Early boost for Arsenal as key Chelsea player misses training

Mikel Arteta’s men host their London counterparts and rivals Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night, knowing a win will take them three points clear of Liverpool and five points clear of Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s team won’t make an appearance in the league until Thursday night, presenting a significant psychological edge in the fiercely competitive Premier League title race.

It comes without a shadow of a doubt that the Gunners’ game against Mauricio Pochetinno’s side is a must-win, just like their remaining games.

And Arsenal might have an advantage even before kicking the ball In the midweek, That is because Chelsea’s talisman Cole Palmer could miss the game at North London due to a health scare.

In the press conference prior to the London Derby, Pochetinno claimed that the young Englishman is struggling to recover from illness.

“We will see [Tuesday] morning. Today, I don’t believe he can be involved,” the Argentine tactician said.

“Even if he is good [on Tuesday] maybe he is not in a condition to play. We hope he can recover from this situation and be involved with the team.”

Chelsea are ninth in the league and without Palmer’s presence they would have been nowhere close to where they are at the moment.

The Blue side of London have scored 61 goals in the league this season with the 21-year-old coming up with almost 1/3 of those (20). That has put him In contention for the Golden Boot.

With or without the young striker, Chelsea have a great squad that can hurt Arsenal in varied ways.

Despite their poor performance in the league season, They have made massive ground in the past few weeks, going unbeaten in the last five games.

Derbies don’t take form into consideration, which means that tomorrow is going to be an open fight  on an open field between two bulls.

Arsenal indeed have more to lose. And that will give Chelsea more motivation to pinch them In the wrong spot.

  1. Whatever could be the position on the field which Cole Palmer plays from for his Chelsea team. Arsenal don’t have any other choice to choose from besides the choice of to beat chelsea that is available on the cards for the Gunners to choose and take. If they want to beat the Blues tomorrow Tuesday night.
    They SHOULD therefore choose the choice of beating Chelsea that will be available on the cards for them to choose and take and beat them.
    So therefore, Arteta and his Gunners team SHOULD make this choice of to beat Chelsea tomorrow Tuesday night at the Emirates Stadium. And tale the choice of to beat them and beat them to the letter in the match. And beat Chelsea 4-0 at full-time of the match unfailingly.
    It WILL be of no concern to Arsenal. If Chelsea had spent over a Billion Pound on their squad building. And are looking will come good later to start winning laurels again. But what is of concern to Arsenal tomorrow night in the campaign, is to beat them. And beat hard, harder and hardest ever. And thereby remain rigidly on top of the table unmovable.

  2. Without Palmer, Chelsea would have been nowhere. But whenever they play Arsenal, there is a nextra motivation in them and with or without Palmer, the game will be tough.
