Big test awaits Arsenal and Chelsea on Saturday night as they meet at the Emirates after an unbeaten run in the ongoing Barclays Premier League.
Arsenal started the season with two boring goalless draws but turned the leaves in the later games. They look stronger now, and can surprise any team. Chelsea, the European Champions, is on a roll having won four of the five matches played so far.
Arsenal Vs Chelsea Live Coverage Information:
The match to be played at the Emirates Stadium will start at 17:15 (IST). It will be telecast live on ESPN channel.
What to Expect from the Teams:
Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger may rest Per Mertesacker and bring in Thomas Vermaelen, who was out of action due to illness. Jack Wilshere, Bacary Sagna, Tomas Rosicky, Lukasz Fabianski and Wojciech Szczesny have been ruled out for Saturday's match due to injury.
Chelsea captain John Terry will be available for Saturday's match though the FA has slapped a four-match ban and a fine of £220,000 fine against him after he was found guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand. Frank Lampard, who has been out of action due to ankle injury, will return to the team but Daniel Sturridge is unlikely to make it.
The Gunners are in the fifth position on the score table with three draws and two wins. They beat Liverpool 2 - 0 after being criticized for two goalless draws. Then they thrashed Southampton 6-1 and held Manchester City 1-1 last weekend.
The Blues are topping the score table with nine points from five games played so far - winning four matches and drawing one. They beat Wigan, Reading, Newcastle and Stoke, and drew with Queens Park Rangers (QPR).
Arsenal has the home ground advantage but the defending European Champions is a team to beat. It is going to be a tight match.
Arsenal: Mannone, Jenkinson, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Diaby, Arteta, Cazorla , Walcott, Giroud, Podolski
Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Cole, Mikel, Lampard, Ramires, Hazard, Torres, Mata
