In what will be the fourth meeting in 2017, Arsenal are currently ahead two wins to Chelsea’s one this year in all competitions, and once again major implications are on the line on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
Arsenal will be looking for their third victory this season in the league and will be encouraged by their second half performance against FC Koln in the Europa League – even more so with the return of star man Alexis Sanchez amongst the goals.
Last season a 3-0 victory at the Emirates was followed up by a tight 2-1 loss at Stamford Bridge, and the Gunners will at least head into Sunday’s key fixture with back-to-back victories in the bag. Their last victory against the Blues coming in a penalty shoot out win at Wembley in the Community Shield last month.
Another stat that will hopefully be more encouraging than negative for Gunners fans is that they haven’t lost six straight away league games versus one team since back in the 1980’s. Although their record at Stamford Bridge is poor over these last six meetings will Sunday really set an unwelcome record? A full-strength squad could put an end to their West London hoodoo.
Although Arsenal are not favourites you can certainly take advantage of absolutely fantastic odds of 50/1 from Betfair on Arsene Wenger’s men pulling off the victory – claim this huge 50/1 limited offer here.
