Chelsea vs. Arsenal: Team News and Lineup, Kick-off Time, Streaming/Channel to Watch
Arsenal face a huge test when they return to Premier League play on October 21 when they travel to Chelsea.
Mikel Arteta finally got his first Premier League win over Pep Guardiola and Manchester City before the international break, and he’ll be hoping to keep that momentum going at Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal trail leaders Tottenham by goals scored ahead of this match, but Chelsea are improving, having won consecutive Premier League games for the first time since Mauricio Pochettino took over in the summer. With a difficult run of games ahead, the Blues will be hoping to gain some momentum and undermine Arsenal’s championship challenge.
Injuries continue to be a major issue for both managers, and a number of key players will face late fitness tests before of this match.

Chelsea vs Arsenal lineups
Arteta and Pochettino will evaluate their squad possibilities when players return from international duty at various intervals before of this match.
Chelsea still has a number of key players out injured, including Christopher Nkunku, Romeo Lavia, and Ben Chilwell, with Arteta expected to make a late decision on vital winger Bukayo Saka.
The starting lineups for both sides before of their Premier League encounter at Stamford Bridge on October 21 are shown below.
Chelsea starting 11
(4-3-3): Sanchez (GK) — Gusto, Silva, Disasi, Colwill — Fernandez, Caicedo, Gallagher — Sterling, Jackson, Mudryk
- Injured: Fofana, Nkunku, Lavia, Chilwell, Bettinelli, Chalobah, James, Broja, Chukwuemeka
- Suspended: None
Arteta will not make many changes to the team that defeated Manchester City, but injuries may force him to alter his plans.
Bukayo Saka is likely to return after missing England service due to injury, although William Saliba and Leandro Trossard remain farther behind.
All three will be decided before kickoff, although Arteta will be wary of hurrying Saliba back following his injury issues last season. The Arsenal boss stated that he will make his team selection following their last training session.
