Chelsea v Arsenal League Cup semi-final preview 0

Posted on January 09, 2018 by David Nugent

On Wednesday night, Arsenal travel to London rivals Chelsea for the League Cup semi-final first leg.

Chelsea will be hoping to gain the initiative in this tie in the first leg at Stamford Bridge. The Blues clashed with Arsenal just last week, in a game that ended 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium.

Since then Antonio Conte’s side produced a rather listless display at Norwich on Sunday in the FA Cup third round and were held to a goalless draw by the Canaries. However, Blues boss Conte had rotated his squad in order for his star players to be fit for this clash.

Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon, and are big underdogs given their poor form on the road this season.

However, the Gunners have picked up wins against the Blues at home and in neutral venues which could give them hope of seeing past Antonio Conte’s side to boost their title hopes.

As for the hosts and defending champions, Conte’s Chelsea side are currently third in the Premier League table with nine points from four games this season, having won three on the bounce ahead of this weekend’s meeting after losing on the opening day.

Henry: Arsenal must beat Chelsea to prove title credentials 0

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry says the Gunners have to win against the defending champions in Sunday afternoon’s Premier League at Stamford Bridge to prove they are still a top side. The former striker believes Arsenal need to “show they mean business” by beating the best sides in the division, as that’s the only way their hopes of winning the title will be taken seriously.

Ozil out for Chelsea clash 2

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil will miss Sunday afternoon’s Premier League clash with Chelsea through injury, reports the Express. The German international trained away from the squad with six other first-team players on ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash, and still hasn’t recovered in time for the trip to Stamford Bridge.

Arsene Wenger admitted the 28-year-old was a doubt along with midfielder Aaron Ramsey for this weekend’s meeting with the Premier League defending champions, meaning the Gunners boss will be forced into some changes. Without Ramsey in the side, Mohamed Elneny or Francis Coquelin could deputise. Without Ozil for Sunday’s game, Danny Welbeck could replace him.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he doesn’t believe his side will be lacking confidence ahead of Sunday afternoon’s Premier League meeting with Chelsea, despite the Gunners’ woeful record at Stamford Bridge, reports talkSPORT.

Arsenal travel to face the defending champions without a point in their two away games this season. The Londoners haven’t won away to Chelsea in the Premier League since 2011 and have a woeful record on the road to the top-six – two wins from 21 against such opposition. But Wenger remains hopeful his side can turn things around in the big away games.

Chelsea v Arsenal Premier League Preview 0

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.

Does Petr Cech have anything to prove ahead of Hull City meeting? 0

Posted on February 11, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech should start in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Hull City, but he’ll be feeling he needs a good performance to put last week out of his head. The veteran shot-stopper didn’t have the best homecoming at Stamford Bridge when he lined up against former employers Chelsea on Saturday, and in truth has been picking the ball out of his net all too often in recent weeks.

Olivier Giroud ends 11-game wait for a goal against Chelsea 0

Posted on February 05, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud came off the bench and scored in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Premier League leaders Chelsea, ending an 11-game goal drought against the Blues in all competitions. The French international has been on the winning side only twice in the head-to-heads with Chelsea, but has finally got a monkey off his back by registering at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Giroud was dropped for Saturday’s clash for Alexis Sanchez but responded in the best way by scoring after being introduced in the second-half. He’s enjoyed a fantastic season for goals, netting eight times in 658 minutes in the Premier League, but still cannot nail down a starting place for a prolonged period. The 30-year-old has made only six league starts but is proving to be a super-sub.

Arsenal 13/4 to win against Chelsea 0

Posted on February 04, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League this afternoon. The Gunner are underdogs to get a result given their current injury crisis in the midfield, coupled with their long-standing failure to win away to their London rivals. Arsenal seldom take all three points at the Bridge, but they can’t afford anything less if they are to get their title hopes back on track.

Cech demands a response against Chelsea “to get back on track” in the title race 0

Posted on February 04, 2017 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has called on his side to respond after their surprise defeat to Watford. The Gunners missed an opportunity to make up ground on Premier League leaders Chelsea, who were held to Liverpool, and now they face the table-toppers needing nothing short of all three points to ensure the title race remains wide open. Arsenal are nine points adrift with 15 to go, but could narrow the gap if they can win at Stamford Bridge in the league for the first time since 2011.
