Arsenal's home form has been impeccable this season but they have not been especially convincing in recent weeks and they have various injuries. Chelsea are in excellent form and will make the short trip to the Emirates full of confidence that they can take the points and they are the pick here.

Last season at the Emirates it was Arsenal who came out on top thanks to a 3-0 win, but it was Chelsea that would have the last laugh as this defeat was the catalyst for a change of defensive system by Antonio Conte and one that played a massive part in them winning the Premier League last season.
