Arsenal vs Chelsea 2016: Preview for Premier League clash.
It’s the first London derby of 2016 and if you’re even a casual follower of the game, you must be aware that this is the granddaddy of all football derbies. Only Spanish El Clasico and Milan derby are ranked more ferocious than the London clubs’ rivalry.
Alas, there will be no classic Mourinho-Wenger feuds over the touchline this time, but still there will be plenty of action as the two London clubs lock horns this Sunday evening for three crucial points.
Chelsea’s hopes of defending their Premier League title may have long been smothered, but they could yet strike a lethal blow to Arsenal’s hopes of ending their seemingly endless Premier League drought. Gunners currently sit at the crown of Premier League table, with 19 massive points separating them from Blues who are trudging sluggishly at the 14th spot in Premier League ladder.
But as far as statistics go, Chelsea have been pretty dominant over their rivals with Arsenal having won only 4 of their 23 Premier League meetings in past decade. Even last September, when Chelsea were in the midst of disastrous start to the season, they still managed to deliver a 2-0 beating to the Emirates crew.
Hence, it is no surprise then that Wenger sees Sunday’s showdown as massive test for Gunners in their title dreams. However, with Ozil & Sanchez expected to be back in squad for the much-anticipated derby match, Wenger insists that his team will dominate this Sunday over Hiddink’s crew.
“It is another game where people look at us and see how we behave because, even if Chelsea are not in the best position, you look at their squad,” Arsene Wenger spoke in his pre-match press conference. “It is a big game because of the quality of players on the pitch and it has a big importance to us as well because we play at the Emirates and we know how important it will be important to win these games.
“We have certainly proved our battling potential [this season] through big solidarity, through great togetherness and as well because we are ambitious and we have more experience than in the past in the team. One of the advantages of having experienced players is that they know that sometimes it’s just about battling and not always only about playing well.”
