Chris Sutton makes bold prediction for Chelsea vs Arsenal

BBC pundit, Chris Sutton has shared his thoughts on Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League match with Arsenal.

The Blues are set to host Mikel Arteta’s team at Stamford Bridge for the first time this season.

The match comes off the back of two consecutive league wins for Chelsea, following victories against Fulham and Burnley just before the international break.

However, Arsenal have proven to be a tough nut to crack for Chelsea in recent years, having won six of their last nine matches with the Blues.

In fact, three of those wins have all come at the Bridge, and Sutton can see them picking up maximum points when they visit their local rivals on Saturday, October 21.

He told Sportskeeda: “I was a bit torn about this one. Arsenal have won on their past three visits to Stamford Bridge, but Chelsea have just started to string a bit of form together and Raheem Sterling in particular is looking dangerous.

“The question for Arsenal is can they go again and pick up another big win after beating Manchester City last time out? The Gunners didn’t beat the champions by playing with great fluency in the final third or by carrying a massive attacking threat, but it was the result that counted and they won the game 1-0.

“I don’t know exactly what Mikel Arteta’s gameplan will be here but, if his side try to keep things tight again, I can see them nicking the points. 0-1.”
