Match Preview : Arsenal vs Hull

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Arsenal are now in danger of falling out of the top four following their 3-1 defeat to Chelsea last time out. Arsene Wenger’s side are only one point clear of Liverpool and two ahead of Manchester United heading into the final stretch of the season.

Hull’s incredible resurgance under Marco Silva continued at the weekend when they pulled off a fantastic 2-0 win over Liverpool to follow up from the 0-0 draw they managed with Manchester United the game before.

Surely they cannot record three positive results in a row against three of the biggest teams in the league?

Even if the Tigers are not able to come away from their trip to the Emirates with some points, they will not make it easy for an Arsenal side that desperately need a win here to balance the ship. Place your Bet on NaijaBet.com

Match Preview : Chelsea vs Arsenal

Chelsea managed to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League despite only managing a 1-1 draw with Liverpool on Tuesday and they should all but secure the title if they avoid defeat at home to Arsenal on Saturday.

Arsenal failed to gain ground on Chelsea in midweek after slipping to their home league defeat since August at the hands of Watford and they could finish the weekend outside the top four if they lose at Stamford Bridge. NaijaBet.com

The Gunners recorded their first league win against Chelsea in nine attempts when the two sides met earlier in the season but things have changed dramatically since their September clash and Chelsea are firm favourites to win their fifth home league game in a row against Arsene Wenger’s side, in which Arsenal haven’t even managed to score in their last three attempts.

Team News

Chelsea – David Luiz is still struggling with a knee injury picked up earlier in the season but Antonio Conte cannot risk taking him out of the team just yet. The same is true of Eden Hazard.
Pedro started the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on the bench and could come into the team here at the expense of Willian.
