Chelsea goalkeeper Thiabut Courtois is hoping his team will face an Arsenal side lacking star man Alexis Sanchez in Sunday's Community Shield final.

The reigning Premier League champions will meet the FA Cup holders at Wembley with the season's first piece of silverware up for grabs.

Arsenal's preparations for the clash have been interrupted by continued speculation that Sanchez is headed to the exit door with the Chilean, who is due to return to training on Tuesday following illness, strongly linked to both Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.
