Preview:

Chelsea will host Arsenal at the Stamford Bridge on Wednesday evening to resume one of the greatest sporting rivalries in London. While it was Mikel Arteta's Gunners who finished on top the last time around, a lot has changed ever since. The Blues under Thomas Tuchel, need just four points from their last three games to secure a top-four finish. In addition, Chelsea find themselves in two cup finals and it's been a remarkable rise for them post they decided to sack Frank Lampard. Meanwhile, the Gunners have struggled for consistency this year and would have to not only win most of their remaining games but hope for other results to go their way if they are to finish in top four. All in all, the stage seems set for a blockbuster of a clash.
