Arteta drops Ozil and Lacazette: 4-3-3 Predicted team vs Chelsea
The Gunners will be looking for some sort of revenge away to Chelsea after the Blues’ dramatic and frankly undeserved win at the Emirates stadium in this fixture last month.
Arsenal have only managed to win a handful of games in the Premier League this season, as they sit in tenth place in the table ahead of this week’s trip to Stamford Bridge.
The Gunners were actually narrowly beaten in last season’s reverse fixture which saw Unai Emery’s side at the time come back from a two-goal deficit before losing 3-2.
A lot has happened since that match in late 2018 and the Gunners will once again be deemed as underdogs for their latest trip to Chelsea.
The Blues certainly do not have a great record at home this term, having dropped points on several occasions in matches they were expected to win on their turf.
Thus, Mikel Arteta might see this as a decent chance to pick up a big win on the road and certain players who are currently misfiring may be dropped.
Maitland-Niles – Luiz – Mustafi – Saka
Xhaka – Torreira – Guendouzi
Pepe – Nketiah – Martinelli
