It was an opening day to forget for Arsenal as they were defeated 2-0 by Brentford.

The Gunners, in desperate need of new additions, produced a weak performance at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Arsenal were without a number of key senior players and have since managed to add both Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale to their ranks.

Chelsea continued their strong start to the season with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have also been handed a major boost following the arrival of Romelu Lukaku.

The west London club will be hoping that the Belgian will help them to mount a strong title challenge this season.

Over 3.5 goals – Arsenal’s backline against Brentford looked very shaky, despite the introduction of Ben White.

Meanwhile, Chelsea were rampant against Palace on the opening day, and they will be looking to get at Arsenal on Sunday.

Combined with the arrival of Romelu Lukaku, this could be a high scoring fixture.

Arsenal vs Chelsea: Match preview

Arsenal’s campaign couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start, as the Gunners were defeated 2-0 by Brentford on the opening evening.

The Bees managed to comfortably win their first top-flight match since 1947, as Mikel Arteta’s side produced a feeble display.

Sergi Canos gave the hosts the lead before Christian Nørgaard was able to easily double their advantage with a back-post header.

The north London side have managed to add two new faces following the defeat, with both Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale having been signed.

The Gunners will need Odegaard’s creativity to stand any chance of getting a result on Sunday.

Chelsea kick-started their season with a big 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Trevoh Chalobah stole the show at Stamford Bridge, as the Blues academy product netted his first goal for the club.

Marcos Alonso and Christian Pulisic also scored to help claim all three points.

The west London outfit will now have club-record signing Romelu Lukaku to call upon.

The striker completed a £97M return to the Bridge, and he could even start against the Gunners.

New signings Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale are both available to feature on Sunday.
