Graham Potter has now tasted defeat in charge of the club he took over in September and, while his team got back on track in midweek, the visit of Mikel Arteta’s League leaders is cause for concern.
Arsenal have steadily improved their record at Stamford Bridge over recent meetings and have proven they can beat the League’s biggest teams already this season. Having seen just how easily Chelsea were torn apart against Brighton, the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka must be licking their lips.
It’s also difficult to ignore Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Forced out of Arsenal by Arteta, the former Gunners captain will likely lead the line for the home side, squaring off against his former employers for the first time since his acrimonious departure.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The Premier League game is scheduled for a 12pm GMT kick-off time today, Sunday November 6, 2022.
Stamford Bridge in London will host.
