As we all now know, Arsenal suffered a 4-1 defeat against Chelsea in the Europa League final on Wednesday night in Baku. After a relatively even first half, Chelsea took control of the game and was difficult to argue with the scoreline in the end.
After the disappointing defeat, Gunners boss Unai Emery is quoted by Sky Sports as saying: “Our idea is to continue to carry on and improve with the young players that have arrived,”
“Maybe some players need to leave but it’s not the moment to speak about that.” .......Read more here.....

Arsenal will face Chelsea in the Europa League final tomorrow, with one team fighting for a place in the Champions League – and the other just fighting for the trophy itself. That kind of dynamic is going to be really interesting to watch unfold from the first minute right up until the very last, because in terms of desire and hunger, you’d have to imagine Arsenal want this more than the Blues do. If nothing else, the ticket sales seem to suggest that (although we can somewhat understand the position of both clubs given the Baku dilemma). .......Read more here.....

On Saturday evening, Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, as the visitors look to chalk up their first points of the season.
Chelsea started the Maurizio Sarri era with a routine 3-0 win at Huddersfield on the opening weekend of the campaign. Goals from Jorginho, N’Golo Kante and Pedro sealed a relatively easy win for the Blues.
The home side ended last season in decent form, and the Blues have now won five of their last season matches in the English top-flight. The fact that they have lost just twice in 15 Premier League games shows that the Blues are a tough team to beat. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win over Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night to make it to the final of the EFL Cup.
Chelsea dominated the early proceedings with Tiemoue Bakayoko seeing a shot deflect wide of David Ospina’s goal. Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses also flashed a long-range effort well wide of goal.
The Blues thought they had the lead on five minutes, as Spanish winger Pedro scored with a powerful header. However, the referee’s assistant flagged for offside and replays proved that the decision was the correct one. .......Read more here.....

Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.
The home side had the first attempt on goal after just two minutes, as Alvaro Morata tried to poke an effort in at the near post. However, the Spanish striker could only find the side-netting.
The next attempt on goal did not come until the 20th minute when Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka dragged a long-range free-kick wide of goal. Two minutes later the visitors hit the Blues on the counter-attack, Jack Wilshere feeding the ball to Alexandre Lacazette, who fires wide of Chelsea’s near post. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal and Chelsea are ready for the second of their three January encounters.
Having played out a scintillating 2-2 draw in the Premier League last week, the London rivals are set to lock horns once again – in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final tie at Stamford Bridge.
Premier League might be the priority competition for both sides this season with Gunners and Blues looking to lock the top-four finish and secure Champions League football next year but Carabao Cup could arguably be their best chance of securing a piece of silverware this term. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal and reigning Premier League champions Chelsea drew 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night.
The first attempt on goal arrived on seven minutes and fell for the home side. Alexis Sanchez hit a free-kick from around 25 yards out that deflected wide of by the Chelsea wall.
At the other end of the pitch, Rob Holding blocked an Eden Hazard shot, as the Blues looked to hit the Gunners on the break. The visitors missed a fantastic chance on 13 minutes. .......Read more here.....

On Wednesday night, Arsenal host London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium, as the home side attempt to make up ground on the top-four.
A disappointing display and result at West Brom in a 1-1 draw saw the Gunners fall six points behind fourth-place Liverpool in the race for the Champions League spots.
A run of just two wins in their last seven Premier League outings has hampered Arsene Wenger’s side’s top-four challenge. Four draws in their last six top-flight outings has also stopped the Gunners making up ground on the top-four. .......Read more here.....

On Sunday lunchtime, Arsenal face a tough test as the Gunners travel to London rivals Chelsea in the Premier League.
The home side have hit form of late, recording four consecutive wins in all competitions. Last time out the Blues hammered Azerbaijan champions Qarabag 6-0 in the Champions League. The big win followed a 2-1 win at Leicester in their last Premier League outing.
Unsurprisingly considering that they were champions last season, Antonio Conte’s side have a formidable record in the Premier League of late, having won nine of their last ten outings in the English top-flight. The English champions have also scored two or more goals in nine of their last ten league outings. .......Read more here.....

Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at league leaders Chelsea showed that Arsenal are simply not good enough to win the Premier League title. Despite at times dominating possession, the Gunners did not seem to have the strength, quality or big game know-how to beat the Blues.
It looked like men against boys at times. Chelsea were incisive and boss Antonio Conte knew exactly were the Gunners weak spots were and exploited them to perfection. In reality Chelsea probably did not really have to adapt their game much for the clash, as they recorded a relatively comfortable win.
Not looking at the opposition .......Read more here.....
