Arsenal take on the road as the unfortunate foes of Chelsea on Thursday, April 21 as they attempt to redeem themselves after three consecutive losses in the Premier League. So far, the Gunners have lost four out of their last five Premier League games. The Blues are currently enjoying the eight-point gap from those aiming for a top-four finish, which they have gained over securing their place in the FA cup final on the weekend. This might just be the finishing touch for their qualifications to the Champions League next season with a win. 


Last Sunday, Chelsea defeated Crystal Palace in an effort to set up an FA Cup final against Liverpool. They beat Real Madrid in midweek prior to that, closely exiting the Champions League. Thomas Tuchel’s men were able to win 9 games out of 11 which only proves that Chelsea’s form has been decent. The team has also scored 11 goals in their last 3 games, with Kai Havertz scoring in four out of his last five league matches. Romelu Lukaku and Reece James managed to strike in a 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture across the capital which put Arsenal’s 3-game win streak to an end. 


Starting off with the positive side for Arsenal, they have lost only one of the previous five meetings with Chelsea which gained them four points from their last two matches in west London. Unfortunately, the Gunners will most likely be outgunned by the buoyant Blues in the upcoming match. Losing 1-0 at Southampton last Saturday and having their third defeat, the recent Arsenal is not exactly fit for Champions League. Arteta is considering a formula that fans have been suggesting– moving Gabriel Martinelli into a central role and Emile Smith Rowe back in on the left-hand side. With Martinelli’s 5 goals, 3 assists, and Smith Rowe’s 9 goals and 2 assists, the reeling Arsenal might be able to turn things around. 


Despite Arsenal’s efforts to end their three-game skid, they might show shakiness for the upcoming match especially since Chelsea’s form is currently better than the Gunners. Arteta’s men have been inconsistent ever since the international break, so we can only see Tuchel’s men ending up as winners for this game.
