The European Super League hopefuls were brought low and defeated comfortably by Premier League new boys Brentford in the first game of the new season. See here for our full Premier League TV schedule.

Mikel Arteta is coming under increasing scrutiny for his role in Arsenal's revival – or lack of – and he will demand a big performance against a London club on the up.

Champions League and Super Cup winners Chelsea are becoming increasingly recognised as bona fide Premier League title contenders in 2021/22 and will be determined to prove their credentials with a convincing win here.

Romelu Lukaku will hope to make the squad for this one as he gears up for his second Chelsea debut following a £100million move from Inter.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Chelsea

The most damning part of Arsenal's defeat to Brentford is that nobody was particularly surprised by it – nobody was shocked.

The Gunners – who had started to pride themselves on defensive stability – conceded a second goal that would've made Sunday League stalwarts blush.

The atmosphere could quickly turn toxic on Sunday if Chelsea find the net early on. Arteta is running out of time to prove he can turn Arsenal into a team capable of competing with the likes of Chelsea once again.

Our prediction: Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea (17/2 at bet365)
