[Confirmed Line-Ups] Chelsea vs Arsenal: Hazard & Ramsey Both Benched

The Gunners travel to Chelsea this evening on the back of a 2-0 home defeat to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in Emery's first game in charge.

Eden Hazard has admitted that he is desperate to secure start his first Premier League game of the new season following Chelsea FC's 3-2 win over Arsenal on Saturday evening.

Arsenal stormed back and were level by half-time courtesy of goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi.

Both Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri and Arsenal's Unai Emery are in their first seasons with their respective clubs, and while the Blues have won their first two matches, the Gunners have lost theirs.

The Belgium playmaker could make his first start of the season in tonight's Premier League clash with Arsenal and will be expected to do well after a strong showing at the World Cup.

One of the world's best strikers, Harry Kane showed at the World Cup when winning the Golden Boot that he is a master in front of goal, but the Tottenham Hotspur striker has a real problem scoring goals in August, but the England worldwide will be eager to shine for Spurs against Fulham at 3pm. "We had a lot of meetings and the boss told me what he thinks he sees as very positive in my game and what I can work on".

Paul Scholes Slams Paul Pogba Amid Rumours Of Manchester United Rift
Pogba was handed the responsibility in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Leicester City in their league opener last Friday. He said: "They are a team - with the quality they have in the squad - that you very much expect to be up there again".

"The other 15 minutes it was better to smoke, I think". I think one of the most important clubs in Europe can not sell an important player without the possibility of buying a player on the same level.

"Overall we were much better and deserved the three points, but we still need to improve". But also they had options, chances to score and effectivity (sic) is the difference.

Emery opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation against City but has hinted his preferred system could change as the season progresses. The 22-year-old drove into the Chelsea box and square played to his teammate who finished with his left foot making up for his earlier miss.

"I am happy with Mesut", Emery said in his post-match press conference.

Meanwhile, Sarri once again had to answer questions about Eden Hazard, who has two years remaining on his Chelsea contract and has been continually linked with a move to Real Madrid.

"Yeah, we need him to help with his quality, and also I want to push him to be competitive every match", Emery said.
