For Arsenal, the Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez is a certain threat to any defence. Apart from that, the deliveries of the “Assist King” Mesut Ozil can also be very dangerous sometimes. In addition to that, irrespective of the goal drought, the French international forward Alexandre Lacazette can be a crucial factor. On the other hand, for Chelsea, the combination of the Spanish duo involving Cesar Azpilicueta and Alvaro Morata is a certain threat as it has worked for The Blues for six times this season. The presence of the Belgian superstar Eden Hazard can also be very crucial. Apart from that, the long balls from Cesc Fabregas are always dangerous.
