Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen believes that Chelsea’s new style will pose problems for the Gunners when the two sides meet tomorrow lunchtime.

The north Londoners are unbeaten so far this campaign while their west London counterparts top the league.

“Chelsea have a lot of good technical players in their side, and I think they’ve changed the style of their game a bit,” Vermaelen said.

“They seem more attack-minded now, with players like Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata all looking dangerous. Fernando Torres is a threat with his movement too.

“That said, they’re still based on the strong foundations that people associate them with - players like John Terry, Ashley Cole and Branislav Ivanovic have a lot of experience and make them very strong at the back.”
