Stamford Bridge stadium in London will host the championship match in England. The teams from London, Chelsea and Arsenal will be competing against each other. The teams set the highest goals and strive to win every game in the APL.
Chelsea lost to Brighton in their last match of the APL. Earlier, the home team drew 1-1 with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. Prior to the loss to Howe, the Blues managed to extend their unbeaten streak to six meetings (+4=2-0). Potter’s squad ranks sixth with 21 points. Raheem Sterling, Jorginho and Mason Mount have been Chelsea’s main attacking threats this season, hitting the target three, two and two times respectively. “Chelsea has won four times, drawn once and lost once in the last six matches.
Arsenal lead the table with 31 points, two points ahead of Manchester City. “The Canaries were stronger than Nottingham in their last ALP match. Earlier, Arteta’s team earned one point with a 1-1 draw against Southampton. The visitors extended their unbeaten streak to six meetings (+5=1-0). In the last six league games, Arsenal won four, drew once and lost once. Canaries fans are indebted to Gabriel Jesus, Bucayo Saca and Gabriel Martinelli. Jesus is the club’s top scorer with five goals, followed by Saka and Martinelli with four goals each.
“Chelsea” has not lost to the opponent in eight of the previous ten personal home meetings in the APL (six wins and two world).
The season is shaping up in such a way that the Arsenal players look more convincing. Potter has stabilized the Blues’ game, taking the team to the next round of the Champions League. But setbacks like the loss to Brighton still suggest that the Blues are not without flaws, to put it mildly.
Arsenal look more solid and stable on the back of their opponent. We think the visitors will be closer to victory.
