Preview of Arsenal vs Chelsea: Premier League, date 22
The Arsenal, located in the sixth place of the Premier League in the Emirates receives its neighbor, Chelsea, who is in third place in the table. The duel between the two teams in London appears as one of the most attractive of the day and key to both in their eagerness to continue in the first places of the English league.
Arsenal want to start the new year with a win that allows them to leave a discreet 2017 behind. Those led by Arsene Wenger come to equalize against bottom side West Bromwich on the last date, and so far they have an irregular season, they have it out even of the next Europa League.
The Gunners also face the duel amid rumors about the possible departure of Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City. The Chilean finishes contract halfway through the year, and the club must say if he wants to receive any money for the Red striker in January or let him go free in a couple of months.
Regarding the team, Wenger continues to rely on Sanchez who will lead the formation before one of the classics of the city. Another that appears as a starter is Alexandre Lacazette. On the other hand, Koscielny, Ozil and Kolasinac are in doubt due to injury, and could be added to the confirmed losses of Monreal, Giroud and Ramsey.
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea have a good chance to return to second place in the table and not allow Manchester City to increase their advantage in the first place. Currently they are located third, two points behind United and further away from the Guardiola team.
It is true that the ‘Blues’ have not had an overwhelming season like the previous one, however, they remain one of the most competitive and tough teams of the competition. Proof of this was the last game where they beat Stoke City 5-0.
In addition, Conte does not have great casualties to face his neighbor and for this Wednesday he will have all his players available. Eden Hazard will return to the starting line-up after a week of rest, and will lead the offensive line of Chelsea along with Álvaro Morata, Willian and Cesc Fabregas.
