Chelsea will welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge for a Premier League clash on Saturday at 16:30 GMT.
Chelsea have won their last two matches in the Premier League, their first consecutive victories in the opening eight matches. They will look to build on this upturn in form when they host Arsenal on Saturday.
Arsenal are unbeaten in the league this season, winning six matches and drawing twice. They sit joint top of the table with Tottenham with 20 points.
Mikel Arteta’s men will look to make it three consecutive wins as they bid to make an early impression on the league table in their pursuit of the title.
Mauricio Pochettino will be without Marcus Bettinelli, Christopher Nkunku, Wesley Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, and Ben Chilwell.
Setbacks for Carney Chukwuemeka and Trevor Chalobah mean that they will not be available for selection on Saturday.
Late tests for Reece James, Cole Palmer, and Armando Broja will be required before determining their fitness to face Arsenal.
Mikel Arteta will be without long-term absentee Jurrien Timber for the trip to Stamford Bridge. The Spanish tactician is sweating over the fitness of Bukayo Saka.
Mauricio Pochettino is expected to select Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caiced as his midfielders, alongside Gallagher, despite the pair playing on Tuesday night and making the long journey back from South America to London.
Bukayo Saka and whether he will be available for the trip to Stamford Bridge is the major team news regarding Arsenal. The Englishman is a vital attacking player for Mikel Arteta and he can hardly afford to play without him because he is vital to their offensive play.
Arsenal will have too much for the hosts; they will win the match and extend their unbeaten start to the season.
