Much will be made of the two managers for the Chelsea Arsenal clash (kick-off at 1.30pm– both under fire from their respective supporters and yet both, just about, keeping their respective teams in the hunt for a top four finish and Champions League qualification. Arsenal’s Wenger loses his best players each summer and manages the club on a budget, but it’s the seven-and-a-half trophyless years that are upsetting the fans. Rafael Benitez is unpopular because, well, just ask your nearest Chelsea devotee. Apart from last season’s amazing 5-3 win for Arsenal, the Blues have enjoyed a good spell against their rivals and have already won the reverse earlier this term. Expect a cagey affair with Carzola, Mata and Hazard drawing regular gasps of amazement from the crowd in a game neither team can afford to lose. If there’s a silver lining, Manchester United play Spurs later at 4pm and one or both will be dropping points there too.
