Arsenal vs Chelsea Predictions:

Arsenal might lose their top spot in the league if they fail to beat Chelsea and City get all three points else where. If Chelsea win they can go top of the table. Looking at the form of both the teams Arsenal looks well equiped to go all the way and win three points specialy since they are playing at home.Last time Arsenal beat Chelsea was back in October 2011 in that crazy 5-3 win. Jose Mourinho side are not playing at the level he would like to buy they still keep getting points and remarkably just 2 points behind Arsenal going into the big game. I am going with a 2-1 win for Arsenal at Emirates.
