Chelsea face a trip across London to play Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, as Thomas Tuchel looks to pile the misery on Mikel Arteta and his team.
After claiming the UEFA Super Cup by beating Villarreal on penalties, the Blues started the new Premier League campaign on a bright note by registering a comfortable 3-0 win over London rivals Crystal Palace last weekend. Goals from Marcos Alonso, Christian Pulisic and Trevoh Chalobah earned Thomas Tuchel’s side all three points at Stamford Bridge.

While Chelsea will enter the London derby at the Emirates Stadium as favourites, they should be wary of Arteta’s Arsenal side that did the league double over them last season.
Chelsea have further added to their squad with the big-money capture of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan. He looks fit and ready to make his debut against the Gunners.
Christian Pulisic will miss the Blues’ clash at the Emirates Stadium after testing positive for COVID-19, Tuchel confirmed in his presser. While Pulisic will be a big miss on Sunday, the European champions got a double-injury boost with Hakim Ziyech and N’Golo Kante both training in recent days. The duo has a chance to return to the travelling squad.
