The London Derby clash with Arsenal gives Chelsea the perfect opportunity to bounce back from a bad result in their last league game.

Chelsea were beaten 2-0 at home to South Coast club Southampton in what was one of the recent surprise results in the Premier League this season and they have the chance to bounce back immediately with the short trip to face fellow capital club Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Southampton forwards Michael Obafemi and Nathan Redmond scored either side of the halftime interval to give the Saints a memorable result against the Blues who have now lost five of their last seven games in the Premier League.

Chelsea have struggled to get results at home in the past weeks with the Blues winning just one and losing three from their last four home games in the Premier League.

The Blues have had a better outing away from Stamford Bridge as evident by the big win over fellow London club Tottenham Hotspur and they wpuld be hoping for another London Derby triumph vs hosts Arsenal.

Chelsea XI vs Arsenal (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga, Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Antonio Rudiger, Emerson Palmieri, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount; Willian, Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic.
