THE PREDICTION

Another defeat in the League Cup in midweek for Arsenal amplified just how deep in trouble they are at the moment, and it doesn’t look like it is going to get better anytime soon. Arsenal have lost nine games already this season in all competitions, and their game against Chelsea could quite easily be the tenth. A resounding 3-0 win over West Ham restored the confidence back into Lampard's men, who had experienced a rocky period prior to the game, with back-to-back defeats and a draw not long before that. However, expect Chelsea to take full advantage of an Arsenal side low on confidence and morale that seems to be in tatters.
