Chelsea on the hand, will be aiming to add more “salt” to Arsenal’s injury, as the Blues hopes to complete their first league double over Arsenal under the management of Thomas Tuchel.
Both clubs are set to be without one or two major players, but the fixture is expected to be a thriller, given the circumstances that Chelsea won the reverse fixture back in August and Arsenal needs all 3 points to get their top four finish right back on track.
Below are the 2 reasons why Arsenal do not stand a chance against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
1. Arsenal’s poor run of results
The Gunners are winless in their last 3 Premier League games against Crystal Palace, Brighton and Southampton.
Chelsea on the hand, are in electrifying form at the moment, and for a club like Arsenal who are in serious need of win, Stamford Bridge is not the Stadium to visit at the moment.
2. The absence of 4 of Arsenal’s major starters
Thomas Partey, Kieran Tierney and Takehiro Tomiyasu are all due to miss out on the trip to Stamford Bridge this evening, while the Gunners await the test results of Alexandre Lacazette’s Covid-19 test.
With the absence of 4 of Arsenal’s regular starters, Chelsea are most likely to come out victorious in the dug out at Stamford Bridge today.
And most of all, with Kieran Tierney and Tomiyasu ruled out of the clash, Arsenal will surely find it difficult to cope against Chelsea’s attacking full-backs, Marcos Alonso and Reece James.
