Chelsea - the Premier League champions - have been ticking over nicely since their opening weekend defeat at home to Burnley.

Pedro, Davide Zappacosta Cesar Azpilicueta, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Michy Batshuayi all found the net for their side.

After winning just four of the previous 16, Chelsea have won their last five home Premier League games against Arsenal, since a 3-5 defeat in October 2011. The former Gunner even rubbed salt into the wound when discussing Arsenal full-back Nacho Monreal, saying, "He wouldn't get into my team if I was picking a combined XI against a bottom-half team".

I think he was unfortunate in the back of the end zone, should have been our ball, first down on the 1-yard line. That was when Lynch, a former NFL Super Bowl-winning safety, was a color analyst for eight years for Fox Sports.

Sanchez is also missing from the starting XI for Sunday's match, but is among Arsene Wenger's seven subs.

These include a loss away to Stoke City and a 4-nil thrashing at the hands of Liverpool. Despite getting off to a great start in the Europa League on Thursday, securing a 3-1 win over FC Koln, Arsenal's league form has been somewhat lacklustre as they now lie in 13th in the league standings, but it is still early days.

"Of course, we have the backbone to come back".

Arsenal may not have managed to beat Chelsea in their past five at Stamford Bridge, but they have beaten the Blues in their past two games against them.

The prisoner whose detention was announced Thursday is the first known to have been captured under the Trump administration. While a few others have defected or been captured, Hughes said this new fighter could provide valuable intelligence.

Wenger remains confident that they will be available for their trip across London, while the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Danny Welbeck, Alexandre Lacazette, Granit Xhaka and Petr Cech are certain to start the game against the Blues after being given the week off.

Wenger last tasted victory on the road against one of the big boys almost 1000 days ago when they saw off Manchester City 2-0 in 2015.

Wenger's men seem more motivated as of late, so expect an Arsenal side up for the challenge. If not, expect Chelsea to run them over.
