Chelsea boss brutal when asked about thoughts on Wenger and Arsenal

Hazard underwent ankle surgery during the summer, but has made two appearances from the bench for the Blues this season - suggesting he is nearing his first start.

Up top, Alexis Sanchez is just Arsenal's second player to feature in the team, forming an attacking trio with Chelsea's Alvaro Morata and Eden Hazard.

They responded to their opening-day defeat by Burnley by beating three of the division's potential top-eight finishers, in Tottenham, Everton and Leicester.

The Blues will have had more than 48 hours additional rest over the Gunners, who beat Cologne in the Europa League on Thursday night.

If not, it could be another long afternoon for Arsene Wenger's side at Chelsea. "It's not an advantage [to have played on Tuesday]". The midfield pair were key in the Foxes' 2015-16 surprise title win.

"I'd like to say that all our thoughts are for the people affected in the incident on the tube [London Underground]", Conte said at the start of the press conference on Friday. "When you play against Arsenal it is always a massive game".

"I hope to finish the game with 11 players because in the last two games (FA Cup final and Community Shield) we finished with 10 men". We have to try to think only to play the game. A lot of time it's very difficult to understand why. Why? "Anything can happen and we must pay great attention and play a great game against a rival".

"Don't forget I have to make the best decision for the team, for the players".

"He has a muscular problem in his calf and I think it is very difficult to see him before the international break".

At right wing-back, Davide Zappacosta's outstanding debut against Qarabag (which yielded a spectacular goal) gives the Italy international a serious claim to take Victor Moses' regular position. He needs time to recover. He will wear the number 36 shirt, and will be itching to get involved with the first-team squad's matchday preparations should the opportunity arise.

"For this reason, I think it's a massive game for us".

Arsenal have lost both away fixtures this season but Conte also insists they are one of six teams who could win the title this season. I don't understand why they can't fight for the title.
