Arsenal vs Chelsea Preview

Arsenal vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 3rd January 2018

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Arsenal dropped points yet again in their last game against a West Brom side that has not won a league game since August.

That result means they have now won four and drawn four of their last 8 competitive games.

They had to wait until the 83rd minute to score via an own goal in that game against the Baggies.

Their league form has suffered more recently as they have won only two of their last seven league games and although their only loss during that period was against Manchester United, they are guilty of dropping too many points at the moment.

The Blues on their part are enjoying a rich vein of form.

They have won 5 of their last 6 league games and their last match before this game ended in a 5-0 drubbing of Stoke City.

They have risen to second in the league table and are still in the Carabao Cup so they come into this game in high spirits.

Away from home, Chelsea have not had it easy as they have only 3 wins from their last 7 visits and have kept 3 clean sheets in the process.

They have both won two, lost two and drawn two of their last six encounters together.
