Chelsea will host Arsenal this Sunday at Stamford Bridge and it’s going to be another cracker between the two London rivals.

Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-1 to win the FA Cup back in May and followed that up with a penalty shootout victory in the Community Shield.

However, BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson thinks Chelsea will carry the day against Arsenal this weekend.

“I fully expected Arsenal to beat Bournemouth last weekend, but that does not mean everything is rosy for the Gunners. Far from it,” he said.

“Arsenal boss Arsenal Wenger only ever seems to be a game – or even a half – away from a full-blown crisis, and I think he will have another defeat to contend with this weekend, rather than a repeat of what happened at Wembley in the FA Cup final.

“Since their opening-day defeat by Burnley, Chelsea have won four games in a row and I think the way they lost to the Clarets will actually have helped them focus.

“Sometimes you need a game to go badly like that at the start of the season to realise you need to get back at it if you want to defend your title.”
