Sutton predicts a tough day for Arsenal against Chelsea

Arsenal faces Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend in a huge clash for both clubs.

Mikel Arteta’s side currently tops the Premier League table and they need to win to remain in that position by next week.

Chelsea is aiming for a top-four finish and probably a title challenge as well and Graham Potter will want to prove he can outfox a top manager.

The Chelsea boss has not done badly so far, but beating Arsenal will send a message around the league that he truly can manage a top club.

Chris Sutton was predicting this weekend’s matches and he is not sure either side can get the upper hand over the other.

He predicts on the BBC:

“Arsenal have won at Stamford Bridge in each of the past two seasons but I am not convinced they will make it three in a row.

“A lot depends on whether Bukayo Saka is fit for the Gunners and how Chelsea boss Graham Potter approaches the game – like one of his predecessors, Claudio Ranieri, he has been a bit of a ‘Tinkerman’ with his team and tactics recently.

“Overall Potter has done well though, and I don’t think his side will be as bad again at the back as they were against Brighton last time out.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Beating Chelsea will not be easy, but we have shown in games against the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool this season that we have what it takes to deliver.

This game might be tough, but if our players are in their best form, they should earn all the points from the fixture.

  1. At the beginning of the campaign many fans and pundits alike had predicted this game to be one of the toughest while some had settled for a one nil lost.

    Lots have change at the Bridge since most notable a new manager Graham Potter, the Englishman is known for playing some of the most beautiful football.

    Though this will be a tough encounter, history gives neither of the teams an advantage.
    In my opinion Arsenal has the advantage as the Englishman is still getting to know his team, Potter playing style takes time to fine tune although bless with one of the most talented squad at his disposal.

    In the pass Chelsea had relied on Dragba and the big bad wolf Diego Costa, to bully us and win, Arsenal this season is a different outfit from the team they had beat in the pass.
    I have seen it up close in the Camping arena where Chelsea couldn’t get close, the 4 nil hammering in preseason didn’t flatter us.

    Fresh from that 5 nil hammering of forest, Arsenal will be going to the bridge with tail in back.

  2. It’s gonna be really tough. Whenever everyone thinks Arsenal will win a game, they flop. It’s always because we think a game will make an easy win that we do badly. I’m not giving Arsenal favorites especially because Chelsea were bad last week. They will try to fight back.
    Watching our back yard will be crucial to securing a win or at worst a draw.

  3. Yes! For me, I can confidently predict a 3 straight match winning run at the Bridge for Arsenal tomorrow Sunday. In their Epl match to Chelsea.
    This my Arsenal match away win to Chelsea prediction has become very necessary for the Gunners to bring my predicted Epl match win for Arsenal to come to pass tomorrow unfailingly.
    In as much as the Gunners know very well that if Arsenal are to remain the leaders of the Premier League this week and even beyond. Then, they the Gunners have to beat Chelsea at their backyard tomorrow. And beat them giving their beating them whatever it will take Arsenal to beat them.
    This Arsenal Epl match away to Chelsea tomorrow, is another big game which the Arsenal title rival club sides and their detractors this season have been waiting for. And targeting to see if Arsenal will win the match to still continue to remain a top of the League challenging for the title win with only a match left to play before the break for the World Cup.
    Therefore, Arsenal in their Epl away match to Chelsea tomorrow should and MUST prove all their title win detractors that includes Man City this season totally wrong to the letter in their seeking and wanting to see Arsenal fall in the game to Chelsea. But instead of the Gunners to fall in the match. Let them stand up firmly on their feet on the field of play in the match. And unshaken throughout the entire course of the 90 minutes plus the duration time of playing the match to win it and win it.

  4. Another tough test away from home against a top-four rival. We failed the last one at Old Trafford. I hope we come away with something in this one. We should if the boys play their best

  5. Watch out fot the ref who could be the 12th
    man for Chelsea.
    I am sure gooner fans will agree with m.9
