Chelsea vs Arsenal match preview.

Thomas Tuchel’s side overcame a Champions League heartbreak to reach the FA Cup final, where they will compete for a second trophy this season. Chelsea have won their past three games in all competitions, but have lost their last two home games against Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta’s side were defeated at Southampton on Saturday after failing to capitalize on Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 home loss to Brighton and Hove Albion. Mikel Arteta has now presided over four defeats in five games as the north London club struggles to finish in the top four. This is a crucial week in Arsenal’s quest for a top-four finish, but they could slip up again.
