Chelsea will look to build on their impressive start to the season when they welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge this evening.
Maurizio Sarri has decided to name an unchanged line-up from the side that beat Huddersfield last weekend so it means Eden Hazard must make-do with a place on the bench once again with Pedro and Willian starting in attack.
Mateo Kovacic is fit enough for a place on the bench as Ross Barkley keeps his place in midfield alongside Jorginho and N’Golo Kante.
Unai Emery has chosen to drop Aaron Ramsey to the bench with Alex Iwobi coming in to the side while Alexandre Lacazette must also make-do with a place among the substitutes today.
Nacho Monreal is fit to return at left-back and summer signing Lucas Torreira remains on the bench with Matteo Guendouzi keeping his place in midfield.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Kante, Jorginho, Willian, Barkley, Pedro, Morata.
Subs: Caballero, Christensen, Zappacosta, Moses, Hazard, Kovacic, Giroud
Cech, Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Iwobi, Aubameyang.
Subs: Leno, Lichtsteiner, Elneny, Torreira, Ramsey, Welbeck, Lacazette
