Arsenal Eyeing PSG Attacker Lucas After Neymar Deal Posted by Daniel Jenkins

"We think it gets more hard every season, because all the other teams get stronger".

Arsene Wenger hailed an "outstanding" Sead Kolasinac after the signing scored in Sunday's Community Shield victory, and said the defender's physicality will make him a ideal fit for the Premier League.

The last time the two sides met in London, in the FA Cup final in May, it was Arsenal who emerged victorious.

The London clubs have had fine pre-season friendlies, where both the clubs clashed once with Chelsea emerging as a 3-0 victor but the real test lies ahead. Yes, the summer of friendlies have now come to an end and real, meaningful matches will soon be here before you know it.

Having played Chelsea a few weeks ago Wenger also shed light on who he thinks could be Chelsea's danger men as he said: "They've replaced Costa with Morata who is maybe less of a goalscorer but can score and provide". It'll get physical and intense, but that's just the way they like it.

In a surprising twist for the Gunners, Alexis Sanchez could feature in the team despite his ongoing transfer saga. Mustafi, though, is likely to miss out, with Rob Holding, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal expected to start in a back-three.

Antonio Conte continues to search for signings in order to strengthen the depth in his squad, which is a worrying sign ahead of the new campaign. But Chelsea have the prize that has eluded the Gunners for 13 years - the Premier League trophy.

The Chelsea boss made his prediction after the club publicly rebuffed "nonsense" claims over exiled striker Diego Costa.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will be without their superstar midfielder Eden Hazard, who hasn't really recovered from broken ankle that he suffered while on worldwide duty with Belgium.

Pedro suffered multiple face fractures in the recent meeting with Arsenal and is a doubt. Tiemoue Bakayoko is ruled out with a knee injury. Chelsea came out comprehensive winners that day, thanks to a strike from Willian and a Michy Batshuayi double.

It's finally here, English football is back this weekend with it's traditional "curtain raiser" - the FA Community Shield.

Arsenal and Chelsea will smell blood.

Only Manchester United (nine times) have been Community Shield runners-up more times than Chelsea and Arsenal (both seven times).

There will be a trial of the "ABBA" system if the match goes to a penalty shootout Sunday. Looking back the high points of our pre-season were the 5-2 win over Benfica last week as well as Alexandre Lacazette scoring a couple of goals. The match will be played at 2pm.

What Arsenal can do is emulate the success PSG had in the French equivalent of the Community Shield, where the club last week beat French champions Monaco in the final.
