Tuchel’s Blues chasing derby double

Chelsea go into this evening hoping to complete their first league double over Arsenal since the 2015-16 season.

The Blues comfortably saw off the Gunners at the Emirates back in August, triumphing 2-0 thanks to a dominant first half display.

Romelu Lukaku opened his Chelsea account – having returned to the club in a £97.5m deal – when tapping in Reece James’ cross within 15 minutes.

And then James got on the scoresheet himself, slamming home Mason Mount’s pass to put the visitors in full control ten minutes before half-time.
