Premier League Champions Chelsea host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend and the Blues will be willing to continue their impressive run of form with a win.
After the disappointing defeat against Burnley on the opening day of the Premier League season, Antonio Conte’s team have found their rhythm once again.
They will be heading into this London derby on the back of a 6-0 victory in the UEFA Champions League, and the Gunners needs to be very careful approaching the match.
Arsene Wenger’s men have lost two of their last three English Premier League matches, and their record against top four teams is quite embarrassing.
Arsenal will need to improve on their backline if they want to come out with a positive result from this derby.
The West Londoners have a fully fit squad to pick from for this weekend’s London derby clash.
Meanwhile, North London giant Arsenal will certainly be without their injured duo of Francis Coquelin and Spaniard Santi Cazorla.
The West London club have won 16 of their last 18 home games in the English Premier League. They have also performed well against the Gunners in their last few home matches. Bookies are giving this one to home side to win on Sunday afternoon.
The home team are favourites to win this one, and they are expected to secure a comfortable victory. Arsenal are quite weak defensively, and they will struggle to keep the likes of Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata quiet.
The Blues have enough quality players at the back to contain the fire power of Alexis Sanchez, and Alexander Lacazette and a home victory look quite likely here. A Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal scoreline to be precise.
