The Gunners will take on their London rivals Chelsea today at the Emirates Stadium at 8pm in the second leg of the Premier League game between these two bitter rivals.
The form of the two clubs leading into the London derby is nothing to write home about; Arsenal have drawn 3 and lost 1 of their last 4 games to hand the PL title to Manchester City on a platter, thus dropping to 2nd on the Premier League table.
Chelsea on the other hand has lost all 5 games managed by Frank Lampard since the Englishman was appointed caretaker head coach by Todd Boehly, scoring just a single deflected goal (against Brighton) during that run.
Arsenal will be hoping to do the double over Chelsea after having defeated them at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season thanks to a lone goal by Gabriel. A win today will take Arsenal top of the Premier League table again, while they hope Manchester City drop points against either West Ham or Leeds United.
In order to bag a win against the Blues today, Mikel Arteta will have to be firm in dropping a few players. Players like Gabriel Jesus ought to start on the bench for Leandro Trossard.
In fact,the Gunners were bagging points and Premier League wins before Gabriel Jesus returned from injury,with his recent tendency to miss the easiest of goals not helping matters.
Oleksandr Zinchenko has also been found wanting more than once defensively, but it will be up to Mikel Arteta to decide if he wants to bench the Ukrainian and play Tierney in that left back position,or if he wants to risk playing Zinchenko against Chelsea pacy wingers.
A good lineup and proper tactics will see Arsenal thrash Chelsea today to continue the Blues losing streak under Frank Lampard.
Here is my predicted lineup to take on Chelsea tomorrow at the Emirates;
