Arsenal vs Chelsea team news
Alexandre Lacazette will miss out after testing positive for coronavirus before the Brentford game but Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be assessed, while Gabriel Magalhaes, Thomas Partey and Eddie Nketiah are injured.

Arsenal vs Chelsea preview
After finishing the last season in strong form with five successive wins, the Gunners will have started the summer in an optimistic mood ahead of the upcoming campaign.
However, a run of disappointing pre-season friendly defeats against Hibs, Chelsea and Tottenham may have caused slight concern, which was only reinforced by the poor display at the Brentford Community Stadium last week.
With confidence at a low, they will be up against it to frustrate a team that are on a high after last season’s Champions League success and which have just welcomed back Lukaku in a club-record deal.
Indeed, Thomas Tuchel was able to field an under-strength side and still enjoy a comfortable 3-0 victory over Palace last weekend, underlining the strength in depth at his disposal.
Arsenal vs Chelsea tips & predictions
All in all, those 3/4 (1.75) odds look like good value on the visitors compounding Arsenal’s misery by coming out on top at the Emirates Stadium.
