'Business as usual' for Arsenal as Sanchez prepares for Wembley

"Every system needs to improve season by season, year by year".

Chelsea have also signed Antonio Rudiger and Tiemoue Bakayako, but whether they will feature, is a major doubt.

Pedro is likely to operate on the right side of the attack with a protective mask with Willian on the left, whilst Batshuayi could get the nod over summer signing Alvaro Morata, who will need some time to adapt to the formation.

"It was hard because I wanted to play in the final, but I was happy with Per because he was injured all season, but stayed focused and was always professional with his attitude and he was incredible in that game".

"Well, I don't know if it was a sending off or not, but at that moment, we were dominating", Wenger said.

Elneny turned in one of his best performances yet for Arsenal to help Arsene Wenger's side remain in the contest after they fell behind to a Victor Moses goal at the start of the second half.

Victory for Arsene Wenger's men means the Shield has seen the FA Cup winners beat the defending Premier League champions for four consecutive seasons.

With Eden Hazard missing out and Diego Costa not playing, I expect Arsenal to stretch their unbeaten streak at Wembley to eight games.

Premier League champions Chelsea face FA Cup winners Arsenal in the Community Shield- the season's traditional "curtain raiser" at Wembley later today.

"We showed great composure to come back to the game", Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech said, "then it is penalties and who keeps their cool better".

Conte was also treated to familiar questions over whether he was happy with a close season at Chelsea that saw Romelu Lukaku join Manchester United instead of the champion, with Nemanja Matic also moving to Old Trafford.

Arsenal will also be missing two key players in Alexis Sanchez and Shkodran Mustafi after they returned late to training following an extended summer break owing to worldwide commitments. It is very important to have a good physical condition and to understand our idea of football. New signings Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac are expected to be in action yet again as they prepare for their debut season in England.
