Arsenal vs Chelsea Preview

Arsenal vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Emirates Stadium

Date: 19th January 2019

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

This is Arsenal’s best chance to close the gap on the top four and anything short of a win would almost end all their chances of making the top four as Manchester United continue to improve by the minute.

The Gunners were beaten by West Ham 1-0 last weekend and that result meant they are now six points behind their visitors who occupy 4th position.

Unai Emery’s have men scored 7 times and conceded just 2 goals in their last two games at the Emirates.

While the likes of Burnley and Fulham are not on the same level as Chelsea, Emery will be hoping that his players can take advantage of this to show what they are made off.

The Blues are not exactly in their best run of form at the moment as they keep struggling for goals.

However, their 2-1 win over Newcastle in their last game is a positive result and their fans would be hoping that they can build on that with a positive display in this game.

Chelsea are looking to secure a deal for Gonzalo Higuain which highlights just how desperate they are for fire power.

They haven’t scored more than 2 goals in their last 10+ games and the Gunners will be looking to take advantage of that here.

Chelsea and Arsenal have won one a piece and drawn once in their last three matchups.

Despite the above, bookmakers have priced Chelsea up as favourites to get the job done at the Emirates Stadium.

Goal markets suggest this will be an exciting game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.

This game gets underway at 17:30 BST.
