Chelsea vs Arsenal
BPL - KO - 12.30
IT'S JUDGEMENT DAY👊🏻 Arsenal travel to the Bridge in the biggest match of their season, in the hope of cutting the leaders point gap from 9 to 6, and if Arsenal don't win this game, the title is certainly over.
The calamitous defeat on Tuesday night means that Arsenal can't afford anymore slip ups and and must turn up with a big performance today. The Gunners destroyed Chelsea, 3-0, earlier in the season but this is a much different game. Chelsea have changed to three at the back since then and have won 13 out of their 15 league games!
Arsenal have a very very poor record at Stamford Bridge, having last won their in 2011, when Robbin Van Persie scored a hat trick. But since 2009 The Gunners have only beaten Chelsea twice in the league. The stats don't make great reading for a Gunners side that simply has to win, but in football anything can happen.
My Arsenal Team⚽️ Cech,
Bellérin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Gibbs,
Walcott, Özil, Welbeck,
I would never start Giroud in a match like this. Yes he has been scoring goals, but I feel we don't have the same presence up front when he's in the side and against this Chelsea team, it's all about getting behind their fullbacks and pace is key. I would start Welbeck, because when he's fit, he would walk into the Arsenal team and I feel his pace, power and hight, will cause problems for this Chelsea side.
I am not very confident about this one. My heart says we can win but my head is telling me that this is a nailed on loss. I am going to meet in the middle with a 1-1 draw which isn't great result but one we might have to take!
