Pre-season preparations continue for two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs on Sunday afternoon as Arsenal and Chelsea meet at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners and the Blues are part of the Mind Series alongside Tottenham Hotspur, playing each other in a pre-season tournament with funds raised going to mental health charity Mind, and the club’s foundations.
With Covid making international travel difficult, and a risk largely not worth taking for clubs, the London clubs are staying local and taking on their Premier League rivals in pre-season.
Arsenal have been busy over the summer, with a couple of friendlies in Scotland against Hibs and Rangers then two behind closed doors against Millwall and Watford.
Chelsea have been quieter, beating Bournemouth earlier this week.
When is Arsenal vs Chelsea?
Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates at 3pm on Sunday 1 August, with a near-capacity crowd expected in north London.
What TV channel is Arsenal vs Chelsea on and is there a live stream?
While not being shown on TV, you can stream the match on Arsenal’s official website (costing £4), Chelsea’s official website or on their 5th Stand app.
Arsenal vs Chelsea team news
Ben White has completed his move to Arsenal from Brighton and has already trained with his new teammates, but he is unlikely to start on Sunday.
However, Gunners fans will get to see other new signings Nuno Tavares and Sambi Lokonga who have already featured in pre-season and are likely to again this weekend.
Chelsea were without any players that played at Euro 2020 in their win over Bournemouth earlier in the week, but the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and N’Golo Kante are all back at the club now after their breaks.
