Opinion: 3 Ways Arsenal Will Make Chelsea Suffer In Their Next Match

The match between Arsenal and Chelsea is already generating talking points as a new season has begun in the English League. It is the second game of the campaign, and both teams are expected to show tactical power against each other as they have always done in their past encounters.

Chelsea, who are the reigning Champions of Europe, will be planning on creating another big impression with their young team, while Arsenal will be hoping to beat their London rivals to save the blushes of their under-pressure manager. As the Gunners also have more to lose, Arteta is likely to come up with a strong tactical plan, and below are 3 ways his team will make Chelsea suffer.

1. By counter-attacking

Those who conversant with Arteta's game plans will agree that counter-attacks are always part of them, especially when he is playing against the Blues. In the coming match, he might also want to surprise Chelsea's defense with quick goal attempts as his midfielders seems to lack the quality to contain Tuchel's men at the center of the pitch.

This attacking style will make the Blues suffer because of the three-man defense system they use. Many goals have also been conceded by the Stamford bridge team in games against sides that attack abruptly.

2. Deploying a packed midfield

Another method that Arsenal might use against Chelsea is the 3-5-2 formation, which requires the use of four defensive midfielders, and a single attacking midfielder. This way, they can be able to contain speedy forwards like Mason Mount and Pulisic. More of the game will be played in the midfield area, and Chelsea's attacking plans will also suffer suppression.

3. Using fast wing-backs

Using Reece James and Ben Chilwell in wing positions to maintain pressure against opponents is what Chelsea is partly known for. Now, if Arsenal engages fast wing-backs against them next week, their busy attacks can be hindered, and communication might become weak in their team.
