Arteta drops Lacazette, Bellerin starts: 4-3-3 Predicted team vs Chelsea
Arsenal will hoping to earn their first Premier League win at the Emirates stadium since October when they welcome Chelsea on Sunday.
Having sacked Unai Emery last month, the Gunners had no choice but to find a replacement fast as the team continued to struggle with Freddie Ljungberg briefly in charge.
New manager Mikel Arteta kicked off his reign as Arsenal’s new manager with a draw on Thursday as a goal from Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in the second half of the game earned the visitors a point at Bournemouth.
Chelsea are the only side that Arsenal are yet to play against this season, and even though Frank Lampard’s side suffered another home loss yesterday, the Blues have one of the best records in away games this term.
Considering how inconsistent his performances have been, it might be a risk to play David Luiz against his former club on a potentially emotional occasion.
Meanwhile, Alexandre Lacazette’s will have to make way for an actual winger in order for Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang to return to the centre-forward where he is at his best.
Here’s hoping Hector Bellerin is deemed match fit while Gabriel Martinelli possibly returns as well.
Bellerin – Chambers – Mustafi – Saka
Xhaka – Torreira – Guendouzi
Pepe – Aubameyang – Ozil
