Chelsea vs Arsenal Preview
Chelsea and Arsenal will be facing each other for the second time this season as they battled for the Community Shield in the first official match of the season. In that occasion, Arsenal managed an precious win that resulted in a negative patch for Chelsea. In fact, Chelsea lost their first league match of the season against Burnley. Since then they have turned around their season thanks to four wins, three in the Premier League and one in the Champions League. Arsenal haven’t enjoyed much success themselves after winning the Community Shield as they managed only six points in their first four league matches. That said, they will enter this match with a high morale thanks to the convincing win they managed in midweek against Cologne in the UEFA Europa League.
