Here’s how you can watch the match and what to know.Premier League: Arsenal vs. Chelsea
Date: Saturday, Jan. 19
Time: 12:30 p.m. ET
Location: Emirates Stadium
Arsenal: Can the Gunners get over the hump and take care of the Blues? Arsenal lost 3-2 in early August in their first meeting this season, and in the last eight meetings with Chelsea in all competitions, the Gunners have won just once, losing twice and drawing five times. All season long, the Gunners have struggled to beat the big boys. Arsenal has played Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United, failing to beat any of them.
Chelsea: The Blues have a huge opportunity to really move much closer to a spot in the Champions League. It’s still early in the season, but a nine-point gap could end up being enough as long as they don’t collapse the rest of the way. The problem is whether the Blues can keep it going with Eden Hazard playing the false nine role. Chelsea hasn’t lost any of its last four Premier League matches.
Arsenal vs. Chelsea prediction
Both teams need a win to build momentum, neither gets it as it all ends even in a result that’s better for the Blues than the Gunners.
Pick: Draw (+220)
