Everton boss Mikel Arteta welcomes Frank Lampard and Chelsea to the Emirates Stadium for Sunday afternoon’s big London derby.

The former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielders now manage their former clubs and have both played against each other in the London derby. Now, it’s time for the duo to experience an Arsenal vs Chelsea London derby as a manager.

Meanwhile Robbie Savage has predicted that Mikel Arteta could be in for a rude awakening in his first home game in charge of Arsenal, as he told the Mirror that Chelsea would be 2-1 winners at the end of the day.

However, former Liverpool and Manchester United striker Michael Owen has predicted a goalscoring draw between Arsenal and Chelsea.

Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Chelsea have lost seven league games so far this season, and they were brought back down to earth after the euphoria of their win at Spurs on Sunday when they lost to Southampton at the Bridge on Boxing Day.

“This will be Mikel Arteta’s first game in charge of Arsenal at The Emirates and, after workmanlike draws at Everton and Bournemouth, I think the Gunners will have to again settle for a point in this London derby.”
