Stadium: Emirates, London
- Arsenal have failed to win their last 7 matches (Premier League).
- Arsenal are unbeaten in their last two meetings against Chelsea.
- Chelsea are winless in 3 of their last four matches in all competitions.
Arsenal take on Chelsea in the Premier League at the weekend and the Gunners will be hoping to bounce back from their consecutive defeats against Everton and Manchester City.
Mikel Arteta is under pressure to deliver the goods now and it will be interesting to see if the players can step up and grind out the three points.
Arsenal will be without Thomas Partey for this game but the likes of Aubameyang and Gabriel are expected to return from their injury problem.
Arsenal Possible Line-ups
Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Gabriel Magalhaes, Shkodran Mustafi, Kieran Tierney; Granit Xhaka, Mohamed Elneny, Dani Ceballos; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Willian
There will be an extra onus on picking up all three points because it is a Derby game and Chelsea will want to pile further misery on the corners with a win here.
Chelsea have been the better team in the Premier League this season and they have the quality to dismantle the Arsenal defence this weekend. It remains to be seen if Arsenal can stay well organised at the back and contain an impressive Chelsea attack.
Chelsea will be without Hakim Ziyech due to an injury issue this weekend.
Chelsea Possible Line-ups
Edouard Mendy; Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Thiago Silva, Ben Chilwell; N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho; Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud, Kai Havertz
Arsenal : Draw : Chelsea :: 29/10: 5/2 : 19/20
Apart from the lack of form, Arsenal are desperately lacking in confidence and momentum right now.
Without the likes of Thomas Partey, they will struggle to keep the Chelsea attackers in check and the Blues should be able to edge this one.
Arsenal 1-2 Chelsea
