Arsenal vs Chelsea: Can Arsenal Win Against Chelsea?

If you are a follower of the English Premier League then you will be looking forward to enjoy two of the big matches tomorrow. First, there will be a game between Liverpool against Everton where the game will be televised, and in the next one, Chelsea will take on Arsenal.

Last week, Arsenal emerged victorious in the highly anticipated match against Manchester City, so many people are asking if they will win again. This win was especially significant because it was their first over Manchester City under Mikel Arteta and it was seen as turning point for the whole club.

Arsenal has made an excellent beginning to the season with the club achieving six wins and two draws. They are no longer safe just yet. If they beat Chelsea in the next match, they will be leading the league table. This win now proves Arsenal to be a force, and fans are starting to believe that they could still win the title this season, contrary to earlier prophecies that did not project this.

It is difficult to overstate Arsenal's victory over City by highlighting how well the team defended. They did just four shots during the match, all of which coming from none of Haaland, the star player of City. William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhães exhibited impressive form in not giving Haaland much to run on. Now, Arteta, Arsenal's coach, will be crossing his fingers and hope that the toe injury Saliba got recently and has to sit out the France squad would not be an issue when they play their next game.

It is not only the Arsenal defense that gives out other work off the ball. Their captain, Martin Odegaard has been very brilliant in relieving the defenders of the opponents and in applying pressure on the opponent's goal. It's him who has topped the pressures chart, being the hardest-working player with 253 pressures this season. The fact that he is the only player to make 100 pressures both in midfield (111 pressures) and in attack (112 pressures) inside the pitch is simply amazing.

On Satuday, the Ødegaard will collaborate with Rice in the middle for the Arsenal, while the Arsenal manager has to make some hard decision about his attacking players. Arsenal is looking forward to the return of Bukayo Saka, but there is also the necessity to wait for an update whether Leandro Trossard will not be available due to his thigh injury. If Saka gets back, it is obvious that Gabriel Jesus is going to be in the center and that means Eddie Nketiah is out of starting list.

As Arsenal gets ready to face Chelsea, they’ll come across a very "familiar foe" — Mauricio Pochettino, the former Tottenham Hotspur manger. Pochettino, in the absence of wins in North London, has a great record against Arsenal when they play at home. In addition, he did not do it once but has been winning every Premier League home game against Arsenal His time at Southampton and Spurs yielded three victories and that draw up against the Arsenal.

When Pochettino took up the management role with Spurs, he came up against Arsenal on 11 occasions in the English Premier League in terms of North London derbies. However, throughout those matches his team had 3 winnings, 6 draws and 2 losses. As for the points of the score, both teams have scored and conceded 15 goals overall in total across the matches.

Head-to-Head Statistics: Arsenal vs Chelsea Teams

Previously, Chelsea came equipped with a winning record in Premier League fixtures against Arsenal, but the tide has turned in recent times.

During the last 3 years, Chelsea have experienced defeat in 5 out of their last 6 league meetings with Arsenal; one victory being the only exception. They took the same number of losses as they lost in all their previous 25 confrontations with Arsenal, where they lost only four times and drew 11 times.

Arsenal has something to be also proud with the record of rivalry matches between themselves and other teams from the capital. They had no one opposition in their last 15 PL matches with other London based clubs, as they won 11 times drawing four times. This is and the second-longest unbeaten stretch since the Premier League was founded. Chelsea achieved a 20-game unbeaten streak during 2004-2006, while Arsenal managed to break their record of going unbeaten for 35 top-flight London derbies between 2001 and 2005.

Arteta who is currently the Arsenal manager compares favorably to other managers where against Chelsea he has won an impressive 62.50% of his premier league games (with five wins, one draw and two losses). Being the adversary of Chelsea more than five times in Premier League, only Kenny Dalglish (76.9%) and Pep Guardiola (64.3%) have better win rate in this Manchester City that Frank Lampard is managing.

The two squads had their last encounter in May at the Emirates Stadium where Ødegaard registered a phenomenal brace to help Arsenal beat Chelsea 3-1. Each one of the Arsenal’s players, namely, Gabriel Jesus and Noni, was fortunate to score a goal that day.
