Ozil out of Chelsea v Arsenal, Sanchez and Hazard on bench

Ozil out of Chelsea v Arsenal, Sanchez and Hazard on bench

Chelsea host Arsenal in the first part of Super Sunday today knowing a victory will heap more pressure on Arsene Wenger's shoulders. Despite getting off to a great start in the Europa League on Thursday, securing a 3-1 win over FC Koln, Arsenal's league form has been somewhat lacklustre as they now lie in 13th in the league standings, but it is still early days.

With Alexis Sanchez scoring a controversial opener for Arsenal and Chelsea's Victor Moses sent off for diving, it was a bitter conclusion to an otherwise flawless first season in charge for Conte.

The Gunners were roundly beaten 4-0 at Liverpool before the recent worldwide break and showed none of the commitment, guile or ability that was on show here. For this reason I think it's a massive game for us. I don't understand why they can't fight for the title.

Chelsea - the Premier League champions - have been ticking over nicely since their opening weekend defeat at home to Burnley.
