Head To Head
Wednesday’s game represents the 203rd meeting between Chelsea and Arsenal in all competitions, with the Gunners boasting 79 wins compared to the Blues’ 65.
A 3-1 success over a Chelsea team led by Frank Lampard saw the Gunners stretch their unbeaten run against the Blues across all competitions to three games, but they have not won at Stamford Bridge since the 2011-12 season, when Robin Van Persie bagged a hat-trick.
Having overseen a win at the Emirates Stadium earlier in the season, 39-year-old Arteta could become the youngest manager to win both top-flight games in a season against Chelsea since then-Sheffield Wednesday boss Trevor Francis did so at the age of 37 in 1992.
Prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal
While Arsenal enjoyed success against Lampard’s Chelsea, they are yet to face the resilient and free-flowing unit marshalled by Tuchel, whose side are the clear favourites for this derby.
Arteta will continue to be scrutinised following every underwhelming result from hereon in, but the Spaniard’s side may simply be overwhelmed by Chelsea’s strength in depth and dogged defence, so we can only back the hosts to comfortably get the job done.
