Arsenal will host Chelsea at the Emirates stadium in their second match of the 2021/22 English Premier League season on Sunday.
Infoexpert24 reports that the highly coveted match will take place on Sunday, August 22, 2021, in a match every football fan is looking forward to.
Arsenal lost their first match against newly-promoted Brentford last Friday, while the European Champions, Chelsea won Crystal Palace by 3 goals to nil on Saturday.
Both teams heading into the game this coming weekend will want to prove a point.
Earlier on Monday morning, Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel said he is confident that Romelu Lukaku will be able to make his second Blues debut in that same match after the Belgian striker re-signed for the club.
The German tactician is hopeful that both N’Golo Kante and Romelu Lukaku will be available for selection for Chelsea’s next match against Arsenal and revealed that Lukaku’s arrival could prompt a change in the Chelsea squad.
“We expect Romelu to finish quarantine in time to be able to join team training on Tuesday because Monday is our day off. So we will try to prepare him to play against Arsenal and hopefully, he can be on the pitch.’ Tuchel said as seen on Chelsea’s official website.
The pressure has ramped up on Mikel Arteta and Arsenal needs to redeem a point or a win against Chelsea as their loss against Brentford has drawn so much criticism for the North London club.
