On December 29, Arsenal and Chelsea will meet in the match of the 20th round of the championship of England. The freesupertips.cy believes that “aristocrats” will be better able to prepare for the derby.
It seemed that after a confident away victory over the “spurs,” the crisis was over. But it was not so — another mediocre home defeat from a team that is fighting for survival. The game ahead seems to be there, but it seems not. Is the magic of youth over? Old Willian shone with Tottenham. And there the terrible Kepa misses almost everything possible.
Arsenal is no better. A miraculous transformation did not happen, and it was not possible to win in an equal game with Bournemouth. In the first half, only Mesut Ozilov attacked. Defense plays poorly, and not even the best front line of “cherries” regularly created problems for guests. Arsenal is acting very hesitantly against the technical and fast rivals. What goals were conceded from Norwich, Brighton, and Southampton!
The “veterans” are not good at positional attacking, but the whole point is that in the derby Arsenal will not be a “bus”. If they did not do this against City, then this will not happen with Chelsea. There are huge pressure and many expectations from the fans. “Gunners” burned out many times due to much pressure this season.
The blue ones are much superior to Arsenal xG: 37.16 – 25.08, xGA – 21.97 – 27.64. The huge advantage of the guests.
Lampard is not bad at preparing the team for essential matches: they took the ball from City, beat Tottenham, gave the fight to Liverpool, and largely lost to Manchester United. The game with the “spurs” convinces us to choose the direction of Chelsea. Arsenal is too bad to expect victory in this game, even at home. Artyet has a massive amount of work.
Everything is effortless in this meeting: Arsenal will run trying to attack, score and win, and Chelsea will take advantage of the enormous cracks in defense of the Gunners and catch fast-paced a couple of times in counterattacks.
Our prediction: Chelsea win with handicap (0)
