Arsenal were handed one of the toughest fixtures in the Premier League as they play against Manchester City in gameweek 1, and next up see the Gunners travelling around London to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea next.
Arsenal’s were totally outclassed by Man City in every department, and it’s clearly seen below the Gunners are in comparable to the Citizens. However, Arsenal would be looking to raise their game when next they play against Chelsea this weekend.
The Gunners new head-coach Unai Emery would need to make available an opportunity that would see the duo of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette taking part together against the Blues as they were left isolated most of the times in the first outings this campaign.
However, their performance at defence would still be an issue when playing against Chelsea that boast of pacey attackers in likes of Eden Hazard and Willian, and the big test for Arsenal would be to keep a clean sheet against the FA Cup holders.
Arsenal current team news:
Ainsley Maitland-Niles limped off injured against Manchester City, and this would see him ruled out against Chelsea. Arsenal also have two other left-back Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac already out injured, and Emery would have to get someone to fill in this position. Centre-back Laurent Koscielny is also sidelined for the near future.
