The shadow of Friday's terror attacks in the London Tube looms large when Chelsea host arch-rivals Arsenal in a crunch Premier League tie at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The defeat prompted stern criticism from pundits and former Gunners.

The West London side now occupy the third spot in the table with nine points from their opening game.

However, they couldn't record back-to-back wins, as they fell to a 1-0 defeat on the road at Stoke City.

Both teams endured troubled summers and hard starts to the season but after four straight wins it feels like Chelsea head into this match with more confidence and momentum, despite Arsenal's impressive comeback victory over Cologne on Thursday. But I think now he's a complete player - he's a top player with the ball, without the ball. Goals from Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle and Eden Hazard gave the Blues an impressive start in the first half coupled with the wrongful sending off of Kieran Gibbs.

"That was missing from the last few games".

Playing with three at the back against Chelsea has worked well for us recently as we beat them on F.A. Cup final day and at the Community Shield employing that system and looking to replicate those performances tomorrow it wouldn't be too much of a surprise to see us go for that.

The North London side have conceded at least two goals in each of their last eight trips to West London.

But the Italian stayed strong in his convictions and switched to a 3-4-3 formation which prompted a 13-game winning run in the Premier League title success.

Cologne insist they, along with Arsenal, urged fans to purchase tickets only through official channels, and although the club believe the match going ahead was the correct decision, they questioned the security measures in place.

Like Costa, England midfielder Danny Drinkwater will not be involved against Arsenal, with his debut delayed until October by a calf injury. When you play against Arsenal it is always a massive game. Francis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla are still out for the Gunners.

"In both situations I think you have to see very well if there was the red card or not", Conte said.

Arsenal are 7/2 for the away win, and the draw is 3/1.

Everton have been disappointing so far this season, They signed a lot of players at the start of the season, but got ripped apart by Tottenham last week and weren't much better at Stamford Bridge before that.

LT: Well, one of those games was a glorified friendly and neither were at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal won the match 3-1 after falling behind to a long-range strike from Jhon Cordoba before bouncing back in the second half.

With that in mind I have checked out the English Premier League bets from Betfair again, and I like the price of 2.58 on their being more than 3.5 goals in the game. Our pick is available at the best odds of 4/6 at betfair.
