Poll: Will Arsenal Or Chelsea Win On Sunday?

 Poll: Will Arsenal Or Chelsea Win On Sunday?

Arsenal’s record against Chelsea last season was miserable. In the first match in November 2009, they were completely outplayed to such an extent that it really showed the gap in talent between both clubs. Chelsea won that match 3-0 at the Emirates. Then in February, Arsenal’s hopes were dashed again when Drogba stormed to an early lead against the Gunners at Stamford Bridge in a game that ended two-nil to the Blues.

Such was the way that Chelsea outplayed Arsenal that the game last November was over in the 45th minute when Thomas Vermaelen’s own goal made it 2-0 to Chelsea. Drogba’s late goal sealed the easy victory. And when the teams played in March, you could argue the game was put out of Arsenal’s reach by the 23rd minute when Drogba scored the second of the match.

A lot has changed since last season, but does Arsenal have what it takes to mount a serious challenge against Carlo Ancelotti’s men? And if they don’t, what minute do you predict Chelsea will put the game out of Arsenal’s reach? Share your feedback in the comments section below.
