Martin Keown has tipped Chelsea FC to beat Arsenal in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The Blues lost 2-0 to defending Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield to raise concerns about Chelsea FC under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

However, the west London side were 3-0 winners against Huddersfield Town in their opening Premier League fixture of the 2018-19 season to secure second spot.

World Cup winner N’Golo Kante broke the deadlock before summer signing Jorginho and former FC Barcelona winger Pedro Rodriguez sealed three points for the Blues.

Arsenal, meanwhile, suffered a 2-0 loss to title holders Manchester City to make a disappointing start to Unai Emery’s reign after the Spanish head coach replaced Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners will make the short trip across the English capital to take on Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Former Arsenal star Keown believes Chelsea FC will ease to a narrow 1-0 win over the Gunners in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

The north London side haven’t won the Premier League title since 2003-04.

Arsenal finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League place in successive seasons.

The Gunners signed five players in the summer transfer window to revamp their squad under Emery following his appointment back in May.
