Former Chelsea player Marcel Desailly has offered his prediction for the upcoming match between his former club and Arsenal this weekend.
Both London clubs have experienced different starts to the season, with Chelsea struggling to secure wins while Arsenal has maintained an undefeated status.
Arsenal secured a significant victory just before the international break when they defeated Manchester City, which has undoubtedly boosted their confidence going into the match against Chelsea. However, Chelsea has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks.
Despite Arsenal’s recent successes, Desailly believes that Chelsea will emerge victorious in the game.
He predicted, as quoted by Talk Sport:
“It looks impossible, but I’ll go for a 3-1 win. I’ll go for 3-1 Chelsea. Why not?
“This is the beauty of the Premier League. As soon as a team has a mental drop and isn’t ready for the intensity of a match, they can lose. When Arsenal players arrive at Chelsea, they may believe that it won’t be as difficult as it would at Tottenham, City, or eventually, Man United.”
