As Arsenal play host to Chelsea, fans would troop into the Stadium to see things for themselves as both teams meet. It promises to be a huge London affair as a host of top managers have featured in this fixture in time past.
Managers like Jose Mourinho has faced up with former Arsenal boss Arsenal Wenger as Unai Emery have also tested the might of Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri on different occasion.
However, it will be a different scenario here as these EPL giants meet on the pitch. Following the contest in view, we evaluate the reasons why this fixture will largely trend in EPL this weekend.
Whenever Arsenal faces up with Chelsea much is always expected irrespective of the match venue.
It’s always a big game to behold as both clubs have the pedigree to draw crowds and interest across the globe. They would be expected to produce a quality performance as both sides square up on Sunday.
It’s obvious why the anticipation is high ahead of this fixture as the two teams possess top-class players in their rank.
Chelsea may have won 3-0 against Crystal Palace with Arsenal losing 2-0 to newly promoted side Brantford City.
But this would not affect the match vibe for this meeting as quality players are expected to be on show for both sides at the Emirates Stadium.
Massive transfer deliberation
The two sides will use the match to check up on the progress they’ve made in the ongoing transfer window.
It promises to be a show of best decision reality for both sides as the clubs’ new acquisition will be expected to feature in the contest.
While Thomas Tuchel would probably hand a debut to Romelu Lukaku, Arsenal will be keen to see how former Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White fares against the big sides.
All this would form the fulcrum of the teams’ assessment as both London clubs also aim to identify further areas of reinforcement at the end of this match between Arsenal and Chelsea on Sunday.
London derby dominance
The two things both sides would not want to do when they face off with each other is to admit superiority against each other in the contest. It’s no surprise as to why this is so as both sides are from the London hemisphere.
It has necessitated a level of a bust-up between the two as they rekindle the rivalry well accustomed to past London derby fixtures.
It doesn’t get each easy even on the Merseyside derby match between the likes of Everton and Liverpool.
So expect the Arsenal and Chelsea London affair to produce more interest and intensity as both sides clash on the pitch from a London derby perspective.
