Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea have got three points on the board already thanks to their 3-0 win over Huddersfield while Arsenal are point-less following defeat to Manchester City.

Arsenal signed Leno from Leverkusen this summer but new head coach Unai Emery still opted to start Cech against City in their season-opening Premier League game.

"I am very happy with his performance", the Spaniard said.

'He is okay, the first match against City he played 15 to 20 minutes and I think this is good, I want to continue with him improving and to be okay to play'.

"He is being evaluated by team doctors as part of the concussion protocol", Tomlin said . This is the first time since 2015 that Roethlisberger entered concussion protocol.

"For Saturday, the decision for me is easy". He has experience, he has quality, he has the capacity.

After taking over from Arsene Wenger, Emery has emphasised the importance of using the goalkeeper to help play the ball out from the back, and it was clear that his players are still getting used to the new system.

Cech, 36, insisted he is comfortable with a new style of play under Emery which places an emphasis on playing out from the back. Whether we can do one midfielder more either more attacking or more defensive, it depends'. He said: "Nacho has started training with the group, so maybe he can come in for the next match". "I want us to do well with our thinking and our mentality".

Right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner replaced Maitland-Niles at the weekend and Emery has said the Switzerland global is an option to fill-in against Chelsea on Saturday.

Experienced Swiss worldwide Lichtsteiner is a right-back by trade and Emery is hopeful Monreal will be fit to face Chelsea after returning to training this week.

"We want a good preparation before and a good response on the pitch to that preparation".

Arsenal still have issues at left-back heading into the game, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles ruled out for up to eight weeks after fracturing his leg against Man City when filling in in that role.
