Arsenal vs Chelsea: How should Wenger line up against Conte?


Fresh from their impressive 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest, Arsenal need to shift the attention to their cross town rivals Chelsea where both sides are locked on same number points after 5 matches. Ahead of this all-important match, we take a look at the Predicted Arsenal lineup vs Chelsea.

Manager Arsene Wenger must be delighted to see his new signings Granit Xhaka and Skhodran Mustafi settle in the side sooner than expected. Meanwhile his third summer signing Lucas Perez got off the mark with a brace against Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup.

Arsenal currently have one of the best squads they have had in a long time and it must give them a lift ahead of their crucial game against Chelsea this weekend.

The only selection dilemma for Wenger must be the right wing position and whether he starts with Theo Walcott or he plays Perez out wide with Olivier Giroud upfront?

Although Granit Xhaka has been restricted to a role from the bench in recent Premier League matches I am certain for the Swiss International getting a starting role against Chelsea alongside Santi Cazorla.

New signing Lucas Perez is expected to start upfront on his own and look to drag the Chelsea defense which is likely to be deprived of pace with John Terry and Gary Cahill at the back.

Elsewhere Arsenal’s team remains predictable with Alexis, Ozil, Walcott, Mustafi and Koscielny expected to play key roles for the Gunners. Not to mention Petr Cech will be taking on his former side and hoping to prove their decision wrong one more time.
