Can Liverpool do Arsenal a BIG favour against Chelsea?

It has certainly been a slow burner of a season for Arsenal so far this year and without a fair bit of luck going our way then we would be even further adrift of the Premier League pace setters and bottom of our Champions League group.

We have seem this before from the Gunners in recent years though, before the momentum builds and we go on a great run, so it is not quite time to panic yet and the next two games give Arsenal a great chance to get some form going and get up to speed.

A trip to Hull City in the league, even though the Tigers have made a surprisingly good start to the season, is a game which Arsenal should win and one that should allow our creative juices to flow. The same goes for the first EFL cup match next week away to Nottingham Forest, even though I expect the boss to make quite a few changes.

To be honest we really need to be playing well after the next two matches because the one after that is the visit of Chelsea and our recent record against the Stamford Bridge boys is nothing short of abysmal. However, while the Gunners are hopefully building momentum, the opposite may be true of the Blues.

After a perfect start to life under Antonio Conte in their first three games, Chelsea slumped to a shock draw with Swansea last time out and their next two games are against a rejuvenated and dangerous Liverpool tomorrow and then Leicester in the cup.

If Jurgen Klopp can get a win or even a point off Chelsea he will have done us a huge favour, perhaps even allowing us to go into the match next weekend above them in the table. Wenger and the Arsenal players need to do their bit, of course, and perform much better than they have been, but if Liverpool can further dent Chelsea’s confidence, could we be set for a long overdue EPL win over them?

    It’s gonna be a tough game. Chelsea knows how to beat Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Although Liverpool defeated Chelsea last season at Stamford bridge. Honestly, a draw will be a good result.

    1. muda says:

      Liverpool beating chelsea isn’t the main issue here, it is about us taking the chance to our advantage.

  2. PRINCE AFZ says:

    Honestly I don’t care what happens in other games. I am mainly concerned about how the squad of ours gels and turn up in our coming fixtures. I love the expected competition in this squad. And I also see signs that Wenger is ready to be blunt about team selection.

    Honestly, I’m tired of always having to rely on other teams to get stuff done for things to go our way. A week in advance we’re hoping Chelsea draw vs Liverpool so we can head into the match vs them with confidence, the article says Chelsea slumped to a shock draw when Swansea were lucky to get away with anything.

    If we have to hope and pray for other teams to do us favours before we even get confidence we really are in a sad state of affairs as that doesn’t sound like a championship mentality. I’m sure Pep isn’t hoping Liverpool do them any favours, he’s only focused on winning

    1. Fatboy Gooney says:

      Aw,bless the Honest crew ?
      The blatant truth is that we will always rely on our rivals to drop points, Simply because we’re not good enough to fight our own battles to win the league on our own and the sad part is even when they do drop points, we never seem to capitalise on it…. Go figure. ?

      1. Unless a team is guaranteed to win all 38 fixture, it’s only logical that others will have a say as to wether or not it can win the league.. please be reasonable mate.

  4. The referee will be under the microscope due to what transpires in the game against Swansea, which could work against the scousers and ultimately us as they may think they owed Chelsea one. With it being a home match the fans wins will do their best to ensure they do indeed get back one, so Liverpool is really up against it.

  5. Fatboy Gooney says:

    That pesky dirty Costa should be our only worry about facing Chelsea, I hope that Gabriel is fit to slap him down to size lol ??

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      In all fairness to Gabe. After that sending off against Chelsea, dude has dropped form. Before that, he was don alright. He was the only one who backed up Kos. The rest of the squad just stood there lookin punked

  6. Big G says:

    Liverpool are rejuvenated under Klopp and Chelsea have started well. While Chelsea drew their last game Liverpool hammered Leicester so the game at Stamford Bridge should be a good game. I think this will be a draw.

  7. Robin Vanpayslip says:

    In Mustafi and Gabriel we have two excellent defenders for the long term. What we need is someone to get them to where we need.

  8. Bolly from Borehamwood says:

    As Sideshow Bob will be playing for Chelsea I don’t think Liverpool have anything to worry about!

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      “Sideshow Bob” is a solid defender.

  9. Wilshegz says:

    even if Liverpool whitewash Chelsea as they did Leicester, it ll mean Lil if we dnt beat Hull away or we go lose to Chelsea in a fortnight.

    lesson of the story: it still boils down to us.

    and Liverpool ll be doing themselves a favour cos at most their Title-hope is attached to the 6-pointer and at the least their Top4… oh wait… European football hope is attached to it.
