Arsenal v Chelsea: match preview

Mikel Arteta takes charge of Arsenal at home for the first time and will be keen to start rejuvenating the Emirates atmosphere. That may depend on which version of Chelsea turn up – the swashbuckling side who outclassed Tottenham, or the team who have lost at home to Southampton, Bournemouth and West Ham in recent weeks. Arsenal, who could start the game as low as 13th in the table, will hope it is the latter. Niall McVeigh
