- Arsene Wenger has something of a defensive crisis on his hands, with Laurent Koscielny suspended and Gabriel Paulista sidelined through injury.
- Shkodran Mustafi is a huge doubt with a suspected concussion having sat out the 3-1 win over Everton at the weekend, while Per Mertesacker is another option have played his first minutes of the season on Sunday.
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs will both be assessed closer to kick off, while Santi Cazorla remains a long-term absentee.
- With the exception of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who is ruled out with a back problem, Antonio Conte has the luxury of a fully fit squad to choose from.
- The Blues boss will likely keep with the same XI that helped the team to the title, though Cesc Fabregas is hoping for a start alongside N’Golo Kante in the middle of the park.
