Chelsea face Arsenal on Sunday as Antonio Conte’s side look to continue their winning run.
Having fallen to a 3-2 defeat to Burnley on the opening day of the Premier League campaign, the champions have responded emphatically, winning four games on the trot and positioning themselves back alongside Manchester United and Manchester City at the top of the table.
The next hurdle for Conte’s side to overcome is Arsenal. The Gunners are yet to pick up a point on the road this term, having lost 1-0 at Stoke and 4-0 against Liverpool, and with any luck they won’t be getting anything out of this game either.
Conte will be boosted by the return of Eden Hazard, who has featured as a substitute in both of Chelsea’s previous two games and is surely not far away from making his first start of the season. Gary Cahill has also served his three-match suspension and is back in contention.
It remains to be seen whether Danny Drinkwater, who missed out on Tuesday night through injury, will be fit to feature on Sunday.
Here’s how TalkChelsea predict that Chelsea will lineup against Arsenal this weekend.
Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Rudiger; Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Kante, Alonso; Pedro, Hazard, Morata.
