Goalkeeper Ramsdale has joined from Sheffield United and was registered in time to allow him to be part of their squad for the visit of the Blues.

However fellow new signing Martin Odegaard will not be part of the Gunners squad as his paperwork was not processed by the deadline for him to be available for the clash.

The Norwegian spent six months on loan at Arsenal last season, scoring two goals in 20 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners.

Gunners do well against Blues

Mikel Arteta's side got their season off to a disappointing start with a 2-0 defeat away to newly-promoted Brentford on the opening weekend.

However, their recent record against Chelsea is good, they are unbeaten in their last four games in all competitions against the Champions League holders, winning three of them.

Their two new signings join Albert Lokonga, Ben White and Nuno Tavares as this summer's transfers in for the North London club.

During his pre-match press conference Arteta spoke of the positive qualities Ramsdale brings and the effect his signing will have on his squad.

Ramsdale rated by Arteta

"Aaron is a really talented young goalkeeper with huge experience and international experience for England."

"He's going to bring competition, which is what we want to create - healthy competition, quality competition. We needed a goalkeeper there and we ended up with Aaron as the ideal option."
