Whichever way you choose to look at this, it’s a game between two teams on poor form. One could return to the top of the table with a win, and the other could be thrown into the relegation conversation with a loss.
Arsenal has lost the advantage at the top, and for the first time in months, they have gone four games without a win.
It’s a run that has knocked them off the top of the log.
By the time the Gunners kick off at the Emirates on Tuesday night, they will be second on the log, and only a win can keep their faint hopes alive.
How did it get this bad for Chelsea?
How did a team that won the Champions League two seasons ago suddenly no longer know how to win a football game?
It’s so bad that Chelsea has lost every single game they have played under Frank Lampard, including two legs of Champions League football to Real Madrid.
There’s so much quality in the Chelsea side, but they have refused to click.
Joao Felix and Kai Havertz have refused to deliver the goals, and something seems off with Raheem Sterling.
Mhkalo Mudryk and the new boys still haven’t found their feet, but can they springboard from the game against Arsenal?
Arsenal must beat Chelsea and heap pressure on Manchester City.
In the loss to the champions in midweek, the Gunners didn’t measure up; they were two steps behind.
If they want to beat Chelsea, a team that has nothing to lose, they have to go for it from the start.
Can Arsenal afford to rest some tired players? Why not?
Bukayo Saka and Thomas Partey could start from the bench if Mikel Arteta wants to learn a thing or two from Brighton’s sensational performance over the weekend.
While Reis Nelson, Trossard, and Jorginho could come in as fresh breath for Arsenal.
Chelsea hasn’t helped their own cause; they could have hired a long-term manager and allowed him to see the season out as a learning curve.
To what end is the movement of Chelsea from 12th?
They can’t qualify for Europe anymore and realistically can’t get relegated, but to what end?
Arsenal may have lost the league title to City, but can they finish strongly?
Absolutely yes, and it will start with how they try to handle Chelsea.
The Blues might also want to prove they’re not a spent force; this should make us enjoy the game.
Watch out for Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli; Mudryk could also pick this game to show why Arsenal should have signed him.
N’golo Kante will be a force in the midfield, but what defence shape will Chelsea present to avoid Arsenal doing a double over them?
