"It is going to be interesting". Mark Lawrenson states his prediction for Arsenal vs Chelsea

  Arsenal will host Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday. The Gunners suffered a defeat in their first game of the season against Brentford, meanwhile, the Blues celebrated a victory over Crystal Palace. Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction. "It is going to be interesting to see how Chelsea's new £97.5m striker Romelu Lukaku fits into their side, and whether Arsenal can stop him. "Mikel Arteta has not taken charge of many Gunners games in front of a full stadium and, the last time he did, he wasn't under the same pressure he is facing now. "We don't know which strikers Arteta has available, but I think he will be cautious anyway rather than trying to have a real go at Chelsea. "What he doesn't need in his situation is to lose two consecutive matches, especially to two London clubs, which I always think makes it worse." Lawrenson's prediction: 1-1   source - BBC / Join us on Telegram!/ Follow us on Twitter!
