Rudiger & Batshuayi starts, Alonso benched in probable Chelsea 3-4-3 line-up against Arsenal

Chelsea will be aiming to avoid another defeat when they take on Arsenal in the Community Shield at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The Premier League champions lost 1-2 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final at the Stadium last season, denying Antonio Conte a double in his first season in England.

The two sides have twice in the Community Shield in 2005 and 2015 with each claiming a win. However, both clubs will be hoping to kick start the me season with a silverware.

Chelsea have had a mixed summer, though they have signed four players they missed out on some of their top targets but Conte will be hoping for a win before they start their Premier League title defence against Burnley on August 12.
