Arsenal vs Chelsea: 3 Things That Hiddink Must Do To Beat The Gunners
A clash between two of the biggest teams in the country but suffering different fortunes, while Arsenal have the chance to go on top of the league table with a win over Chelsea, the Blues can only hope to close down the gap between them and the top half of the Premier League table.
Chelsea haven’t had the greatest season so far and even their mini revival under interim manager Guus Hiddink came to a stutter against Everton thanks to a 3-3 draw. Chelsea though were lucky to get one point from the game as John Terry scored in the last minute when he was offside.
Arsenal though are in great form and are the team favoured to lift the Premier League crown this season and will be looking for revenge when they lost to Chelsea in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
Guus Hiddink and Chelsea need a big win and if they can defeat Arsenal, it could provide them the push they need to get into the European places. This could be a rather nasty game on display and here are three things that Guus Hiddink must do to get the better of Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.
- Start with Diego Costa
The last time these two sides met, it was Diego Costa who played a vital role for Chelsea’s win. Costa might not have been the one who scored both goals but he got under the skin of the Arsenal defence and that saw the implosion of Gabriel Paulista and saw him getting sent off.
Diego should have seen a red earlier but if the referee doesn’t see it, it is fair game. Arsene Wenger spoke earlier about his defenders being wary of Costa and his antics and that could well be the way that Chelsea get the better of their ex-goalkeeper Petr Cech and his new team.
