For the first time in two decades, the London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal will have new managers in both dugouts, Maurizio Sarri and Unai Emery.
Kevin De Bruyne is expected to be sidelined for an unspecified number of weeks. Can his absence affect Manchester City’s free-flowing brand of football? On the evidence of what we saw last week, not that we think.
