Arsenal has had the better head-to-head record over Chelsea in recent games, as the Blues have been beaten by Arsenal in the last three games.


 

Arsenal defeated Chelsea home and away last season, and Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea was even beaten by the Gunners at Stamford Bridge towards the end of the 2020-21 campaign.


However, Arsenal legend Ian Wright thinks this weekend’s fixture between Chelsea and Arsenal is different, as he believes that the Blues are in the better form under Tuchel plus the addition of Romelu Lukaku.

“I remember Arsenal won twice against Chelsea last year and it changed Arsenal's direction, Bukayo Saka came in, Emile Smith Rowe came in, and we started to create,” Wright stated on the Ringer podcast.


“We're dealing with a different creature now. In one of the Jurassic Park movies, they produced a hybrid dinosaur, and we're dealing with one of them. We're up against a Chelsea squad that is well prepared right now. When another great manager, Thomas Tuchel, arrived, we witnessed this.


“He was able to straighten out the defense. And the fact that you put Romelu Lukaku into the mix, into a confident squad, makes me nervous. Chelsea currently believes it can win the Premier League.”
