After eighteen Premier League games played, Chelsea had accrued eighteen points on the road compared to fourteen at Stamford Bridge, thus illustrating that the Blues’ attacking style of play is actually suited to life on the road.

Team news | League Table | Odds

Perhaps Frank Lampard’s side find more space in behind opposition defences on their travels compared to home games where the opposition will look to provide plenty of deep-lying stubbornness and the team are likely to relish a short trip to the Emirates Stadium.

Chelsea recently claimed a deserved 2-0 win at White Hart Lane where they were the superior side against Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham, with Willian stepping up to the plate and scoring two goals.

Tammy Abraham continues to be a handful in attack, with N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic featuring in the engine room, while Lampard might consider deploying three centre backs which includes Fikayo Tomori.

It might be that Lampard chooses to rotate his squad for this clash, while Arsenal are beginning a new era under Mikel Arteta and it will be interesting to see how the Spaniard sets his team up for this clash.

The new Gunners boss isn’t going to get instant results with the north London side although we should expect the team to be attack-minded and we’re happy to back three or more goals to be scored during the ninety minutes.

After failing to score against Everton and Manchester City, we should see a more vibrant performance, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having plundered thirteen goals this season although most of them were scored in the early part og the campaign.

We’ll go for a high-scoring encounter considering that the Chelsea defence is still prone to mistakes and a recent 3-1 defeat at Everton bore this out.
