10 Reasons Arsenal we will beat Chelsea + Starting XI

  1. Chelsea have beaten Arsenal just once in 8 games
  2. In that time they have lost the FA Cup Final and Community Shield
  3. With Alvaro Morata injured, and failed bids for Andy Carroll and Peter Crouch, Chelsea have no decent strikers available
  4. Cesc Fabregas is also out. He has slithered into the jungle
  5. With Arsenal having no FA Cup game this weekend, Wenger has not reason NOT to play the strongest XI
  6. Arsenal are 9/5 to win To place a free bet without a deposit on this game on Arsenal
  7. With 9 trips to Wembley in 4 years (without needing to hire it), Arsenal will be motivated to make it a magical 10
  8. Chelsea have won just 1 of their last 6 games in all competitions
  9. Arsenal have the advantage going into the tie, having drawn 0-0 at Stamford Bridge
  10. With Sanchez gone and Mkhitaryan in, Arsenal feel refreshed

Expected line-up:


Chambers Mustafi Holding

Bellerin Elneny Xhaka Kolasinac

Ozil Wilshere


Result:  So everytime I write one of the e, I get abuse. “Here he go’s again” many people write. Sometimes I get it wrong, such as the Nottingham Forest game, but often I get them right.

And once more, Arsenal beat Chelsea, taking it to just 1 defeat in 9 games against the West London outfit.

I have read some pundits saying Arsenal were “lucky” and “did not deserve to make the final”. Well over 2 legs, we scored twice, Chelsea once.

Our goals might have had some luck in them, Nacho Monreal’s pinball first and the deflection from Alexandre Lacazette’s pass for Granit Xhaka’s second, but as long as they hit the back of the net, they all count.

It is not like suddenly we can pick and choose what goals to count depending on whether there was a bit of luck in them.

Imagine the scenario: A goal is scored, the referee go’s to VAR to see if it was a valid goal. Any sign of luck and the goal is disallowed. What a load of rubbish.

So Arsenal are off to Wembley for the 10th time in  5 years, and we have not had to hire it!

Up the Arsenal.

    The reason we beat them is because both sides came out to play a game of football believing that they could win.

    When you look at our matches against teams lower down the table, they come for the draw, they set themslves up to be attacked, sit deep and mug us on the break when we are totally exposed.

    We add to it when we eventually regain possession by taking half an hour to get the ball foward and then most of the time, the ball is passed back to Cech only to be lumped up field to the other lot who then come at us and have yet another crack at goal

    We won the FA Cup last year because both Man City and Chelsea came to Wembley to play football believing that they could win and we came along to the party. We ended up with two proper football matches, full of controversy, atmosphere and back page headlines.

    Whatever happens on the 25th February, it’s going to be a cracker.
