Our prediction for this Premier League match:
There will be fireworks when Arsenal and Chelsea, the two bitter local rivals, face each other at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Blues head into the match following a routine 5-0 win over Stoke City and they are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of the London derby. Antonio Conte’s men recorded six wins in previous seven league fixtures, but beating the Gunners away from home is easier said than done. Arsene Wenger’s troops have been scoring goals for fun of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Chelsea. A lively contest is on the cards and we predict that the two capital clubs are going to play out a high-scoring draw on Matchday 22. A man to watch in the home team will be Alexis Sanchez, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, whilst Arsenal defenders should have Eden Hazard at bay as he is likely to be recalled to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Alexis Sanchez):
Alexis Sanchez is a Chilean football player born on 19th of December 1988. Sanchez started playing football for Cobreloa and played for Colo Colo, River Plate, Udinese and FC Barcelona before he started playing for Arsenal in 2014. The Chilean player is active for the national team as well. Alexis Sanchez is a right winger and is known for his speed, agility and stamina. Alexis Sanchez won several prizes in his career such as the Primera Divisin, World Cup for club teams, the FA cup and the Copa America. In 413 games in his career Alexis Sanchez made 112 goals. Alexis Sanchez’ nickname was give by the Colo Colo fans and is El Nino Maravila which literally means The Wonder Kid. In 2014-2015 Alexis Sanchez was placed in the PFA team of the year and got nominated as Player of the year.
Highlighted Team (Chelsea):
Over the years Chelsea have established themselves as one of the dominant forces in the English Premier League. Roberto Di Matteo helped the team win their first ever Champions League trophy (2011/2012), but it has to be noted that they were more than fortunate to beat Bayern Munich in the title game.
Chelsea have been playing at Stamford Bridge since 1876 and they are a real force to be reckoned with at home. The Blues have won seven FA Cups, five League Cups, two UEFA Cup Winners’ Cups and the UEFA Europa League. Rafael Benitez was in charge of the team that faced Benfica in the 2012/2013 Europa League final, with Branislav Ivanovic scoring the winner for the Blues in the title clash.
After lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, the Blues largely struggled in the next campaign, which saw Jose Mourinho’s second spell with the club come to an end, and Antoine Conte went over to take the reigns for the 2016/2017 season.
