ARS vs CHE Fantasy Prediction: Arsenal and Chelsea reignite their rivalry with Chelsea outright favourites in this matchup.
Managing to curb a two match losing spree with a 3-0 win against West Ham, Chelsea know that they are yet to really regain their form from the last month. Despite finding the net on three occasions, the club was far from convincing in the skirmish with the West Ham making life extremely tricky for Chelsea.
However, they managed to get the job done against their neighbours, a win which instil confidence in Chelsea ahead of today’s showdown. Taking on a club from London for the second time in a row, Chelsea will look to lay siege to the city with another win.
Traditionally one of their most hated rivals, for Chelsea a win against Arsenal today is more than just three points. This is a clash which Chelsea have typically hated losing and will come out with everything they have in their repertoire.
And with Arsenal losing all semblance about themselves as the screws completing come undone in the club’s ranks, Chelsea shouldn’t have any qualms in pulling off a win.
Thomas and Pierre are out with injury problems for Arsenal.
Hakim, Reece and Ben will all miss out for Chelsea owing to their injuries.

ARS vs CHE Fantasy Prediction
Bernd Leno from Arsenal will be the first pick for us for this encounter. The shot stopper has yet again been overworked but as has become customary of him now, he’s had little trouble in quelling shots directed his way.
Back to their cleansheet ways the last time around, Chelsea will be looking to emulate that performance come today as well. They are up against an Arsenal team which is amongst one of the worst attacking units in the league, a side Chelsea can easily clobber.
We’ll be opting for the trio of Cesar Azpilicueta, Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva from Chelsea while Arsenal’s Gabriel Magalhaes is our pick from the home team.
Helping himself to an assist against West Ham, Mason Mount once again showed why Frank Lampard has entrusted him so much. He finds company in Christian Pulisic who pulled off the one assist as well in that encounter.
Arsenal on the other hand will see us immerse in the picks of Dani Ceballos and Bukayo Saka. The two can not only turnover possession from attack to defence but have the capability of doing the dirty work at the back as well.
Despite him clearly struggling for form, Timo Werner managed to help himself to an assist the last time around. He is partnered by Tammy Abraham who had the two goals in the side’s bygone 3-0 triumph.
Captain and vice-captain
Werner’s four goals and four assists make him our captain while Pulisic is the vice-captain.
Leno, Kurt, Silva, Cesar, Gabriel, Saka, Mount, Pulisic, Dani, Tammy, Werner.
