Last 5 Arsenal vs Chelsea meeting, Arteta Won More

The big match will be presented in the second week of the Premier League when Arsenal host Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium, Sunday (22/8/2021). This match is very important for both teams, especially Arsenal, who lost in the first match to debutant Brentford.

Victory must be won by the Gunners if they don’t want to be left behind from other big teams. Unfortunately, when Arsenal wanted to rise up, they faced a team that was on fire, namely Chelsea.

Chelsea started their Premier League campaign with a bang as they thrashed Crystal Palace 3-0 at home. A few days earlier, Chelsea managed to add to the treasury of trophies when they won on penalties from Villarreal in the European Super Cup match. Not surprisingly, Thomas Tuchel’s team was seeded to win over Arsenal.

But, Chelsea must also be very cautious of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal. Despite often getting bad results against interim teams, Arsenal in the last five official matches with Chelsea has recorded more wins.

Arsenal’s winning record began when Arteta started managing the London Cannon in 2019. The first meeting took place on December 29, 2019. At that time, Arteta who first led Arsenal against Chelsea had to lose 1-2 at home.

Leading first thanks to a goal from Aubameyang, Arsenal had to lose after Chelsea came back in the last 10 minutes of the game. Chelsea scored twice through Jorginho and Tammy Abraham.

Losing in the first meeting, Arteta then learned from his mistakes. After that, Arsenal have never lost to Chelsea by winning three wins and one draw. In fact, Arsenal got three wins in the last three meetings with Chelsea in official matches.

Arsenal’s latest victory was achieved at the end of last season when they traveled to Chelsea’s cage, Stamford Bridge. The Blues, who are in their best form with Thomas Tuchel after qualifying for the Champions League final, had to lose 0-1. This thanks to a single goal scored by Emile Smith Rowe. Despite being bombarded by Chelsea for 90 minutes, Arsenal were still able to maintain their lead and ended the game with a win.

While the last meeting with Chelsea at the Emirates, the Gunners also carved a victory. Against Chelsea who is still being coached by Frank Lampard, Arsenal won with a convincing score, 3-1.

Now, Arteta is required to be able to return to bring Arsenal to victory against Chelsea. Arteta also inevitably had to accept this challenge and presented 3 points for the Arsenal fans. If Arsenal draw or even lose, it is not impossible that Arteta’s position from the coaching chair is just a matter of time to be eliminated.
