Arsenal Vs Chelsea

The Emirates stadium will be rocking this evening as London neighbours Arsenal and Chelsea slug it out in the star fixture for this weekend in the Premier League.

This London derby could have huge implications on the top four race with Chelsea currently holding a six-point advantage over their hosts in the final Champions League spot.

The Gunners have lost four of their last eight games in all competitions, having previously gone 21 unbeaten, but have not lost in the league at home since the opening day.

Chelsea have won three successive Premier League away matches – all by a single goal – and a fourth tonight would be their best run in the league since December 2016.
