Arsenal could hold the top spot in the Premier League rankings for at least 48 hours this weekend when they travel to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea, a rival team from London, on Saturday night. The only thing keeping Mikel Arteta’s team above Tottenham Hotspur, whose former head coach Mauricio Pochettino is only now beginning to establish himself in the blue half of West London, is a lower goal-scorer total.
Chelsea vs Arsenal
Right now, Chelsea is having their finest run of the season. For the first time this season, the Blues have triumphed in their past three games. After defeating Burnley 4-1 away the previous game, Mauricio Pochettino’s team appears to have overcome their early-season difficulties. After their last two games away from home, they are currently back at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea hasn’t found Stamford Bridge to be a nice hunting ground, though. In their four league home games, the Londoners have only won once and have suffered twice. Out of their eight league games thus far, Chelsea has won three. They now have 11 points, five points less than the top five.
Arsenal and league leaders Tottenham are the only two clubs that have not yet lost this season. Arsenal is currently riding high. They have won six of their eight games, and their only deficit from the top spot is goals scored. After defeating Manchester City 1-0, Mikel Arteta’s team was flying high going into the international break.
They should be motivated to keep up their recent dominance over Chelsea after their first victory over the reigning champions since 2015. The Gunners have defeated their London rivals in their last three competitive games, winning two of those games while they were guests.
Goals might be the way forward for the Gunners after Chelsea emerged victorious in their first home game of the season, a 1-1 draw with Liverpool.
Recent results indicate that Arsenal has dominated this rivalry, having won five of their past six Premier League encounters.
Nevertheless, despite Chelsea’s weak defense, they have been producing plenty of opportunities, and both sides have scored in seven of their last ten competitive games.
Given the attacking skill on display and the fact that it worked in Arsenal’s league matches against Manchester United and Tottenham earlier in the season, both teams to score appears like a solid wager even though it is an even money chance.
Although the Gunners have won their first three away games, they have faced weak competition, and it should be noted that they lost four of their final five road games of the previous season.
Under Mikel Arteta, Arsenal has blossomed, and they plan to prove themselves this year. Players who can be deadly on their day, such as Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli, will try to step up this weekend.
Although Chelsea has been able to settle in this month, they will be playing against one of the top teams in the Premier League right now. Arsenal enters this game with the upper hand because of their stellar play this season.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
