It seems that the game on the road continues to be the main reason for the current tournament position of Arsenal. In the last round, the Gunners played against West Brom. The fight against the outsider showed that there are problems in the attack of the Londoners. For the entire game only four hits hit the target of the gate “thrushes”. At the same time to score Wenger’s charges and failed. But the BBA scored twice. First in his own net, and then into the goal of Arsenal. Draw – 1: 1.
In general, “Arsenal” home performs in the Premier League successfully. In ten home matches, the Gunners scored eight victories. However, if you look closely at who wards Wenger, then this is basically the team from the bottom of the tournament. Of the main competitors managed to beat only “Tottenham” 2: 0. “Manchester United” Londoners lost 1: 3, and with “Liverpool” finished the match in a draw 3: 3.
For the “Chelsea” match of the last round was much more successful. “Blue” literally took out in the home arena “Stoke City” with a score of 5: 0. Did this wards Antonio Conte at home, where they win already in seven games in a row. At the exit last month for Londoners was less successful. For the last four matches, “Chelsea” beat on a visit only “Huddersfield” 3: 1. In duels with “Liverpool” 1: 1 and “Everton” 0-0 managed to catch on a draw, but the London derby with “West Ham” wards Conte lost 0-1.
And yet, six wins in the last eight rounds brought for Chelsea progress in the standings. “Blue” firmly entrenched in the third position, and if successful in the next meeting will be able to climb the second step.
There is practically no loss in the composition of Chelsea. David Luis and Charlie Mussonda have been in the infirmary for a long time.
