 Match Preview


๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿค› Head to head
Looking over their most recent head to head clashes dating back to 29/12/2019 tells us that Chelsea have won 2 of these & Arsenal 3, with the tally of draws being 1.
17 goals were scored between the two sides during those clashes, with 8 for The Blues and 9 coming from The Gunners. That is an average goals per game value of 2.83.

๐Ÿ“‹ Team News: Chelsea

Regarding absentees, there’s just one fitness concern for the Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Ben Chilwell (Ruptured cruciate ligament) is out of contention.
It looks as if The Blues will possibly kick off with a 3-4-2-1 system for this one and select Edouard Mendy, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Antonio Ruediger, Reece James, N'Golo Kante, Jorginho, Marcos Alonso, Mason Mount, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

๐Ÿ—ž️ Team News: Arsenal

Due to a mostly healthy group of players, there’s only the one fitness issue for the Arsenal gaffer Mikel Arteta to be concerned about. Kieran Tierney (Knee Surgery) won’t be playing here.
There’s a good chance that The Gunners might play in a 3-4-2-1 formation, giving starts to Aaron Ramsdale, Ben White, Rob Holding, Gabriel, Cedric Soares, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, Martin Oedegaard, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli.

๐Ÿง  Prediction

Our feeling is that Arsenal have it within them to breach the defence of this Chelsea lineup, but that might not prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.

We are anticipating a close game with a 2-1 win for Chelsea when all is said and done. Looking forward to seeing how this one unfolds.
