Team News:

Former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is likely to start for Arsenal, but Alexis Sanchez will not feature following an extended post-Copa America break.

Chelsea could hand a start to new signing Radamel Falcao, who has joined the club on a season-long loan.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed that defender Gary Cahill (nose) and striker Diego Costa (hamstring) and are both fit.

What they’ve said ahead of kick-off:

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger (on Mesut Ozil)“What I think is that he shows more authority to dictate the game than before. He is physically stronger, that is for sure, more equipped to deal with the Premier League and in the second part of the season last year, we have seen that intelligence of his passing.

“The fact that he added some steel to his game, that was needed, certainly in the Premier League, and I am confident he can be one of the great players of 2015/16.

“I want more goals from him because he plays in that position and he is a good finisher. But he does not take enough chances when he is in the position when he can finish.”

Chelsea captain John Terry (on Radamel Falcao): “I could tell pretty much straightaway how good he was and how difficult he was to mark. Literally after two minutes he was backing in. He did the same to Gary Cahill. We had a little tussle on the floor 10 to 15 minutes later.

“He was up for it, was hungry, his movement and first touch were both excellent. You get that feeling as well. You can tell after a couple of minutes – it’s ‘I’ll give a bit and he’ll give a bit.’ I just thought he was up for it that day and Gary felt the same.

“For me, Falcao and Tottenham’s Harry Kane were the best players I came up against last season. So we are delighted to have Radamel here now because he’s a top, top player.”
