To have this type of patience for him is paying off. He's very close to be totally fit.

But for Arsenal, Antonio Conte would have won two more trophies.

The 19-year-old joined Chelsea at a young age from Southampton's academy, and has gone from strength to strength since progressing through the youth ranks with the Blues.

They usually depart aggrieved.

Arsenal played their Europa League tie on Thursday, giving Chelsea a potential advantage as they have been able to rest since their fixture on Tuesday.

"I hope to finish the game with 11 players - in the last two games, the FA Cup final and the Community Shield, we finished with 10 men - then during the game the best team will win", Conte told reporters on Friday.

In contrast, Arsenal have endured a rocky period as a loss at Stoke was followed by a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Liverpool. They may have only delayed inquests into their troubles.

Chelsea's match with Arsenal is on Sunday near where the attack happened and the club have urged fans to arrive early to the match as security will be heightened for the Premier League clash.

A common denominator has been the absence of their premier match-winners. "In their squad there are many top players".

But who were the most popular picks? For sure Arsenal is a big rival for the title.

Arsenal have other issues.

With Alexis Sanchez scoring a controversial opener for Arsenal and Chelsea's Victor Moses sent off for diving, it was a bitter conclusion to an otherwise perfect first season in charge for Conte.

Yet Arsenal were ragged at Anfield and required a half-time formation change to beat Cologne.

"Arsenal is one of the top six teams in England". They kept all the players from last season.
