Premier League: Arsenal vs. Chelsea
Arsenal vs. Chelsea Free Live Stream— Arsenal will face London rivals Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium this afternoon (16:00 GMT) in a crucial battle at the top of the Premier League.
Both teams have been on a relatively outstanding run, but the West Londoners have been more impressive in their respective 2 games played after the international break.
Chelsea and Arsenal have also secured their qualification for the last 16 the Champions League in midweek but the Blues’ task at Porto was tougher than the North Londoners’ home victory over Standard Liege, and may therefore have been more vital in terms of preparation for this afternoon’s fixture.
The Gunners are in 4th place with 25 points and anything but a victory this afternoon will mean that Arsene Wenger’s side will get far from the top spot early in the campaign.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men, on the other hand, have 11 victories and 2 losses so far, and will be gunning to add another 3 points to their tally of 33. If they win, it would also have a huge impact on their odds to win the title.
Strikers Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka are in their top form and they will be looking to exploit any flaws they find in the Arsenal defense.
Talking about Anelka, the 30-year-old French striker is set to sign a whopping 120,000-pounds-a-week extension deal with the West Londoners.
“I hope to sign a new contract soon,” he told British tabloid News of the World. “I am very happy at Chelsea. I have found a home. Ever since I left Real Madrid, I wanted to find a big club again and I have with Chelsea.”
UPDATE: Drogba scored twice to lift the Blues to a convincing 3-0 victory against Arsenal in the late Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.
