Last time out, the Gunners recorded a 2-0 win over West Brom at the Emirates Stadium, with record signing Alexandre Lacazette grabbing a brace. The north London side also recorded a victory in their last Europa League outing, defeating German side Koln 3-1 on matchday one at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal host West Brom at the Emirates on Monday night, as the Gunners look to continue their positive momentum in the Premier League.

Arsenal heads into this clash on the back of a 1-0 win over League One Doncaster in the League Cup in midweek. However, it was a 0-0 draw at champions Arsenal last time out in the Premier League that will send the Gunners out in good spirits.

The draw means the Gunners are now unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger does not usually take the League Cup seriously, but will not want his side to lose any momentum built up by their positive results of late.

However, the Gunners have picked up wins against the Blues at home and in neutral venues which could give them hope of seeing past Antonio Conte’s side to boost their title hopes.

As for the hosts and defending champions, Conte’s Chelsea side are currently third in the Premier League table with nine points from four games this season, having won three on the bounce ahead of this weekend’s meeting after losing on the opening day.

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says the Gunners have to win against the defending champions in Sunday afternoon’s Premier League at Stamford Bridge to prove they are still a top side. The former striker believes Arsenal need to “show they mean business” by beating the best sides in the division, as that’s the only way their hopes of winning the title will be taken seriously.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil will miss Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash with Chelsea through injury, reports the Express. The German international trained away from the squad with six other first-team players on ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash, and still hasn’t recovered in time for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger admitted the 28-year-old was a doubt along with midfielder Aaron Ramsey for this weekend’s meeting with the Premier League defending champions, meaning the Gunners boss will be forced into some changes. Without Ramsey in the side, Mohamed Elneny or Francis Coquelin could deputise. Without Ozil for Sunday’s game, Danny Welbeck could replace him.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he doesn’t believe his side will be lacking confidence ahead of Sunday afternoon’s Premier League meeting with Chelsea, despite the Gunners’ woeful record at Stamford Bridge, reports talkSPORT.

Arsenal travel to face the defending champions without a point in their two away games this season. The Londoners haven’t won away to Chelsea in the Premier League since 2011 and have a woeful record on the road to the top-six – two wins from 21 against such opposition. But Wenger remains hopeful his side can turn things around in the big away games.

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal face a tough test as the Gunners travel to London rivals Chelsea in the Premier League.

The home side have hit form of late, recording four consecutive wins in all competitions. Last time out the Blues hammered Azerbaijan champions Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League. The big win followed a 2-1 win at Leicester in their last Premier League outing.

Unsurprisingly considering that they were champions last season, Antonio Conte’s side have a formidable record in the Premier League of late, having won nine of their last ten outings in the English top-flight. The English champions have also scored two or more goals in nine of their last ten league outings.

Posted on September 13, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

FC Koln captain Matthias Lehmann is under no illusions that his side are major underdogs ahead of their trip to the Emirates Stadium, reports talkSPORT. The struggling Bundesliga side, currently bottom without a point to their name, face Arsenal in their opening Europa League group game and are a long short with every bookmaker with the Gunners boasting a 100% record on home soil this season.

Nevertheless, Lehmann isn’t disheartened going into the game as underdogs. He said: “We really look forward to the challenge, it is independent to the Bundesliga. We want to enjoy the game and show passion in the game. We are definitely not the favourite, they have a big squad and top players and there will be other top players who start.
