Arsenal – Chelsea : Preview & Prediction
This is the fifth confrontation of the season between the two clubs and they are still neutralized for the moment! Strong at Stamford Bridge (0-0) on the occasion of the first leg of this league semi-final, the Gunners must this time take their responsibilities at home. Dominating but unable to convert their opportunities in the league (2-2) in early January, Lacazette and others know they can afford a ticket to Wembley. Flawless against Crystal Palace (4-1) last weekend, while they remained on a worrying series of five games without a win, the Gunners confidently approach this classic English football. This is also the case of the Blues, who have just cried Brighton (0-4) thanks to a particular Eden Hazard stratospheric. This competition does not use the goal rule outside, a draw would lead us to an extension, before any shots on goal … Arsenal can afford a thinning in this average season (6th of EPL) rallying the final?
Arsenal had clearly dominated Chelsea in the game at the Emirates early January (2-2) as part of the championship.
The Gunners have just delivered a reference performance against Crystal Palace (4-1) in the Premier League. Lacazette scored and the Özil trio, Wilshere, Xhaka proved to their advantage.
Arsenal have won 13 of 18 games played in front of their home crowd this season!
Arsenal is criticized this season but remains very solid at the Emirates where he won 13 of his 18 games, for only one defeat. Chelsea have never been better than the Gunners in the first three meetings of the season – all tied in a draw – and we have good reason to believe that the time for a real victory Wenger’s benchmark has arrived . Sometimes feverish on the move, Chelsea will bend to his rival London!
