Chris Sutton has predicted the result of clash between Arsenal vs Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend. Sutton is backing Islington Gunners to take the full points at Stamford Bridge. Sutton was writing for BBC Sport, where he noted that Raheem Sterling is looking set to be the biggest threat to Mikel Arteta’s side going into the game. However, Arsenal made a big statement just before the international break. A late Gabriel Martinelli goal adored them with all three points against Manchester City at The Emirates Stadium. Owing to this, the Gunners sit second at the table with Tottenham ahead only on goal difference.

However, Chelsea have also started to get to winning ways under Pochettino. The Blues have won their last three Premier League fixtures. Despite this, Sutton has backed Arsenal to emerge victorious. He told BBC Sport, as he backed Arsenal to win 1-0,

“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. Though, 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.”

Chelsea will be desperate to continue their winning against their city rivals. Moreover, it will be one of the most significant win for them so far. Whatever be the result, it is shaping to be the most intriguing game of the weekend.
