If Jose Mourinho needs any match to announce that Chelsea are not the heavyweight underdog this season, then he must do all he can to make sure he doesn’t loose his next “top4” match in this case Arsenal. I personally believe, a win over Arsenal can bring back all the boost Chelsea has been looking for and a loss will just zero the hopes and trust me, Stamford bridge will fall in all corners.
Chelsea as we all know have had a shocking, amazing (add your adjective?) start to the Premier league and while Jose maintains that his team plays better than the results, we hope they start claiming the points now. Just maybe the Champions league victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv which ended 4-0 at Stamford bridge will help the moral around the bridge this weekend. Willian, Oscar, Costa and Fabregas were all on the score sheet.
Arsenal were able to get a 2-0 win last week at home but lost to Zagreb in the Champions league stage match with Oliver Giroud being sent off. I do not think that will slow down their Premier league moral because they have picked their points well after the loss to west ham early in the season.
One thing Mourinho and Chelsea fans will try to hang on to is that Arsene Wenger has not beaten Jose in a Premier League match so again this match gives us something to look up to. A record broken by Wenger or an elongated record by Jose? Let’s not forget that Arsenal won Chelsea at the Community shield so even Wenger knows Chelsea is beatable.
Chelsea’s form makes it had to give them win predictions of late so a Double Chance on Chelsea should work or a Chelsea no bet draw.
Both Team To Score will be Yes – Chelsea has not managed to keep a clean sheet this season.
