Arsenal and Chelsea will be playing tomorrow, Saturday, in the Premier League Matchday two as one of the toughest matches for this matchday where a London Derby will take place between the two Premier League giants.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Saturday, August 18 at 5:30 PM BST.
Where: Stamford Bridge
Who will play?
Chelsea aren’t expected to make a lot of changes compared to the team that won against Huddersfield Town last weekend, except Eden Hazard may start again.
On Arsenal’s side, the Gunners are facing some injuries in the left back position where Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland Niles are injured.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows for Arsenal.
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech
Defenders: Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Shkodran Mustafi, and Hector Bellerin.
Midfielders: Aaron Ramsey, Lucas Torreira, and Granit Xhaka
Forward: Mesut Ozil, Pierre Emerick Aubamyeang, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows for Chelsea.
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defenders: Marcos Alonso, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, and Cesar Azpilicueta (Captain)
Midfielders: Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Ross Barkley.
Forward: Eden Hazard, Alvaro Morata, and Pedro.
It won’t be an easy game for both sides where Arsenal will be eyeing their first points this season, and Chelsea will be eyeing to stay on the top of the Premier League table.
However, we expect a 2-1 win for Chelsea.
Chelsea have won five of their last six games at home against Arsenal where they drew once 0-0 last season.
