game being played. Chelsea are expected to be without Ziyech and Loftus-Cheek for the short trip to the Emirates but Kante could return to bolster their midfield. New signing Romelu Lukaku is expected to feature against the Gunners and if he does, we’re convinced he will score.
Chelsea might have lost their last three competitive games against Arsenal but they did secure a 2-1 win when the pair met earlier this month for a friendly. Arsenal lost against Brentford last week while Chelsea hammered Crystal Palace 3-0, so you can see why we’re backing the visitors to secure all 3pts on Sunday.
