Chelsea suffered an opening day defeat against Burnley but have bounced back to win their last three games in the league, as well kicking off their Champions League campaign with an emphatic 6-0 win over FK Qarabag.

Gary Neville backed Chelsea to "bulldoze" Arsenal after Arsene Wenger's starting line-up for the clash at Stamford Bridge was confirmed. "In their squad there are many top players", he told reporters. "I think it's very hard to see him before the worldwide break (early in October)", Conte on Friday told a press conference ahead of Sunday's English Premier League (EPL) match against Arsenal.

"I remember very well that game". It's the same when you play against (Manchester) City, against Liverpool, (Manchester) United, Tottenham.

"When you are a football player there's only one thing that matters and that's the next game and how you respond, and that's what we did". We have to fight. Opta Stats Arsenal have lost their last five away Premier League games versus Chelsea, their joint-longest away losing run in the competition against a single opponent. I'm pleased for the commitment, for the performance of my players.

Wenger's side have no margin for error as they try to keep up with the early pace-setters in the title race and Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker admits it's essential Sanchez rediscovers his best form.

Following a pre-season friendly in China, this was another level London derby between the two sides as Chelsea finished with 10 men and here, Press Association Sport looks at how the opposing managers fared.
