Prediction

  • The two sides are good at finding the back of the net so we will definitely witness a goal-fest.
  • Given that they’re still stuck back in 10th place, Arsenal needs the points more than Chelsea. 
  • But the Blues have far more quality throughout their ranks and boast a favorable recent record against their London rivals, so we expect trouble from the Blues, that will definitely be countered.
