Arsenal vs Chelsea – Premier League : This is the big match of the Premier League’s 22nd round although
At this stage, Arsenal and Chelsea are only fighting for 2nd place.
It is, in fact, on that context, that the match seems to be decided. For the Gunners, the 7-point distance to the Blues is what they have to work on, with Arsène Wenger having to show his players the winning way.
The things are, however, far from being easy for a French manager who is clearly, at the end of a cycle.
When Arsenal starts this match, two of their more decisive players, Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Ozil will already be available to sign for other teams, considering the deadline that their respective contracts have.
Considering that, end of cycle seems too soft to characterize the Gunners’ current situation. Inside the pitch, the month of December didn’t bring them many reasons to smile.
Starting off with a home loss to Manchester United, they then got 4 draws, which helps to explain their position, why they are so far from the better spots of the league table.
Chelsea is now the best positioned team in the Premier League, besides the Citizens. Also for the Blues, the month of December didn’t start off in the best way.
Despite a win against Newcastle, the loss away at West Ham has ended their dreams of a recovery at the end of 2017.
Before Christmas, Everton forced Antonio Conte’s team to drop points, which means that now Chelsea is looking for City 14 points away, having 1 more point more than Manchester United.
Arsenal vs Chelsea – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Starting the new year with a win is an advantage that Arsenal and Chelsea are looking for on their fight for 2nd place. For the Blues, it would be a security.
For the Gunners, a gamble. Will Wenger still be involved in this fight, despite having to handle some complicated opponents in order to be successful?
