Arsenal v Chelsea Preview, Premiership, Sunday 26th April 2015.

This Premiership clash will be a huge test for Arsenal, as although the chance of stealing this years title from Chelsea is slim, a win here against the league leaders will certainly push for that outcome.  There is currently ten points between both clubs right now with only six games remaining. Arsenal only have Manchester United as any major worry, although the likes of Hull City, Sunderland and West Brom could be tough with all three clubs fighting to avoid that relegation drop. In other competitions we have seen Arsenal earn a pass into the FA Cup final for the second year running, and this time face an Aston Villa side who themselves are fighting for relegation survival.

Jose Mourinho will never admit his side are Premiership winners with six games to go, although the chances of that happening are getting forever closer. A win against Arsenal this Sunday will mean Chelsea are thirteen points clear and fourteen points ahead of Manchester United if they manage to beat Everton at the lunchtime kick off. This will mean they only need two points to win the title and end on equal goal difference with Arsenal, although I can only see another win on the horizon with Leicester City, Crystal Palace, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland all seen as reasonably easy pickings. A loss to Arsenal however doesn’t mean Chelsea are close to losing the title, even with Liverpool another tough side yet to play. Only a miracle will see Arsenal win the league over Chelsea in my eyes.

Arsenal Team News:

Arsene Wenger only have three injuries to worry about coming into this tough Premiership fixture, although it will be said that Arsenal are missing influential defender Per Mertesacker who has been solid all year, yet missing this game due to his ankle. Diaby has been out for some time with his calf strain, while Oxlade-Chamberlain is also another long term with a hamstring issue.

Chelsea Team News:

Chelsea are without three strikers for this game with Diego Costa out for the rest of the season with his hamstring yet again. Didier Drogba has joined that list with an ankle injury, while Frenchman Loic Remy also misses out with a calf strain. Which only leaves three youngsters Solanke, Brown and Loftus-Cheek as possible striker options. The only one of those three to play in the Premiership this year is the older of the three Loftus-Cheek.

Arsenal v Chelsea Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Premiership action Sunday evening will certainly be an exciting one with Arsenal welcoming Premiership leaders Chelsea to the beautiful Emirates Stadium. A win for Arsenal will give them some hope of beating Chelsea to the top position, although that would require Chelsea to fail in their chances of a further six winning points.

Both sides are in great form coming into this game and with Chelsea recently beating Manchester United at home it can only aid in their confidence in finishing the season as title winners. It still isn’t over yet as both sides still have tough opponents to play, with the likes of Liverpool against Chelsea and Arsenal having to face Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Arsenal are the favourites to win this Sunday which will make it their tenth win in a row, a statistic that is outstanding especially considering the injury issues they have had throughout the season. Chelsea however do have an issue, with all three of their main strikers out injured. So may have to rely on youth, or even an attacking midfielder such as Hazard to go upfront.

My predictions for Sundays game between Arsenal and Chelsea will see both sides come out with a victory of some sort. Lets face it, Arsenal are certainly due a win against Chelsea with the last coming back in 2011 when they won 5 – 3 at The Bridge. So for my first I am planning to go for Arsenal to win with both sides scoring on the day. The next I am thinking could be a low scoring game with Chelsea just scraping the 1 – 0 win.
