Arsenal will go top of the Premier League table – at least temporarily – with a victory at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream is the standout Premier League fixture this weekend — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Chelsea name a front three of Raheem Sterling, Mykhailo Mudryk and Cole Palmer, with Nicolas Jackson on the bench.
Bukayo Saka and William Saliba both start for Arsenal, for whom David Raya continues in goal.
London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal will lock horns for the first time this season in the late Premier League kick-off on Saturday.
The Gunners trail Tottenham in top spot heading into the weekend, but since Spurs are not in action again until Monday, Mikel Arteta's men will climb to the summit of the standings if they win at Stamford Bridge.
The Gunners have won each of their last three visits to Chelsea's home stadium under Arteta – a fourth consecutive triumph would only strengthen the feeling that this could be the season in which Arsenal end their 20-year title drought.
Chelsea will have something to say about that. Back-to-back wins against Fulham and Burnley before the international break suggested that Mauricio Pochettino's side have finally turned a corner.
The Blues have a tricky run of fixtures coming up. This weekend's game marks the start of a run in which they must face seven of last season's top nine in succession. A win here would lift the mood ahead of that daunting run of assignments.

How to watch the Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream wherever you are
The Chelsea vs Arsenal live stream will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?
The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are — meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.
Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, great customer service and excellent device support. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you could check it out without having to sign up long-term.
Speed, security and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. In our testing, we were impressed by its fast connection times and by its ability to access more than 3,000 services in 160 locations across 94 countries. A 30-day money-back guarantee is another bonus.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance, if you're in the U.K. and want to view a U.S. service, you'd select U.S. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to Sling or another service and watch the game.
