Arsenal vs Chelsea
International – Club Friendlies
Date: Sunday, 24 July 2022
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Camping World Stadium.
Heavyweights from the Premier League Arsenal and Chelsea square off at Camping World Stadium in this preseason match. A challenging season is ahead of both teams.
And a winning start is in their best interests.
The Gunners have made a number of intriguing additions during this current transfer window, and they are keen to give these newcomers a chance before the start of the league season.
They were treated unfairly the prior year since they fell just short of a top-4 finish by a few points. They were so denied the opportunity to represent England in the Champions League once more.
The league will face severe competition this time around, but they will be desperate to finish in one of the top 4 spots at any costs.
Chelsea, a reigning champion, has also made several outstanding acquisitions and is actively seeking out other notable figures.
Additionally, they had a successful season in the Champions League the year before, and they had even managed to win it.
We may anticipate an exciting game because both sides have been scoring goals frequently and because both believe the other will be an impediment to their attempts to place in the top tier.
The current situation suggests that goals will come from either end of the field.
Arsenal vs Chelsea Head to head :
- 7 of the past 9 encounters had 3 or more goals.
- The last 4 overall wins were split into 2 each for either squad.
- 7 of the previous 9 meetings also had goals from both teams.
- The latest clash had finished in a 2-4 win for the Gunners.
Arsenal vs Chelsea Prediction :
Due to their ability to enter the transfer market more quickly, Arsenal has had a stronger preseason record.
The Gunners can draw some confidence from their victory in Florida, even though the outcome is unlikely to have any impact on their Premier League campaign overall.
A 2-1 Arsenal win.
Arsenal vs Chelsea Team News :
Fabio Vieira, an Arsenal playmaker who joined the team from Porto this summer, has yet to appear in preseason due to a foot ailment. However, the 22-year-old has recently returned to training and might make his debut on Sunday if he passes a fitness test before start.
Emile Smith Rowe, Takehiro Tomiyasu, and Kieran Tierney, who haven’t participated in training owing to injuries, aren’t expected to play for the Gunners; their inclusion versus Chelsea would be surprising.
Gabriel Magalhaes, Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Thomas Partey, William Saliba, Ben White, and others all came off the bench to start the game against Orlando, but they might start again this weekend.
Even if Oleksandr Zinchenko is close to joining Arsenal from Manchester City, Sunday’s match will probably be too soon for the adaptable left-back, and Nuno Tavares is set to start once more as a result.
For Chelsea, injuries prevented Timo Werner, Ross Barkley, Cesar Azpilicueta, and Kepa Arrizabalaga from playing in the loss to Charlotte, and the group is not expected to play on Sunday.
It is unclear whether Koulibaly, who has only recently joined the first-team squad, will make his debut against the Gunners. Koulibaly was another player who did not play on Thursday.
All of the players who spent time on loan last season—Gallagher, Michy Batshuayi, Emerson Palmieri, and Ethan Ampadu—will attempt to influence Tuchel’s decision-making going into the upcoming campaign.
Last time out, players like Sterling, Mason Mount, and Kai Havertz all started on the substitutes’ bench; but, they might be included in the starting lineup this weekend.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Koulibaly; James, Jorginho, Kovasic, Chilwell; Pulisic, Havertz, Sterling
