Arsenal vs Chelsea: Gunners look to reignite title charge against torrid Blues after Man City hammering – stream, TV | The Sun

LONDON’S bragging rights are up for grabs again as Arsenal and Chelsea face off in a tasty Premier League affair – but there is much more than pride on the line.

The Gunners had put themselves in an unbelievable position to finally lift their first league title since the Invincibles in 2004.

Until Wednesday when Kevin De Bruyne’s double and an Erling Haaland masterclass put Manchester City in the driver's seat despite sitting in second place.

But the Gunners have the perfect chance to bounce back against a struggling Blues side who have lost FIVE consecutive matches which includes a recent 2-0 defeat to rivals Brentford.

And pressure is mounting on owner Todd Boehly to secure the services of Mauricio Pochettino after news broke earlier this week that the ex-Spurs boss has verbally agreed to join Chelsea 

However, form often goes out the window when these two English giants take centre stage so it’s set to be an all-out war at the Emirates.
