So, here we are. The Premier League is - essentially - back. And like someone who continously gets surprised by the idea of being on time to an appointment, these two clubs are leaving the serious business until it is too late. Arsenal need another central midfielder, someone to replace Alexis Sanchez, and a defender. Chelsea need a central defender, a midfielder and a striker. They are worse at procrastinating than a sub-standard football blogger.

The Chels have no new names in their starting line up, though it is a touch unfamiliar. Batshuayi starts up front with Costa likely to live under a cloud any day now. New signings Caballero, Rudiger and Morata are on the bench.

13:25 

For Arsenal, there's a new signing! Alexandre Lacazette starts up front. The most interesting news, though, is that Arsene Wenger has retained the 3-4-3 system that he finished the season with. Holding, Mertesacker and Monreal span the age groups at the back.
