And Wenger said his players were less distracted against Chelsea - and might even have won the game if they had not been inhibited by their memories of Anfield.

Midfielder Francis Coquelin is missing with a hamstring strain, while Santi Cazorla is still sidelined.

"I think we were close to winning this game".

"Arsenal are a big rival".

The Blues, however, missed out on a domestic double last term when they were beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.

Arsene Wenger's side will travel to Stamford Bridge on Sunday looking for their first victory at the stadium since October 2011, and Conte is expecting a hard test against his London rivals. Arsenal are down in 11th, with two wins and two defeats from their opening four games and that could have been a lot worse had they not recovered in the final few minutes against Leicester on the opening day. "We were unlucky, if you remember the first goal it was very unusual", Conte said of the Cup final.

Midfield: It will be interesting to see whether Davide Zappacosta keeps his place after scoring in Europe on Tuesday night but I think Conte will go with Victor Moses in the right wing-back position.


"But Arsenal can adopt Manchester United's attitude to the Europa League last season".

But with the summer window now done with, Sanchez will likely want to get back to his best in a hurrywhether he intends to sign a new and improved deal with the Gunners or earn a transfer in 2018.

Arsenal have won their last two matches in all competitions, but the pressure remains on Arsene Wenger's side following an indifferent start to the season. The Blues won February's league game easily.

Premier League club Arsenal blamed the selling of tickets by touts for the crowd problems at their Europa League game against German side FC Cologne as UEFA began disciplinary proceedings on Friday. They have lost only one player, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, and they have kept all of their players.

However, this season as we head into the first meeting between these two, we have a slightly different picture.

Speaking after the match Arsene Wenger said: 'They (Cologne fans) were very clever.

Probability of away win: 19%.
