Arsenal Vs. Chelsea Overview
The result fell very badly among the supporters of Arsenal, since the opponent is the collegiate of the contest and did not win for several weeks. Above it is speculated that in this month there would be the exit of Alexis Sánchez.
For his part, the Chelsea – a well-known Premier League champion – only thinks about taking the three points from the house of Wenger’s pupils in order to gain a second place in the standings.
The championship leader is Manchester City, but Chelsea does not lose hope of reaching it in this stretch. Although for this to be the case, the box ‘sky blue’ should fall consecutively to their future opponents.
The only concern of Chelsea is the continuity of the Belgian star Eden Hazard. The latest reports from the European press point to his possible departure to Real Madrid. In case an offer arrives, the ‘blue’ directive can not refuse.
