In a festive derby on 26th December two fierce London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea will meet again. The famous derby will be played at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, Boxing Day. Kick-off will start at 11.00 pm IST and will be telecasted on Star Sports 2 and HD. The live stream will be available for Disnsey + Hotstar users and Jio TV users.
Arsenal is currently 15th on the league table and are in desperate need of a league win. Mikel Arteta’s team is clearly in massive turmoil and going through a very bad patch of form. Gunners are without a domestic victory in England since beating Manchester United on Nov. 1.
Thomas Partey is expected to miss out again with a thigh injury. And captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has a calf problem is still not clear to play for Boxing Day Clash.
Chelsea is languishing in the 5th position after beating the other London Team on Monday, West Ham United. For Frank Lampard, the headache will be either to play Tammy Abraham or Olivier Giroud upfront. Abraham brace on Monday surely put his chances over Giroud who is also enjoying a great run-in form.
The last time when Chelsea met Arsenal in August, Mikel Arteta oversaw record Arsenal’s FA Cup final in a 2-1 win over Blues at Wembley. But since then, Arsenal form has quite fallen down, and also this is not the same Frank Lampard and Blues anymore from August.
