Arsenal and Chelsea Head to head history and results

Arsenal can move four points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table with a win tonight over beleaguered Chelsea.

It appeared that Mikel Arteta’s side had ceded control in the title race following the loss to Aston Villa earlier this month, the Gunners can pile pressure back on the chasing champions.

Their victory at Wolves was a great response to the Villa defeat and their Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Though it’s difficult to look past City given their slight advantage in the race, Arsenal must not fall away in the dying embers of what has been another strong campaign.

The Blues, meanwhile, can now only qualify for Europe by way of Premier League finish.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side ran out 6-0 winners over Everton last week before impressing to some degree in their FA Cup semi-final loss to City at Wembley on Saturday. Cutting edge, however, remains a problem.

Jurrien Timber is the only confirmed absentee for the Gunners but is nearing a return to action after recovering from a serious knee injury sustained on his debut. He returned to action for the club’s U21s this week.

Pochettino has denied that star man Palmer is carrying an injury, but he is confirmed as a doubt due to illness. Christopher Nkunku is close to a comeback, though this game may come too soon.

Arsenal wins: 83

Draws: 59

Chelsea wins: 66.
