Chelsea vs Arsenal: Prediction, kick-off time, team news, h2h results
Written by Ossy on November 5, 2022
Graham Potter has now tasted defeat in charge of the club he took over in September and, while his team got back on track in midweek, the visit of Mikel Arteta’s League leaders is cause for concern.
Arsenal have steadily improved their record at Stamford Bridge over recent Chelsea meetings and have proven they can beat the League’s biggest teams already this season.
Having seen just how easily Chelsea were torn apart against Brighton, the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Bukayo Saka must be licking their lips.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The Premier League game is scheduled for a 12pm GMT kick-off time on Sunday November 6, 2022.
Chelsea vs Arsenal team news
Ben Chilwell has joined Chelsea’s lengthy injury list and could now miss around three months of action after a hamstring problem. Reece James, N’Golo Kante and Wesley Fofana are also unavailable.
Edouard Mendy is expected to play in goal, with Aubameyang leading the line.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have Oleksandr Zinchenko fit again, although Takehiro Tomiyasu is injured. Kieran Tierney, however, may start so Arteta does not need to rush Zinchenko back.
Elsewhere, Arteta’s first choice starting XI largely picks itself. Saka, Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli will likely continue in the front three, with Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka behind them and in front of a well-established defence.
Chelsea vs Arsenal prediction
Arsenal appear to have broken through the hoodoo to have hung over them at Stamford Bridge of late and have already taken big scalps this season. With Chelsea floundering against Brighton, an away win seems likely.
Arsenal to win 2-0.
