Sergio Canos opened the scoring, before Christian Norgaard doubled the lead, heading home from a long throw in.
Chelsea eased past Crystal Palace in their opener, winning 3-0 at Stamford Bridge despite not having many first team players available.
Marcos Alonso opened the scoring with a superb free-kick, with Christian Pulisic and Trevor Chalobah adding further goals.
Arsenal have a surprisingly good recent record against the Blues, winning both meetings last term, including a superb 3-1 win at the Emirates.
Emile Smith-Rowe scored the only goal at Stamford Bridge in the most recent meeting, seizing upon an error from Jorginho.
