At the top of the table, Chelsea will be looking to get their revenge from their London rivals Arsenal who beat them 3-0 earlier this season. The game takes place at Stamford Bridge in the 24th round of the English Premier League.
Revenge Time For The Blues
The hosts’ form has gone on fire since they got defeated at the Emirates earlier this season. Since then, The Blues went on a winning streak that ended at the hands of Everton two rounds ago. Chelsea have collected a total of 10 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Liverpool away from home where they drew 1-1.
Chelsea are currently sitting in the 1st place in the league table. They have 56 points from 18 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses. The team scored 48 goals and conceded 16 since the start of the season.
David Luiz is still struggling with a knee injury picked up earlier in the season but Antonio Conte cannot risk taking him out of the team just yet. The same is true of Eden Hazard.
A Must Win For The Gunners
The visitors have been shocked last round at home by a loss to Watford. The Gunners repeat their habit of putting good performances in front of big teams and losing to relatively weaker sides. Arsenal have collected a total of 11 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Premier League. Their last league match was against Watford at home where they lost 2-1.
Arsenal are currently sitting in the 3rd place in the league table. They have 47 points from 14 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses. They have scored 51 goals and conceded 25 since the start of the season.
Aaron Ramsey is ruled out for Saturday’s clash with Chelsea after picking up a calf strain in the shock 2-1 home defeat to Watford on Tuesday night. With Granit Xhaka and Santi Cazorla both ruled out too, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should start at the base of their midfield.
