Chelsea and Arsenal are set to face off in the Premier League this weekend.
On Saturday evening, Arsenal will travel to Stamford Bridge as they look to further deepen Chelsea’s early season woes.
The Gunners’ confidence is at an all-time high after winning 1-0 against Manchester City last time out.
Chelsea meanwhile, have had a poor start under new boss Mauricio Pochettino after collecting just 11 points from their opening eight matches.
The Blues are already nine points adrift of Arsenal and this weekend’s clash is a must-win for Chelsea if they are to challenge towards the top of the Premier League this season.
Ahead of the match, we have decided to make a combined XI containing players from both teams.
Goalkeeper – David Raya
After replacing Aaron Ramsdale, Raya has looked largely comfortable in the Gunners goal and gets the nod ahead of Chelsea’s Robert Sanchez.
Right Back – Reece James
Although unfit for this weekend, James is one of the finest full-backs in the country when firing on all cylinders.
Centre Backs – William Saliba, Levi Colwill
Saliba is without doubt one of the best defenders in world football, whilst Colwill gets in ahead of Gabriel.
Left Back – Oleksandr Zinchenko
A tough choice between Zinchenko and Ben Chilwell but the Ukrainian edges it.
Midfield – Martin Odegaard, Declan Rice, Enzo Fernandez
The midfield trio picked themselves, Rice has transformed Arsenal whilst Odegaard has been influential. Fernandez gets in ahead of the likes of Kai Havertz and Fabio Vieira.
Attack – Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli
Raheem Sterling was close to being included but was just edged out by Saka and Martinelli as they continue to impress under Mikel Arteta……CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
