Arsenal and Chelsea are playing against each other in a match of round 23 of the Premier League. Both teams are in a fight for the fourth place, which gives rights for playing in the Champions League next season. At the moment, The Gunners are six points behind Chelsea in the standings, and an eventual loss will severely hurt their ambition for returning in the most prestigious European competition.

Arsenal have performed solidly in the derbies of London, at least in their home games. Their last defeat against a city rival in the Premier League was in January 2016, when Chelsea took the three points from Emirates Stadium with a 1-0 victory. Since then The Gunners have played in 12 London derbies at home and had nine wins.

However, recently Arsenal are showing weaknesses in defence and rely more on their attack. The Gunners are allowing too many goals and have just three clean sheets since the start of the season. Unai Emery is playing with three defenders who help the team over the wings, where Alexandre Lacazette and Alex Iwobi have to create chances for goals for their teammates. The problem of this tactic is the lack of quality in the centre of the pitch, as the current midfielders of the team don’t help at best possible way of the defenders of Arsenal. That is precisely how West Ham took the victory against The Gunners, thanks to good performance of Samir Nasri and Marko Arnautović in the central zone.

Chelsea have problems with scoring goals, but we think that they will score at least two on Emirates. The lack of quality striker forced Maurizio Sarri to use Eden Hazard as False Nine. The Belgian can create many problems for Arsenal, exactly where they are most vulnerable, and to bring the three points to The Blues, which are on a run of three consecutive wins in away games. I will back Chelsea Over 1.5 Goals, with Chelsea 2-1 Correct Score.
