3 Thing Arsenal Should Do Against Chelsea To Continue Their Unbeaten Run

As Arsenal take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in the battle of the undefeated, viewers are set to have a cracker of a match. With Manchester City just managing a draw at home against them, it is Arsenal that everyone is looking at hopefully to stop Chelsea, who looks just unstoppable at the moment. Both teams would love to keep their unbeaten streak going, but for Arsenal the task would be an extremely tough one. Stamford Bridge has been a fortress for Chelsea and to add to Arsenal’s woes injuries have hit them hard with Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta being the new entries to the list and Alexis Sanchez also doubtful after suffering a knock in midweek.

So, here are 3 things Arsenal should do to come away from Stamford Bridge with a full or partial share of the points:

  1. LOCK DIEGO COSTA

Chelsea Fabregas Costa

Something that is much easier said than done. The Spanish hitman is in some outstanding form in his debut season for Chelsea. Costa has consistently tormented the oppositions with his immense strength and incredible aerial abilities and is cruising way ahead in the Premier League Top Scorers list with 8 goals in 6 matches already.

But against Manchester City, Costa struggled to get past the duo of Vincent Kompany and Elequim Mangala, as the City centre-backs outclassed him with some really good defending and Chelsea were able to go ahead only when City were down to 10 men. Arsene Wenger should therefore make sure his centre-backs Laurent Koscielny and Per Metasacker keeps Costa at bay. The Arsenal cenre-backs have come under a lot of flaks recently for their sloppy play but have managed to carry on without much damage. But against Costa and Chelsea, they simply cannot afford any slip ups whatsoever.
