              The title race is at boiling point, with Arsenal looking to replace Manchester City at the top of the table. Chelsea, however, are looking to make a late charge for the final European place.

              Arsenal currently sit top of the Premier League table. In 33 games, The Gunners have 23 wins, five draws and five losses, leaving them on 74 points, equal with Liverpool and a point above City, who have a game in hand.

              The Gunners have the best scoring form in the Premier League with 77 goals in 33 games, an average of 2.33 goals a game. Arsenal have also been consistent in defence, conceding 26 goals and keeping 15 clean sheets.

              Chelsea sit just below in ninth place in the Premier League. In 31 games, The Blues have 13 wins, eight draws and ten losses, leaving them on 47 points, only three points off sixth place Newcastle.

              The Blues have been hot and cold in front of goal this season, scoring 61 goals, an average of 1.97 goals a game. Chelsea have struggled at the other end of the pitch, conceding 52 goals and keeping just six clean sheets.

              This is a historic fixture, with 208 meetings in the club's histories - the first meeting coming back in 1907. The Gunners have the better record in the fixture with 83 wins in comparison to Chelsea’s 66 wins, with the other 59 games ending in a draw.

              The last five games in this fixture have seen one draw, one win for Chelsea and three wins for Arsenal. In three of the last four games in this fixture there have been both teams on the scoresheet, with these three games also having at least four goals.

              Arsenal Team News

              Mikel Arteta should have a fully fit squad for the midweek clash, though Martin Odegaard and Bukayo Saka could be late calls.

              Chelsea Team News

              Mauricio Pochettino, on the other hand, has a long laundry list of injuries. Wesley Fofana and Romeo Lavia are out for the rest of the season, with Lesley Ugochukwu and Reece James also unavailable for this weekend. However, Christopher Nknku, Levi Colwill, Axel Disasi, Enzo Fernandez, Raheem Sterling and Robert Sanchez could all return.

              Recent Form

              In their last five games in all competitions, Arsenal have two wins, one draw and two losses.

              The trip to the Amex saw a penalty from Saka give Arsenal the 1 - 0 lead over Brighton at halftime. In the second half, Kai Havertz found the back of the net and Leandro Trossard scored against his former team to give Arsenal the 3 - 0 win, despite having less of the possession.

              In the first leg of the Champions League Quarter Finals, Arsenal hosted Bayern Munich. Saka was on the scoresheet again for Arsenal, opening the scoring in the 12th minute but Serge Gnabry equalised for Bayern just six minutes later. A penalty from Harry Kane gave Bayern the lead at the halftime whistle but a late goal from Trossard rescued a 2 - 2 draw for Arsenal.

              Back in the Premier League, Arsenal took on Aston Villa in a big game in the title race. Despite racking up 18 shots, Arsenal were unable to find the back of the net as Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins both scored in a three minutes period to give Villa the 2 - 0 win.

              The second leg of the Champions League Quarter Finals saw Arsenal in Germany. Joshua Kimmich scored the only goal of the game just after the hour to give Bayern the 1 - 0 win and the spot in the Semi Finals.

              The last time out for Arsenal was against Wolves. Trossard got Arsenal on the scoresheet on the stroke of halftime and Odegaard added another in the 95th minute to give Arsenal the 2 - 0 win.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Chelsea have two wins, two draws and one loss.

              A penalty from Cole Palmer gave Chelsea the lead over Burnley right on the stroke of halftime after the red card to Lorenz Assignon, but a goal from Josh Cullen just minutes into the second half made it level. Palmer regained the lead for Chelsea with ten minutes to go but a late goal from Dara O’Shea grabbed a 2 - 2 draw for ten-man Burnley.

              Chelsea opened the scoring against Manchester United in the fourth minute through Conor Gallagher and a penalty from Palmer doubled the lead before the 20 minute mark. Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes made it level at halftime and with just 20 minutes to go Garnacho put United ahead. However, another penalty from Palmer in the 100th minute and another goal just one minute later gave Palmer a hat-trick and Chelsea the 4 - 3 win.

              The trip to Bramall Lane saw Chelsea trip up again against a relegation candidate. Thiago Silva gave Chelsea the lead in the 11th minute but Jayden Bogle equalised before halftime. Noni Madueke regained the lead for Chelsea but a 93rd minute goal from Oli McBurnie gave Sheffield United the 2 - 2 draw.

              Chelsea bounced back against Everton. Palmer picked up a 30 minute perfect hat-trick and was joined on the scoresheet by Nicolas Jackson before halftime. Another penalty from Palmer and a first senior goal for Alfie Gilchrist wrapped up a 6 - 0 win for Chelsea.

              The most recent outing for Chelsea was the FA Cup Semi Final against Manchester City. Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the game in the 84th minute to give City the 1 - 0 win and the spot in the Final.

              Footy Accumulators Prediction

              Despite their little wobble against Aston Villa, Arsenal will be out for blood against Chelsea, who themselves are guilty of rollercoaster form this season. - Arsenal 3 - 1 Chelsea
