Arsenal's second match of the season comes away to Chelsea this afternoon.

The Arsenal centre-forward failed to get on the score sheet in a 2-0 loss to defending Premier League champions Manchester City last weekend.

Emery faces a quandary when it comes to making the most of his attacking options as he has two two strikers in Lacazette and Aubameyang and two quality playmakers in Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

The biggest headache for Virat Kohli to sort out the top order woes and he will have to juggle a bit with his batting options. But it still needed a robust effort from two of the side's senior batsmen to restore the dressing room's confidence.

The Spanish coach says Ozil, like all his players, needs to track back and do his bit to help defend when the team doesn't have the ball and has also called on the German ace to be more demanding and decisive in attack.

Comment below with your tactical suggestions! Every player needs this commitment to do the two moments. "Each match is a different possibility".

However, Illawarra Rural Fire Service district officer, Brad Collins said the fire crews are now "starting to get the upper hand". Queensland Fire and Emergency Services has issued a fire ban through to Monday for parts of south east Queensland.

Emery's predecessor, Arsene Wenger, rarely played both Lacazette and Aubameyang together in the same side last season as he often erred on the side of caution despite their hugely impressive statistics when playing in the same team together. Still, they haven't beaten us in 90 minutes in the six various games we have played in the past year, and we have kept a clean sheet on our last two visits, so don't give up hope! "But if we start with Bernd, I believe in him also".

"For Saturday, the decision for me is easy, because we'll continue to start the match with Petr Cech". "There are defensive moments and attacking moments. I want to look at every player together, how to get Aubameyang and Lacazette scoring more goals, whether as one or together". The positioning, [Ozil] is playing all his career like a 10, like a right winger going inside to receive the ball.

Granit Xhaka was poor in the first 45, so much so that Emery chose to give him the hook in favour of Lucas Torreira.

Any significant lay-off would come as a serious blow to City's hopes of successfully defending the Premier League title. We cope with it fine. "If you explain what you are thinking then there is no problem".

On whether Mesut Ozil can be a central part of his system... "I want that from every player".
