Arsenal, Chelsea square up in potential English Premiership title decider

The 2015 Barclay’s Premier League in England has entered its final weeks, and Sunday evening at the Emirates Stadium in London the first and second-placed teams will lock horns in what not only promises to be a thrilling battle but could all but settle the question about who wins the league.

Arsenal play host to Chelsea and would hope to halt the latter’s steady match to the title. Chelsea are currently 10 points ahead of the Gunners and an away win will see them within three points of sealing the title.

It is a meeting that pits two of the best coaches against one another. Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger has never beaten Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho and it’s an unenviable record he will hope his in-form team would put an end to tomorrow.

It’s a match-up between two very in-form teams, as well as one between a team that usually plays with a flowing style with an admirable intent to win against one with a coldblooded efficiency, built on defending in large numbers for the most parts and striking with deadly lightening counters. Arsenal are the former, Chelsea the latter.

Arsenal have won their last nine games and it’s a form that would have seen them much closer to Chelsea had they not started the Premier League in an indifferent form.

Chelsea have been a more consistent customer in the BPL. Since the first week they have been on top of the table. And if there were still any lingering questions about their ability to hang on top till the end, then their efficient dispatching of a resurgent Manchester United last week provided a strong answer.

Another sub-plot of this game, apart from a potential touch line spat between Wenger and Mourinho is the battle between Arsenal’s most valuable player, Alexis Sanchez and his Chelsea counterpart, Eden Hazard. These two players are no doubt in a head to head battle for player of the season, and if any one of the two outshines the other on Sunday evening, then a strong case for being voted Best Player of the season would have been made.

Kick-off is 4pm Nigerian time.
