Chelsea want to make a statement of intent as the Premier League champions host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge today.



Antonio Conte's Blues began the campaign with a 3-2 home defeat by Burnley, but have won their next three games - including a 2-1 Wembley victory against Tottenham - to ally fears of a similar title defence to Jose Mourinho's ill-fated end to life at Chelsea.


While Chelsea will be confident heading into Sunday's clash, Arsene Wenger needs a result to get the critics off his back after a tough start to the season.

Arsenal have beaten Chelsea in their last two domestic matches - the FA Cup Final and Community Shield - but two defeats in the Gunners' opening four League games means Wenger can ill-afford another loss so early in the campaign.

Start time

Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge with kick-off scheduled for 1:30pm on Sunday, September 17.

TV and live online coverage

The match will be televised live on Sky Sports' Premier League and Main Event channels. Alternatively, you can follow live updates and analysis with Standard Sport’s blog from 12pm.

Team News

Arsenal

The Gunners have a Europa League game against Koln to navigate before they make preparations for the game against the Blues, but Wenger is likely to rotate his key players to ensure they remain fit and available.

Francis Coquelin has been struck down with a hamstring injury and is unlikely to play, while Santi Cazorla is training again, but will not be ready for a number of weeks.

Potential starting XI: Cech; Mustafi, Monreal, Koscielny; Bellerin, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Ramsey; Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette.

Conte chose to rest a number of players during the week against Qarabag, with David Luiz and Alvaro Morata among those to drop to the bench. Both should return to the starting line-up on Sunday and Eden Hazard could also feature from the start having played the guts of an hour.

Gary Cahill returns from suspension and should take his place in the heart of defence ahead of Antonio Rudiger.

Potential starting XI: Courtois; Cahill, Azpilicueta, Luiz; Alonso, Zappacosta, Kante, Fabregas, Hazard; Pedro, Morata.
