5 reasons why Chelsea will destroy Arsenal at Stamford Bridge
January is here and the business end of the season is fast approaching. The semi-finals of the League Cup promises an enthralling encounter between Chelsea and Arsenal over two legs, the first of which is to be played at Stamford Bridge this Wednesday.
This is the second of 3 encounters between the two sides this month, with the previous one a couple of days back ending in a pulsating 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium.
Both sides will look to improve upon that showing. Their performances in the FA Cup last weekend were dismal with Chelsea just earning a draw at Norwich while Arsenal got knocked out by 10 men Nottingham Forest.
The League Cup presents both teams with a shot at silverware with Chelsea seeming the likelier one of the two to be victorious.
We break down 5 reasons why Chelsea will not only win the tie but also absolutely destroy Arsenal in the first leg at Stamford Bridge.
#5 Arsenal's predictable season going the same way as every other one
We have all seen this before. January comes rolling in and Arsenal's season goes tumbling down. Arsenal produced the worst ever defence of the FA Cup last weekend and come into this match under immense pressure both on the manager and the players.
It has been proved time and again that this Arsenal team does not have the mental strength to cope with that pressure and it can be easily expected of them to bottle it on Wednesday.
Wenger himself aimed his rant at his players post-match last weekend and it is fairly certain to everyone from the outside that all is not well at the club.
