Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening in what already looks to be a crucial battle for the Champions League places come the end of the season

Chelsea host Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening with both sides keen on taking a significant step towards the Champions League next term. The Blues are currently sitting third in the table and following a significant stutter over the past few weeks, appear to be finally be back on track.

Thomas Tuchel’s men followed up their 6-0 thumping of Southampton by reaching the FA Cup Final with a win over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium and will hope to continue that positive momentum as they turn their attentions back to Premier League action. Their opponents Arsenal are in a vulnerable position having lost their last three league games.

The recent defeat against Southampton saw the Gunners miss out on the chance to close the gap to Tottenham Hotspur – Antonio Conte’s men being downed by Brighton. That all means that Mikel Arteta’s men remain sixth in the current standings and just three points behind their north London rivals in the race for a top four berth.

However, they do face a significant test of their European credentials against a Chelsea side who batted them aside with ease earlier this season. Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Reece James secured a straight-forward win at the Emirates for Tuchel’s Blues back in August as the Gunners’ poor start to the campaign continued.

One aspect that will give Arsenal some slight confidence though is their recent good form at Stamford Bridge. The Gunners earned a big three points in west London during their last trip – Emile Smith Rowe the beneficiary of a poor Jorginho error to score the winning goal.

It certainly remains to be seen then which way the result will go this time around. You can find all of the details of how to keep up to date with the clash at Stamford Bridge below.
