2012 Barclays Premier League:Arsenal vs. Chelsea
September 26, 2012 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, Chelsea goes to Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal in a Barclays Premier League fixture. Game time is set at 11:45AM GMT.

Chelsea leads the Premier League with a 4-1-0 record, good for 13 points. Next to them is Manchester United which has 4-0-1 record and 12 points. Last week, Ashey Cole delivered the key strike to lead Chelsea to a 1-0 win against. Stoke.

The Blues unleashed the quartet of Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres, Oscar and Juan Matta for the first time to strike fear to their opponent. However, it was evident that the four players are still unfamiliar with each other throughout the game.

Chelsea could still experiment different player combinations since it is still early in the season. But it is better to use players that will work in every single fixture.

Arsenal managed to get a point over defending champion Manchester City after a 1-1 draw last week. The Gunners are the third club to draw level with Manchester City this season. A late equalizer from Laurent Koscielny snatched the draw and eventually robbed Manchester City of a win.

The Gunners will need all their strength and courage this Saturday as they face the well-stocked Blues. Arsenal may have an additional player on the field because they will play at their stadium and their loyal fans will support them start to finish.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Arsenal as the favorite to beat Chelsea and hand them their first loss of the season.
