We have 24 hours to go until Chelsea come to the Emirates on a day called Grand Slam Sunday!!! The other game being Liverpool v Manchester United, what a day it will be! I fancy United to go to Anfield and claim all three points and knock us off the top of the table, but only for a couple of hours as I feel we will beat Chelsea in a tight game.
News is that Cesc,Hleb and Flamini could be back for the game but dont expect Wenger to play all three from the start. They wont be match fit at the moment and also RVP has only just come back as well so thats four players who lack match fitness. I expect them to be in the squad though, and to all play some part in this match.
Chelsea are without Drogba through injury and Essian through suspension. I think Chelsea are a different side without Drogba and they cant be as direct as they'd like without him. I dont care what anyone says Chelsea still play direct football with plenty of long diagonal passes aiming towards Drogba. They have lacked a cutting edge without him, as proved in the game against Valencia in the week.
Arsenal will surely go back to a 442 formation for this game with RVP back in the side, i'm glad that we have these players all coming back as we a tough few games coming up.
I think the game is going to be really tight but i've a feeling we will be celebrating at the end of the day at the top of the league again. I think we're due a victory over Chelsea as well, it's been a while! I remember when they could'nt beat us at all and now they are undefeated against us for a few games.
