Arsenal players have seriously started preparing for the new competitive year, and the duel with Chelsea will be their fifth friendly match. They won all four previous matches and showed a high level of realization, since they scored at least two goals in each game.
Mikel Arteta’s men have scored a total of 15 goals in the preliminary matches so far, and the duel against the London rivals will be their toughest test. Striker Gabriel Jesus, who was signed as the most important reinforcement, has already scored three goals in as many games played.
The Gunners played attractively and offensively for most of the last season and there is no doubt that we will see the same style of play in the upcoming season. Arsenal’s team is full of talented and quality individuals, so we will most likely continue to watch their fluttering football in the future.
Summer signing Fabio Vieira still has not played a match for the new team due to injury, while Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiaysu and Emile Smith Rowe are also sidelined.
On the other hand, the Blues played only two matches in preparation for the new season. They played against Club America and Charlotte and won both games. Chelsea defeated the Mexican team 2-1, while they were better than the Americans after the penalty shootout. The result in the regular part was 1-1.
Chelsea were quiet at the start of the transfer window but then spent big to bring in proven players like Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly. Rumor has it that the London club is close to an agreement with another central defender, Jules Kounde from Sevilla, so this team will be a candidate for all the trophies in the new season.
Timo Werner, Cesar Azpilicueta, Kepa, and Ross Barkley have had problems with minor injuries and all four are likely to miss the clash with the London rivals. The attacking trio is expected to consist of Pulisic, Sterling, and Havertz, so Arsenal’s defensive line will be severely challenged throughout the game.
Arsenal and Chelsea played two duels the previous season and the guests celebrated both times. The Blues won 2-0 at Emirates Stadium, while the Gunners responded in the same way at Stamford Bridge – it was 4-2 for Mikel Arteta’s team.
Arteta and Tuchel are profiles of coaches who prefer an attacking style and like when their teams attack with a large number of players in the final third of the pitch. That’s why we expect a duel with a large number of scoring opportunities and we believe that the defensive intensity will not be high because it is a friendly match and the most important thing is that everyone remains uninjured.
