The two London giants meet for the second time this season over the weekend. It could certainly go either way, but here is why Arsenal could come out on top against the Blues.
1. Stronger Defence
It may seem a little stupid to say after their 6-3 thrashing by Manchester City, but up until that game Arsenal boasted the best defensive record in the Premier League, and with Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba all far from their best, they will have a hard time getting past the Arsenal rear guard. A good defensive showing from the Gunners would see them nullify Chelsea and could at least earn them a point.
