Arsenal vs Chelsea Preview

Arsenal vs Chelsea

Competition – Carabao Cup Semifinals (0:0)

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 24th January 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Despite being without Alexis Sanchez at the weekend, Arsenal were able to finally break out of their slump and secure a 4-1 win over Crystal Palace.

That win ended a run of poor results including the first leg of this Carabao Cup semifinal and a shock 4-2 loss to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

With the FA Cup gone, this competition is their only realistic hope of winning a trophy this year.

Now that Alexis Sanchez is out of the way and Henrikh Mkhitaryanis in the squad, Arsene Wenger will be hoping for some freshness in the way his team plays and hope they can beat the Blues here.

The Gunners have been impressive at home all season with 14 wins and a single loss from 18 games.

They have conceded 6 goals in their last 3 games and they need to do better defensively to stop Chelsea’s attack in this game.

Chelsea also ended a poor run of 5 consecutive draws at the weekend as they walloped Brighton 4-0 away from home.

That win should have boosted their confidence further.

Antonio Conte is still searching for a new attacker, but Eden Hazard’s performance in the game against Brighton would have offered Conte some encouragement going forward.

The Blues have won just two of their last 7 games away from home, drawing 4 of those.
