This weekend, Chelsea hosts the league leaders, Arsenal, at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are currently sixth in the EPL standings, and they need to maintain their position in the top four races. The Blues will be without two of their key wingers, Ben Chilwell and Reece James, but they have a better chance of winning the London derby this weekend for the following reasons:
1. Saka Concerns for Arsenal
The Gunners are concerned about Bukayo Saka’s fitness after he suffered an injury against Nottingham Forest last week. Saja has been Mikel Arteta’s most important player, and his absence will be felt greatly.
2. Chelsea has home field advantage.
Chelsea will host Arsenal at their home stadium, and Stamford Bridge will be packed. The Blues fans will be eager to create a hostile environment for the Gunners in order to influence Mikel Arteta’s game plan.
3. King of the Capital of London
Chelsea has dominated the London Derby in recent years, and this weekend they will host Arsenal in a North West London Derby. Both teams have a fierce rivalry, but Chelsea has been the most successful club over the last decade.
