Arsenal v Chelsea squad BATTLE: Is Gunners’ best XI now strong enough to match Blues in title race?

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.

Vote: Courtois

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.

Vote: Ivanovic

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.

Vote: Azpilicueta
