With Arsenal having a strong season in the Premier League you would normally have expected our next game against Chelsea at the Emirates stadium to have been a potentially pivotal game in the destination of the coveted EPL title. But there is only one of the clubs with any chance of becoming champions of England in May.
While we may have all enjoyed Chelsea’s hard to fathom fall from grace this campaign, they have already inflicted one of the few defeats on Arsenal and could perhaps put another big dent in our title hopes on Sunday, so it is still a massive game for Arsene Wenger and the players.
At least the Prof is not facing his bogey manager in Jose Mourinho and, to be honest, we are in a very strong position to get our revenge on the reigning champions for that absolute travesty at Stamford Bridge in September, assuming that the Premier League have not stitched us up with Mike Dean again of course.
For one thing Arsenal have the huge double boost of getting the best number 10 in the world this season back in the shape of Mesut Ozil and he is going to be joined by Alexis Sanchez again for the first time since November. Those two will be major additions against a Chelsea side that is bound to come to north London with the intention of stopping us from scoring rather than taking the game to us.
And while the two draws against Liverpool could be seen as four points dropped, they have reinforced the belief in the players that we are ready to fight for each other and scrap for every point. And in the former Chelsea keeper Petr Cech we have a leader who has given the defence great confidence and a calming influence. Cheers for that Roman!
Also, the law of averages surely means that we are owed a bit of luck against Chelsea, so is everything in place for an Arsenal win?
It will be nice to trash Chelsea and further push them where they will end up eventually (The bottom three)
2-0 victory for my daling Arsenal, (Giroud and Ramsey) to score the goals…..2 Ozil assists of courseb
Listen baby pleeeeease on a daily basiiiiiis
Chlsea are performing better
Especially Fabregas and Costa
Without Ozil and Alexis we LOSE 0-4
With them we LOSE 2-3
been a while we heard ur craps……
well dn’t get ur hopes too high on seeing an inform sanchez against chelski……he’s onLy just returned from a Long injury Lay off and may be a bit rusty or match-unfit
hiyah!…..but…..we talking bout the ultimate DuraceLL ere, and he just might come out the MOTM at the end of the day……. u never know!
Just have to win. Not because we are playing Chelsea, but because we are on top of the league gunning for the title and our title rivals are just beside us. Drop the Chelsea talk and talk about title and how important it is to win every match. Man city are picking up.
Listen Baby Please, I m not listening….
we should beat chelsea at all cost,that’s if we want to keep our momentum at the top,they robbed us three points in september an this is the perfect tym to them our classy,nt that boring type of football
If Walcott and Ox continue playing like they did against Stoke, then we have very slim chance to draw against Chelsea let alone beating them … Giroud has only aerial quality and he will find difficulties playing against Terry, Ivanovic, and Matic …
I hope Sanchez and Ozil could make it, these two are our game changers …
Wenger should play Gab this time to get our revenge from the butcher …
have u seen the EPL table lately?………. Having a two goal difference over the foxes (and at equal pts)isn’t exactly top of the league stuff to gloat bout
up Next is
ArsenaL vs cheLski
Leicester vs stoke
Westham vs citeh
a deciding factor?
there’s need for Wenger to consider making subs alot earlier than the 70th minute when things are going awry
or is he being programmed / remote controlled?????
Why has Chelsea seem to be our Achilles hill? We have to beat them to cement our hold ate the top of the EPL table and most especially, for London pride sake. Most of ALL, its pay back time against Costa for what he did to Gab earlier in the season in my opinion. Whatever we do, we mush have no additional injuries cos the three points against Barcelona are up for grabs at all cost at the Emirates stadium!
Play like the first 20 minutes against Man utd definitely it will be good for the team, no wonder the team can open up opponents at home. Arsenal should run the channels and not allow Terry to win headers or crosses easily. Walcott to run at defenders from the get go so as to unsettle Chelsea. Guus has a good record against Arsenal but rightly so Arsenal deserve the luck of Champions they so much craved for.
