ARS vs CHE Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
The battle for the Champions League places hots up as Arsenal look to be relevant and host Chelsea in the crucial Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, in London, on Saturday night (IST).
Having seen the managerial change at the start of the campaign, the Transition Period can subtly define the state of both Chelsea and Arsenal this season.
For Chelsea, it’s almost a known theory now that failing to meet Roman Abramovich’s ambitions can prove fatal for any manager. So after an underwhelming campaign last season, Antonio Conte was always going to be sacked.
While for Arsenal, it was an unfamiliar situation as they started the campaign under a new manager for the first time since the 1995-96 season.
If we look at the performance of both the managers, neither has stood out. Maurizio Sarri, however, can claim for more accolades after collection more points at this stage and going far in the League Cup.

ARS vs CHE Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Arsenal vs Chelsea Team News:
Injured – The injury list is easing up on Arsenal but three players will be out of contention for the matchday squad for the home clash against Chelsea.
Centre-back Rob Holding suffered a knee ligament injury in the 2-2 draw against Manchester United back in December and is not expected to feature this season.
Also, Henrikh Mkhitaryan is suffering from a foot injury, while Danny Welbeck is sidelined with an ankle issue and won’t be featuring in this match.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – In addition, Konstantinos Mavropanos is back in training but may not be risked in this high octane game.
Note: Mesut Ozil’s future is up in the air after it was reported that Arsenal are hell-bent on offloading him from their wage bill. He may be fit and healthy, but may not feature here.
Unai Emery has some big decisions to make, especially in the midfield. Lucas Torreira was left out of the starting line up in the match against West Ham last weekend and the decision backfired as Gunners lost the match 1-0. He should return, meaning only one of Granit Xhaka or Matteo Guendouzi could partner him in midfield.
Key Players – Lacazette, Aubameyang
Injured – Chelsea will be without center-back Andreas Christensen and midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek for the trip to the Emirates Stadium.
Suspended – No player is suspended for Brighton.
Questionable – Spanish striker Alvaro Morata may be carrying a knock but he is not expected to feature here either as a move to Atletico Madrid is almost complete.
Another player who is doubtful is former Leicester City midfielder, Daniel Drinkwater.
Note: Gonzalo Higuain is on the verge of becoming a Chelsea player as a move has been agreed between Chelsea, AC Milan and his parent club Juventus. However, this game may have come too soon for him to feature.
Key Players – Hazard, Pedro, Willian
ARS vs CHE Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –

ARS vs CHE Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Chelsea can do the double over Arsenal after winning the reverse fixture 3-2 earlier in the season. Both the teams were not convincing by any means having scuppered so many chances in the match.
At the moment, Arsenal are struggling for form while Chelsea are not playing at their best on a more consistent basis.
This could be a great spectacle and a score draw is our call.
