Arsenal shock helped Antonio Conte understand his Chelsea squad

The visiting fans were celebrating when their team took an early lead through Jhon Cordoba's 40-yard strike and maintained it until half-time, but substitute Sead Kolasinac's volley, Alexis Sanchez's superb curler and Bellerin's 82nd-minute goal saw Arsenal to a 3-1 win.

Coverage of Chelsea v Arsenal begins at 12:30pm on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event, followed by Manchester United v Everton.

Conte was at pains to point out both Arsenal's wins came with Chelsea reduced to 10 men.

"If you see their squad you can understand that - they have a lot of top players".

Five arrests were made over the course of the evening and Arsenal issued a statement on Friday insisting the safety of supporters was the main concern at the time as the Premier League club "launched a full review" of the events.

Despite Arsenal's poor start, Conte still views them as title contenders.

"Anything can happen and for this reason we must pay great attention".

Key to Arsenal's success tomorrow (and going forward) will be the ability of Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey to control the pace of the game.

However, Conte - who comes up against Arsenal again on Sunday, almost a year on from that fateful trip to Emirates Stadium - used the setback to implement a change that proved to be the turning point in the club's fortunes.
