The upcoming week would see Arsenal having a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. The Gunners, who are under a transition period following Wenger’s departure, are having a nightmare start to the season. Unai Emery’s men’s confidence looked shaken against City and a trip to Chelsea might hamper it furthermore.

To conclude, a season full of madness has begun just in the right way. Way to go English Premier League.
