Chelsea Vs Arsenal Head To Head Stats And Records: The London derby is once again upon the Premier League in the midweek fixture.
Arsenal’s last match against Chelsea ended on an unfortunate end as the Blues clinched the victory out of their hands with two goals in the last phase of the game, even though the Gunners remained in lead for the most part of the game.
It was one of the lowest moments for the North London club this season amidst all the crises. Now, Arsenal would be hoping to compensate for the loss in this return fixture but the game is away from home which is a significant disadvantage.
However, Chelsea is also to deliver results in the recent fixtures, so Arsenal can aim to hurt Chelsea, just like they did to Manchester United, who did not expect such a splendid performance by the Gunners.
At the start of the month, Arsenal outclassed the Red Devils at their own den and it could easily be said as the best performance by them in this season.
But it’s not easy to trust Arsenal on consistency as they played two draws in the next two Premier League matches. Since it is a derby game, Mikel Arteta has an uphill task at the Stamford Bridge.
Frank Lampard had a good start to the season but the team has been struggling to keep up with the results and with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Wolverhampton lurking near top-4, Chelsea can stumble under pressure.
Nevertheless, coming onto the derby game, Chelsea and Arsenal share a fierce rivalry, especially since the last two decades, let’s look at their head to head figures ahead of the match.
