Chelsea have a great opportunity in midweek to underline their claim for a top four spot and in fact could now finish in 3rd place.
The Blues have been superb since Thomas Tuchel took over at the end of January. They have moved up to 3rd place in the Premier League and are in the final of the Champions League and the final of the FA Cup.
Last weekend Chelsea really put down their marker as they came back from a goal down to beat Manchester City away from home 2-1. It was a great result and it denied City the chance to win the league this past weekend.
Chelsea have won 3 games in a row and at home their last result here ended in a 2-0 victory over Fulham. The Blues have lost 3 times at home so far.
Arsenal bounced back after being knocked out of the Europa League the week before to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-1. That result means that West Brom were relegated from the Premier League.
The Gunners have had a poor season by their standards and come into this game in 9th place but can they have a strong finish? Mikel Arteta’s side have won 2 games in a row and scored 5 goals in that time.
On the road Arsenal are unbeaten in their last five games and their last match was a 2-0 win over Newcastle United.
Chelsea vs Arsenal: Head to Head
- Last season the clubs drew 2-2 in this fixture.
- Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-1 earlier in the season.
- Arsenal haven’t won away to Chelsea in the league since 2011.
- 5 of the last 6 meetings has seen both teams to score.
Chelsea vs Arsenal: Prediction
The form side out of the two is by far Chelsea and Arsenal have a poor record coming here. Still Arsenal will be able to sense possible European football next season if they win their remaining games.
Chelsea proved last week that they have to be taken seriously when they beat Manchester City and it is very hard to look past them. Still with this being a London derby Arsenal are sure to give it a good effort.
This could be much closer than the teams position in the league suggests but at this time it’s very hard to go against Chelsea who just look much better in midfield and attack. Plus of course Chelsea will want to avenge their loss to Arsenal earlier in the season.
