Chelsea fans will be looking for their team to avenge the Community Shield and FA Cup losses to the Gunners when they visit Stamford Bridge today.
The Blues started their season with a dismal 2-3 loss at home to Burnley, but they have since recovered well and have won all their subsequent matches. Their 6-0 trashing of Qarabag in the Champions League during the week is the perfect preparation for this London derby day clash. While the Blues have enjoyed some revival, their opponents in this game have had an inconsistent start to the season.
The calls for the sack of Arsene Wenger is beginning to echo around the Emirates stadium again. The Gunners started their season with a hard-fought 4-3 win over Leicester City but lost their next two league games against Stoke City and Liverpool. However, they recovered from those losses to beat Bournemouth and Fc Cologne over the past week. They had Alexis Sanchez score for them in their midweek victory, but no one is certain if he has recovered from the mental setback of seeing his move to Manchester City break down.
Chelsea has won all of their last 5 home league games against Arsenal and we believe they will continue that run in this game.
