Arsenal's Elneny: Our goal is to win the Europa League

Arsenal's Elneny: Our goal is to win the Europa League

After a humiliating 4-0 defeat at Anfield last month, Arsene Wenger took to the press to inform about Arsenal's preparation ahead of the game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

They followed that up with a positive 3-1 win over Bundesliga side Cologne on Thursday. Since then, Arsenal have lost five straight Premier League matches at the Bridge, with an aggregate score of 15-2, including a 6-0 annihilation in 2014. With Alexis Sanchez scoring a controversial opener for Arsenal and Chelsea's Victor Moses sent off for diving, it was a bitter conclusion to an otherwise ideal first season in charge for Conte.

"For sure when you start the game, you try to keep always the right discipline".

On current form, it's hard to argue with any of Merson's selections.

The former Manchester United defender also hit the headlines after his commentary of this fixture last season, speaking after the Gunners' 3-1 defeat at the Bridge, Neville said this about Arsene Wenger's squad: "Not strong enough, not resilient enough, not powerful enough and not good enough". Two of those were the extra time afforded for preparation and training, while our Premier League title rivals were busy jetting around the continent.

That is despite the fact that Arsenal have won three of the last four meetings, including last season's FA Cup final and the Community Shield.

Midfield playmaker Eden Hazard, who has scored in three of his last four home league games against Arsenal, is fully healthy again and could feature against the Gunners.

But the Gunners denied Conte the double by winning May's FA Cup final and then won the Community Shield at the Premier League champions' expense, albeit on a shootout. Bellerin is aware of Arsenal's poor record at Chelsea's home and has warned his teammates it would not be an easy task to walk away from west London with three points.

The Gunners' last win at Stamford Bridge came nearly six years ago. "Following last night's UEFA Europa League match with Cologne we would like to stress that fan safety was always our paramount concern and informed all decisions made", said the club.

The 26-year-old Belgium worldwide, recovering from an ankle surgery, appeared as a substitute in Chelsea's last two games, victories over Leicester City and Qarabag of Azerbaijan. Antonio Conte is set to make rotational changes to his side, having rested a few players in their game against FK Qarabag. "Don't forget Alvaro is very young, I think he can improve a lot".
