I am sure that every Arsenal fan would prefer it if Arsene Wenger and the players were heading to Stamford Bridge for our next Premier League match on Sunday to face a Chelsea side that was in disarray, but that is not the case, especially after they got their latest Champions League group phase off to a perfect start with a 6-0 win over Qarabag last night.
After the shock defeat at home to Burnley in their opening EPL game Chelsea have bounced back strongly and won all four since, including an away victory at Tottenham and Leicester and at home to Everton, so you have to say they are doing well and for that reason the Gunners must approach Sunday’s league meeting with caution.
However, I also think that Wenger and the Arsenal players should head across London without too much fear because we do have a good recent record against Antonio Conte’s side. The three Arsenal victories, in last season’s Premier League meeting at the Emirates and FA cup final before this season’s Community shield, have all seen us take the game to Chelsea and that should be the plan once again, without being too open and forgetting about being hard to beat of course.
A 6-0 win over the champions of Azerbaijan from a team which will be much different to the one we face should be no reason for Arsenal to be afraid of Chelsea. How confident are you of a result on Sunday, Gooners?
