The Belgium international is being brought back into the fold after his World Cup exploits and has often excelled in meetings between these sides

Given the amount of attacking talent on show when Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, the goalscorer markets could be a popular option for punters.

Alvaro Morata is a 6/5 (2.20) shot to get on the scoresheet at any point and 4/1 (5.0) joint favourite - alongside Olivier Giroud - to open the scoring.

The Spain international has struggled at times since his move to London and there certainly look more enticing opportunities elsewhere.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is 8/5 (2.60) to score having led the line against Manchester City last time out but Alexandre Lacazette impressed from the substitutes bench.

The Frenchman is available at 9/4 (3.25) to score anytime but team news will be crucial before getting involved in markets relating to the 27-year-old.

The best bet though, looks to be backing Eden Hazard to open his account for the Premier League campaign at 6/4 (2.50) with William Hill.

Having been heavily involved throughout the World Cup, the Belgium international made a late cameo against Huddersfield Town last weekend but has often been particularly influential against Arsenal in recent meetings.

In the last six competitive head-to-head matches between the pair, Hazard has scored three times, including a vital goal in the League Cup semi-final in January.

Given that he should be a danger from open play, set pieces and take over the penalty duties from Jorginho, that 6/4 (2.50) makes plenty of appeal for punters if the playmaker is named in the starting line-up.

N'Golo Kante opened the scoring in Chelsea's previous game and the France international is available at 17/2 (8.50) to find the net for a second consecutive game.

The best bet though, is the 6/4 (2.50) available on Hazard to find the net and continue his impressive recent form against a Gunners side who are missing several key defenders ahead of their trip to Stamford Bridge.
