Background: Chelsea top the table with 13 points, and Arsenal are fifth with nine. Both teams are still unbeaten. Chelsea's last win at the Emirates came in November 2009.
The Skinny: The breaking news is that Chelsea captain and defender John Terry has been banned four matches and fined £220,000 for racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during a match last year (via BBC Sport). A British court found Terry not guilty in the incident earlier this year (via The Guardian).
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is close to returning after missing 14 months through injury, but the 20-year-old's first match back will probably be Monday for Arsenal's Under-21 team (via The Guardian).
Arsenal's suddenly stingy defense has allowed only two goals this season, and both resulted directly from an error by a keeper. And after struggling to score early, the Gunners have knocked in six goals in two of their last four matches (one in the Premier League and one in the Capital One Cup).
Though Terry will miss out (UPDATE: Or maybe he will play), Chelsea still have oodles of talent in the ranks, from new signings Eden Hazard and Oscar to defensive "veterans" like Gary Cahill and David Luiz. Like Arsenal, Chelsea have allowed only two goals and scored nine.
If Chelsea win, they'll cement their status as the team to beat early in the season. If Arsenal win, they will have to be considered genuine contenders (even though some people already think they are).
In other words, this one should be tasty.
