Chelsea vs Arsenal English Premier League preview, Prediction, and Pick
Chelsea and Arsenal are the ideal ingredients for a mouthwatering Premier League clash. This time around the clash has gained special significance for both teams as neither of them is near the top of the table. In fact both teams are facing significant challenges from Tottenham Hotspurs and Everton to ensure qualification for Champions League. Though Chelsea are at this moment seven points clear of Arsenal, nothing about their performances this season suggest that this will be an easy outing for them at Stamford Bridge on this super Sunday.

Chelsea has probably been the most inconsistent side in the entire Premier League. From their early league imperious form, they degraded to mediocrity in the mid-season. Chelsea's current form also shows the same trend. In spite of showing glimpses of their early season form while thrashing Villa 8 - 0 in one of the most clinical performances in the league they got humbled by bottom rungers QPR. One of the reasons they have struggled to keep the momentum going is their over dependence on their midfield trio of Oscar, Mata and Hazard. While all these players have a lot of promise given their tender age their performance is not as consistent as it should be. Another worrying factor for Chelsea has to be the indifferent form of their 50 million striker Fernando Torres although Demba Ba's recent signing from Newcastle might go a long way to solving that problem.

Arsenal, throughout the season, has played some excellent football but has dearly missed their star striker Robin Van Persie. Wenger has tried to play summer signing Olivier Giroud as the central striker but the Frenchman has more often than not failed to repay his manager's trust in him. Though contract rebel Theo Walcott has looked like a potent force as the central striker at times, he still looks better fitted in a winger's role. Moreover, Arsenal is more prone to fatigue than Chelsea coming from a high voltage last weekend clash with City in which they lost 2 - 0.

Both teams have mid-week assignments against Swansea and Southampton respectively. However, keeping in mind the Super Sunday clash both teams might look to rest several key players in order to field their best team against each other. In spite of that Arsenal might just be physically and mentally exhausted after their weekend clash with City and going by the sheer potential of Chelsea they might just clinch this one just like their previous meeting in Emirates.

Expect this to be a free flowing game with both teams looking to score their way out of trouble. The added firepower of Demba Ba might just tilt in favor of the Blue Boys from West London.
