Is Chelsea vs Arsenal on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch the Premier League fixture



Chelsea will take on Arsenal in the Premier League on Wednesday and ahead of the match Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has compared Kai Havertz to Gunners legends.

Havertz has made an impact since joining Chelsea in 2020, scoring the winning goal in the 20/21 Champions League final and securing his starting spot.

The German international was at at the club when Tuchel took over from fired manager Frank Lampard and he has been impressed with the star.

He said: “I see a bit of Dennis Bergkamp, Robin van Persie, [Dimitar] Berbatov kind of player. He can play in the half position because he has good runs, but also feels free from the nine and creates overload to one side.

“When I watched him at Leverkusen, I didn’t know that I would coach him, when I watched him at Paris [Saint-Germain], they made him play as a nine which was very interesting.”

But will he play against Arsenal and how can fans watch? Here’s all you need to know.

Team news

Chelsea’s FA Cup semi-final saw Mateo Kovacic limp off with an ankle injury and so he is in doubt for this fixture. Long-term absentees Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi will also be missing but Ross Barkley could return from illness.

Arsenal, meanwhile, may see the return of Takehiro Tomiyasu as he is scheduled to be back in training this week. Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney are both out with injury and Alexandre Lacazette is a doubt after he tested positive for Covid last week.

Predicted line-ups

Chelsea: Mendy; James, Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Alonso; Mount, Werner; Lukaku.

Odds

Chelsea – 17/20

Draw – 5/2

Arsenal – 3/1

Prediction

Arsenal’s recent dip in form and their FA Cup semi-final win will give Chelsea confidence heading into this match. The Gunners are fighting for a top four spot but Thomas Tuchel’s side should be able to bag a win at home. Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal.
