Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku is well in contention to make his second debut for Chelsea. Lukaku was seen practicing his shots at training and could very well lead the line. Moreover, if he does start, all eyes will be on him.

Arsenal- Emile Smith Rowe

With the added responsibility of carrying the number 10 jersey, Emile Smith Rowe is also showing his class. The attacking midfielder was one of the few positives from the Brentford game. And if Arsenal are to have any chance, he will have to shine.

Arsenal vs Chelsea is always an entertaining game. Although Chelsea are the stronger team on paper, recent results have shown they tend to fluster in front of Arsenal. However keeping in mind the poor form the Gunners are in, we predict a narrow Chelsea victory.
