The Blues have signed Jorginho from Napoli in this summer transfer window and this is their only major signing in this summer. The club management of the Blues have also appointed Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.

Team News :
Arsenal will have the full squad in their hand to play in this match. The Gunners will have their all star players to play in this match. Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Aaron Ramsey, Petr Cech, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos all will be present in the match day squad of the Gunners in this match. The Gunners have drawn the first match of International Champions Cup few days ago with a scoreline of 1-1. The match was ended with Atletico Madrid in the winning side in the penalties.
The Blues will not have the full squad in his hand as the Belgian trio Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi have not returned still from the vacation. Probably they will not be available in the Community Shield match against Manchester City too. N’Golo Kante is also not present here as he has won the World Cup recently for the French National side few days ago. This will be a test for Alvaro Morata to prove his quality as the star players are absent in this match. If he can do so, then great, else he will be sold in the current transfer window.
