Alexis benched, Ozil left out & still no start for Hazard

Postado Setembro 17, 2017

Eden Hazard, meanwhile, is also named as a sub as he is again made to wait for his first start for the club in the 2017-18 campaign.

After a tough match with Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday night, the Gunners may be feelilng a little delicate but they will be confident having won their previous two encounters, in the FA Cup final and the Community Shield.

Mesut Ozil looks set to miss Arsenal's key clash at Chelsea.

"When you lose there is always disappointment but I always see a good mentality from my players when there is a defeat". I think even Luiz will accept he went in too strong.

Reacting to Arsenal's team on Sky Sports, Neville said: 'I'm amazed, I expect Chelsea to bulldoze them now. They lost only one player now, (Alex) Oxlade-Chamberlain.

That opening weekend loss to Burnley aside, it has been a flawless start for Chelsea, with three successive league wins followed by a 6-0 thrashing of Qarabag in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Ramsey had a number of chances for the Gunners as he produced an impressive performance for Arsene Wenger's men in west London. Interestingly, in their last 13 visits to teams who finished inside the top six last season, Arsenal have failed to pick up a victory with their last win coming against Manchester City in 2015.

Antonio Conte, meanwhile, is still unwilling to risk Eden Hazard following his lengthy lay-off with an ankle injury - the Belgium global will start the fixture on the bench. The answer of all my players in the last game was positive. "Then I'll try to make the best decision for the Arsenal game".
