Reigning Premier League Champions Chelsea have made a decent start to their new season, as they have bagged nine points from their first four games and are currently placed in the 3rd spot in the league table. The Blues are currently flying high and are apparently very confident, particularly after their 2017-18 campaign’s first UEFA Champions League group stage match win against Qarabag, which ended in a 6-0 victory for them.

Antonio Conte’s men are due to host their arch rivals at their very own backyard this weekend and at the onset, it promises to be a cracking game of football. Here is how we expect Chelsea to line-up against Arsene Wenger’s troops on Sunday.

Defence

Thibaut Courtois is expected to start with the gloves as the custodian behind the trio of defenders in the shapes of Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz and Cesar Azpilicueta. Rudiger has fit in seamlessly in Conte’s tactical nous after his move to the Stamford Bridge from AS Roma during the summer transfer window.

Despite the fact that Gary Cahill is back from his three-match domestic ban for his red card tackle against Burnley on the opening day of the season, Conte might be inclined to go with Rudiger. Luiz is expected to be placed centrally, with Azpilicueta to his right to complete a three-man defensive setup.

Midfield

N’Golo Kante and Tiemoue Bakayoko are anticipated to be engineered in the defensive midfield position as the pair would be used to cushion the backline by dismantling the offensive endeavours of Arsenal. They would need to make their presence felt this weekend.

Newcomer Davide Zappacosta should be given the nod ahead of Victor Moses, as the former Torino man looks like a really dangerous player who can bring a lot of creativity, pace and exuberance on the right and from the other shore, we feel Marcos Alonso would be getting the nod to start.

Attack

Alvaro Morata has been a sensational signing for the Pensioners so far in the league this season and having bagged a goal against Leicester City in Chelsea’s 1-2 away win at King Power Stadium, he should be the one spearheading the attack of his employers.

On the left-wing position, Eden Hazard is expected to start after finding the back of the net on Tuesday night and from the right-wing slot, we believe that Willian would be afforded a place owing to the sheer offensive prowess he offers, including his pace, shrewd movements and creative mentality.

Here is how they might line up:
