A player-by-player comparison of Arsenal and Chelsea’s best XIs.
With Arsenal tipped to be more serious title challengers this season, here’s a look at how their best lineup matches Chelsea’s…
GK: Petr Cech vs Thibaut Courtois
The new Arsenal goalkeeper is a great signing, but Petr Cech is unfortunately still behind Thibaut Courtois in this battle, as he was in his final season at Chelsea.
DR: Hector Bellerin vs Branislav Ivanovic
One is a superb young player with a bright future, but one is currently one of the best right-backs in the world and a serial winner for the Blues.
DL: Nacho Monreal vs Cesar Azpilicueta
Two solid Spanish left-backs, but there’s no doubt it’s the Chelsea man who once again wins this battle, having shown himself to be rock solid at the back.
