It's going to be clash of the titans between arsenal and chelsea as London rival meets at Stamford bridge.
unai Emery will be hoping to get his Arsenal
tenure up and running at the second attempt
when his side take on Chelsea at Stamford
Bridge on Saturday evening.
The Gunners were well beaten by champions
Manchester City on the opening weekend of
the Premier League season, while this
weekend's opponents cruised to three points
at Huddersfield Town.
The ease with which Chelsea came away from
the John Smith's Stadium with victory last
weekend left new boss Maurizio Sarri
wondering whether his side will click into gear
sooner than he anticipated.
Rather than taking three or four months to
adapt to his high-intensity style of play, the
Italian admitted that the Blues may find their
groove this side of October.
Time is not something that Chelsea managers
tend to be afforded, of course, but even
Roman Abramovich will have some sympathy for
Sarri, who was appointed with less than a
month's preparation for the new campaign.
After the disappointment of finishing fifth
last time out, softened somewhat by the FA
Cup success in Antonio Conte's final game in
charge, Sarri has rolled out a new system,
new style of play and has integrated some new
players into the side.
Jorginho has adapted well to English football,
helping to create attacks from deep and
freeing up N'Golo Kante to play a little higher
up the field, while Kepa Arrizabalaga kept a
clean sheet on what proved to be a quiet
debut in West Yorkshire.Arsenal lost their opening match to Manchester city at emirates stadium and the are hoping to bounce back aqainst London rival chelsea.
