The upcoming fixture of Arsenal and Chelsea is to be held at Emirates Stadium is all set to be carnage. Arsenal will try to win the match if not something way off the track happens to them. Both the teams have enough firepower to make a blast on the ground but Chelsea is more likely to bag the three points. However, things may look in favor of the home team Arsenal as they would take control of the match from the start with the likes of Sterling, Sanchez, and Welbeck. Moreover, Chelsea remains the sixth team in the league table. Arsenal has won 11 league matches of the 21 matches they played and drawn 5 matches, bagging 38 points whereas the away team has registered 11 wins in the tournament and managed to settle at the 3rd position on the league table with just 45 points.
Given the performances of both the teams in their last six matches in the English Premier League 2017-2018, it is expected that Chelsea will have the last laugh on Thursday (IST). For Arsenal, it is expected that their players would try to contain the situation and would like to register their next win of the tournament. After drawing with West Brom Albion in their last match Arsenal would try to continue to do anything to gain more points. Arsenal’s goalie Petr Cech would try to keep as many shots as possible, away from the goalpost.
