Arsenal v Chelsea: Match Preview

-

Arsenal will be looking to go four points clear at the top of the Premier League table as they face Chelsea at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side can secure another win after their victory at Wolves on Sunday and continue their race for the title.

The visitors, Chelsea, head into the fixture after a 1-0 loss against Manchester City, which saw them miss out on a place in the final of the FA Cup.

However, a strong performance in the match will encourage manager Mauricio Pochettino and his side to secure a result against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal.

Chelsea’s European hopes for next season now rest on where they finish in the league.

Match details

Last time out in the league, Pochettino’s side secured a stunning 6-0 victory over Everton, with Cole Palmer scoring a first-half hat trick.

The West London side has been on an unbeaten Premier League run since early February when they lost 4-2 against Wolves.

Despite the form of the visitors, Arsenal fans will be feeling confident heading to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday having won five and drawn two of their last eight Premier League games against Chelsea.

Expected Line-ups

Arsenal have no new injury concerns heading into the match with Jurrien Timber still the only remaining absentee.

Chelsea star Cole Palmer is a doubt due to illness, with Malo Gusto and Ben Chilwell reportedly out with injuries.
