Chelsea will face up with Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium as hostility returns in London this weekend.
The meetings present another moment for some of the best players in the Premier League to assemble themselves in a 90 minutes contest as both London sides square up with each other.
Arsenal would look to make amends with a win when they play Chelsea after losing to Brentford City on the opening day of the Premier League season.
With match expectation brewing already of the match, we evaluate the key things to look forward to as Arsenal clashes with Chelsea this weekend.
Romelu Lukaku’s Possible Debut
The Chelsea new signing Romelu Lukaku should be on show as he's expected to play a part in this one.
He could be saddled with the task to lead Chelsea’s charge for goals as the strike duo of Tammy Abraham (AS Roma) and Olivier Giroud (AC Milan) has left the club to join Serie A sides in the ongoing transfer window.
Lukaku’s debut would be what many people would be looking forward to in this derby as he gets set to start a new course at Chelsea football club.
Managerial tactical approach
Both teams would go toe to toe in terms of the quality of players to be presented on the pitch by their respective managers.
But Thomas Tuchel and Mikel Arteta have a lot to prove especially the young Spaniard (Arteta) who his side unceremoniously lost 2-0 last week to the less fancied Brentford City side.
Arteta is really under pressure at the moment and it’s enticing to see how he set up his Arsenal team when they come up against Thomas Tuchel tactically galvanized his side for the contest.
Measure of rivalry
It’s always a tug of war when both EPL sides set up against each other. As Chelsea travel to the Emirate Stadium to face Arsenal we are certain to see the rivalry that exists between both sides.
As London superiority is at stake, both teams would aim to topple each other in the game.
Chelsea would exert physical pressure on their London rivals while a couple of rash challenges could be expected from the host to make up for their varying interest in the course of the match.
