After a frustrating start of the Premier League campaign, Chelsea have made a comeback following three Premier League wins in-a-row.
In addition, Chelsea’s 6-0 Champions League victory only a couple of days has even boosted their confidence ahead of the London derby, where they will be locking their horns against the North London giants Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Chelsea man-in-charge Antonio Conte is under tremendous relief following the availability and the forms of his players. So, he will be keen to wipe off the failures in the penalty in the FA Community Shield against Arsene Wenger’s side earlier in this season. On the other hand, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger can also have some relief with the return of his star player Alexis Sanchez from injury. This will boost his attacking options along with the German veteran Mesut Ozil and French forward Alexandre Lacazette. Reportedly, they have also made a comeback following their 3-0 victory against Bournemouth in the last gameweek and another 3-1 victory over the German side FC Koln in the UEFA Europa League has catalysed their confidence. So, we can expect a hard fought battle on Sunday.
