3. Chelsea pushing for Europe

Chelsea have been one of the most inconsistent sides this season but have shown more than once that they are capable of getting results.

Having been knocked out of the FA Cup by City on Saturday, their only pathway to Europe is via the Premier League. The Blues are currently three points off seventh-placed Manchester United and have a game in hand, so they will be eager to get a result against Arsenal to boost their European hopes.

Despite this, Mikel Arteta has a good record against Chelsea, with six wins in the 10 games he's managed against them, so he will no doubt fancy his side's chances again on Tuesday evening.
