3 Chelsea Highlights
This is my first trip to London and I would love to watch an Arsenal match, since i have been following it for last 10 years. STAT ATTACK: At three minutes, 49 seconds, Alexis Sanchez’s opening goal was Arsenal’s fastest ever in an FA Cup final. Arsenal managed to beat Bayern Munich on penalties in their last match, after Alex Iwobi scored a late goal to cancel out Robert Lewandowski’s early opener.
Chelsea is aiming to win the double after claiming the 2016-17 English Premier League title. Therefore, you will usually receive the tickets between 1 to 3 days prior to the event. The Islington Gazette have teamed up with the Arsenal to offer a lucky reader a pair of VIP tickets to the first day of the tournament, in Club Level at Emirates Stadium.
The two teams have also met in the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals in 2003-04 , drawing 1-1 at Stamford Bridge, and Chelsea winning 2-1 at Highbury to go through to the semi-finals. In addition, fans will be able to watch the game for free on Chelsea TV online at the Blues’ official website.
With this being the case, the two sides are very familiar with each other, with both registering wins against each other at home in the Premier League, and Arsenal edging out the Blues in the FA Cup at Wembley. Team News & Possible Lineups: Arsenal are expected to start with Olivier Giroud upfront with Ozil, Ramsey and Sanches playing in attacking roles.
With Santi Cazorla and the much-maligned Mesut Ozil shining, Olivier Giroud in good form and Alexis Sanchez continuing to electrify, Arsenal approach the game in full confidence. What a brave performance, and one that will go down in the annals of Arsenal history.stream here
