Werner and Barkley are both struggling with hamstring issues, while Azpilicueta was hurt in a collision with goalkeeper Edouard Mendy in training. Kepa has a minor knock that is causing him slight pain in his movements, according to head coach Thomas Tuchel.

Kalidou Koulibaly wasn't ready to make his debut against Charlotte, but Tuchel will be keen to get him involved here.

Chelsea pre-season squad: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli, Edouard Mendy, Teddy Sharman-Lowe, Marcos Alonso, Ethan Ampadu, Cesar Azpilicueta, Trevoh Chalobah, Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill, Reece James, Kenedy, Emerson Palmieri, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva, Ross Barkley, Conor Gallagher, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Michy Batshuayi, Kai Havertz, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly.

Arsenal vs Chelsea score prediction

It's very early days of course, but this promises to be an intriguing encounter between two London rivals out in Florida.

Chelsea are yet to click - especially in an attacking sense - so far in pre-season, while Arsenal have looked in fine fettle after an early scare against Nurnberg in their pre-season opener. New signing Gabriel Jesus has looked particularly impressive.

It's difficult to call at such an early stage in each side's preparations, but based on form Arsenal will likely snatch the early bragging rights.

Score prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Chelsea
