Watch Chelsea v Arsenal Live
The London derby between Chelsea and Arsenal is one of the highlights of the seasons.
Chelsea currently sit top of the table with Arsenal hot on their heels in 2nd place making this one of the most crucial and exciting games of the season.
Chelsea will be hoping Costa and Hazard will be firing on all cylinders but with Sánchez and Walcott equally as goal happy this season it’s likely to be a close call between the two London giants.
MatchTV is showing the full 90 minutes of the match and with it being a mid-afternoon Saturday match you’ll be able to kick back and relax watching the entire game on your day off.
If you’re further afield in locations such as Australia then you won’t have many problems watching the action as instead of the usual mid-night time the game starts in Sydney at a respectable 23:30.
Chelsea or Arsenal?
Chelsea has the home advantage playing at Stamford Bridge but after the Gunners thrashed them 3-0 at the Emirates back at the end of September it’s unlikely to be an easy game for the league leaders.
If you like to take into account past stats then Chelsea are the more likely to win this derby match. Last season Chelsea won both games and in the past six years the matches have been mostly weighted in Chelsea’s favour in terms of wins.
As we all know past stats mean nothing though. Both Chelsea and Arsenal are on the top of their game and the two most successful clubs this season meaning it’s almost impossible to predict who will be victorious.
