Chelsea will welcome Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night as both sides look to earn all three points in the London derby. The Blues managed to secure an impressive 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium last Sunday which will keep them in high spirits ahead of this game. In contrast, the Gunners suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Southampton last weekend, so they will be eager to right the wrongs in midweek.

Chelsea vs Arsenal: Talking Tactics

Thomas Tuchel will set his side up in a 3-4-3 formation and could ask his players to get a stranglehold in the game and create enough decent chances to win this London derby.

Mikel Arteta will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and might instruct his men to keep a solid defensive shape and try to hurt the home team on the break.

Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney are both out of action due to injuries. Alexandre Lacazette is also expected to miss this game after testing positive with Covid-19.

Arsenal Predicted XI

Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Xhaka, Lokonga; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Martinelli

Key Men


Thiago Silva needs to have a good game on the defensive end of the field if Chelsea are to keep a clean sheet in midweek. Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden up top.


The defensive performance of Ben White and Gabriel could go a long way in determining the fate of this game. Martin Odegaard will have to find a way to create some decent chances in the final third.
