After losing his first game as Arsenal manager against defending champions Manchester City, Unai Emery faces another tough assignment at Chelsea this Saturday.
In the wake of the lacklustre performance last week, Emery will probably be expected to make a few changes in the starting XI as Gunners aim to earn their first points of the new Premier League season.
The visitors would be pleased to have Nacho Monreal back in training and the dependable Spaniard will be expected to take back his spot at left-Back.
Striker Alexandre Lacazette impressed as a substitute against City and could also get the nod ahead of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who clearly looked off pace. Lacazette’s inclusion would mean much-needed support for Aubameyang at the top, with Ozil just behind to provide decisive passes.
New boy Lucas Torreira could get a start in place of the unimpressive Granit Xhaka in midfield. Even though he endured a difficult start in the first match, Petr Cech is likely to hold on to his place as goalkeeper but one can’t help but feel that it’s the right time to hand Bernd Leno his debut.
