Premier League: Arsenal vs Chelsea – Team News, Lineups & Prediction.
Arsenal will host Chelsea in the Premier League on Tuesday Night, 2nd May 2023 pitting two London rivals with vastly different fortunes.
While the Gunners may have lost their footing in the title race, they are still in a position that any London team would kill for, especially a Chelsea team that has not yet mathematically secured their place in the Premier League next season.
Arsenal will appreciate the opportunity to stretch Chelsea’s winless streak to nine games, but a win here would allow Frank Lampard and the Blues to make amends with their fans.

Arsenal vs Chelsea score prediction
Neither of these sides are in particularly good form, and yet there isn’t even a debate about which of them comes in as overwhelming favourites.
Arsenal aren’t dismantling teams like they used to, but they’re scoring goals and causing plenty of problems. Doing so against a historically flimsy Chelsea side should lead them to the comfortable victory they need to keep their title charge alive.
From a Chelsea perspective, even the most optimistic of fans will be bracing themselves for defeat, but supporters will be watching for an improved performance. There are plenty of players who still need to prove they deserve to stay at the club next season, and if they can’t get up for this game, then there may not be a place for them for much longer.
