Today sees two of the Premier League’s bitterest rivals going head-to-head, as Chelsea take on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
The dislike between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger has been well documented with the Frenchman still yet to win a match against the Portuguese coach whilst he has been in charge at Stamford Bridge.
Last season’s 6-0 humbling was particularly tough to take, especially with Mourinho’s show of disrespect in snubbing a post-match handshake in what was in fact Wenger’s milestone 1000th game in charge.
The Gunners boss will be looking for revenge this afternoon, knowing that anything other than three points will put a huge dent to their title hopes by early October.
Arsenal have so far been this seasons draw specialists whilst Chelsea have produced an almost perfect record – with former hero Frank Lampard’s strike at the Etihad Stadium the only blot on what has otherwise been an excellent start.
In anticipation for what is already looking like a huge game in this Premier League season, we have identified the combined Chelsea and Arsenal XI.
