Chelsea will welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge tonight (Wednesday) in an age-old London rivalry in the Premier League with both sides needing a win to achieve their European objectives.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have become one of the most solid team in Europe while also gradually starting to show quality in terms of their attacking ideas.
This has been evident most recently in the Blues’ run to the UEFA Champions League final, while the come-from-behind 2-1 win over Manchester City this past weekend showed their growing fighting spirit.
Arsenal, on the other hand, continue to be mired in mediocrity, with the 2020/21 season set to end in trophyless fashion for them.
The Gunners have, in fact, seemingly gone backwards under Mikel Arteta, often showing a lack of ideas on the pitch, with even UEFA Europa League qualification starting to look unlikely.
Chelsea Vs Arsenal Lineup
Chelsea XI (3-4-2-1): Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Silva, Zouma, James, Gilmour, Jorginho, Chilwell, Mount, Pulisic, Havertz
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Holding, Gabriel, Marí, Tierney, Thomas, Elneny, Saka, Ødegaard, S. Rowe, Aubameyang
Kick off is at 20:15 (GMT +1).
