Chelsea vs Arsenal will be played on Premier League matchday 15
Chelsea Is Confident It Can Challenge for the Title and Reach the Champions League
After many stumbles that have kept them in the title race but out of the top spots, Chelsea believes they can do it this time. They have been battling since the beginning of the season with ghosts from the past. The painful defeat against Leeds prompted them to take immediate and radical action.
Their new coach, Graham Potter, envisions a victorious Chelsea, a prophecy that they could achieve due to their increasingly solid squad, which will make a difference. New signings such as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, from Spain’s FC Barcelona, promise to carry the London club.
Of course, Chelsea vs Arsenal will not be against just any club. At this point, Arsenal has been the best club in the EPL to date. However, the game at Stanford Bridge may be the edge the Blue Lions need to get closer to their desired results.
For Arsenal, There Is No Impossible: They Want the Title, and They Might Just Get It
Today, Arsenal has big, no-limits dreams. Moreover, they’ve got the hunger for goals with a team that’s been deprived of glory and titles for a long time.
And that hunger is showing this season: five consecutive victories, thirteen goals, and only four conceded were the result of their first matches in this Premier League season.
And while we should not forget that The Gunners‘ past seasons were rough, in the 2021-22 season, their improvement was already noticeable, even if they didn’t climb past the #5 position. But, from 38 matches played, they won 22, drew three, and lost 13, accumulating 69 points. Their scoring streak was also positive: 61 goals for the season while only conceding 48, leaving their record well into the positive.
Chelsea vs Arsenal seems that, although it represents another challenge for the Gunners, it is not an impossible mission for them to overcome.
