Arsenal vs Chelsea: 5 Talking Points Before Kick Off

Everton vs Arsenal: Line-ups



Arsenal Desperate to End Bad Run


The Gunners, who are down in 15th spot in the table, will be searching for their first league victory since the start of November, while Chelsea will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in England’s top flight, having comfortably dispatched West Ham United at Stamford Bridge.


A record of four wins, two draws and eight defeats from 14 matches this season is an indication of Arsenal’s problems, and they are only four points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Saturday’s fixtures.


The Blues entered Monday’s clash with West Ham off the back of successive defeats to Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers but managed to overcome the Hammers courtesy of a first-half header from Thiago Silva and a second-half brace from Tammy Abraham.


Arsenal lead the overall head to head between these two teams, with the Gunners boasting 78 wins to Chelsea’s 65, while there have also been 58 draws throughout history.


For all of Arsenal’s problems this season, they are more than capable of picking up a positive result against a Chelsea side that still have their shortcomings.
