Boost for Chelsea as Arsenal could be without five first-team stars for weekend



Another exciting encounter as Arsenal ready to battle Chelsea to regain their confident following the shameful defeat they suffer last week 

However, according to The Mirror, Arsenal could be forced to take to the field this weekend against Chelsea with five first-team stars unavailable.
According to the report, the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Thomas Partey, Gabriel Magalhaes and Eddie Nketiah are all in doubt for the clash next Sunday. Four of the five players would have been expected to feature in Arsenal’s strongest XI had they been available.

Unlike Arsenal, Chelsea goes into the game full of belief and could also welcome back Romelu Lukaku and N’Golo Kante. The former could very well make his second debut for the club this weekend and finally, break his duck in Blue.


With Gabriel absent, Lukaku will go up against Ben White and Pablo Mari. We would not put it past Lukaku to dominate his opponents on the night.


But Thomas Tuchel’s European champions will be ready and could very well put the Gunners to the sword. Chelsea’s job could be made easier if the Gunners go into the game sans some of their best players.
