SOCCER ENGLAND Premier League: Arsenal vs Chelsea, Match Preview
ENGLAND Premier League: Arsenal vs Chelsea, Match Preview Probably Lineup: Home: Arsenal 3-4-2-1 Chelsea: Chelsea 4-3-3 The shadow of doubt surrounding Arsenal’s ability to break into the Premier League top 4 grew larger last weekend as they slumped to a dismal 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham, and with it they saw gaps widen and close unfavourably on both sides of them. Now, coming into gameweek 23 of the Premier League, Unai Emery’s Gunners find themselves level on points with 6th placed Manchester United and some 6 points adrift of Saturday’s opponents Chelsea in 4th place. The Gunners have won just 2 of their last 6 Premier League outings and come up against a Chelsea side who are unbeaten in 4 games, but who have problems of their own. Their unexpected defeats to Wolves and Leicester in December have seen their title ambitions grind to a halt, and recently their stalwart defensive ability has started to crumble. The Blues have now conceded in 4 of their last 5 league away games, so it’s unsurprising to see an abundance of high scoring games from Maurizio Sarri’s men. 8 of their 10 Premier League trips away this season have seen 3 or more goals scored, and they’re facing an Arsenal side who have seen a massive 78 goals in their 22 games so far. This averaged out at 3.54 goals per game, and their last 4 home matches have seen an huge 16 goals scored in total. Sitting six points off their fourth-placed visitors after last weekend’s 1-0 loss at West Ham, Arsenal (W12, D5, L5) realistically cannot afford to lose if they want a Champions League return. Yet with just one Premier League (PL) victory over Chelsea in 14 games (W1, D5, L8) since 2011, the ‘Gunners’ will be underdogs here. Last weekend’s loss marked the first time this league season that Arsenal have failed to score since opening day. That forms part of a relatively poor run since mid-December (W2, D1, L3), especially considering their previous 22-game unbeaten run (in all competitions). Still, home form remains good with just one PL defeat all season (W8, D2, L1) and seven victories coming with a -1 handicap.
