JG Preview: Arsenal v Chelsea

We host Chelsea in our first match of 2018 at Emirates Stadium, as we look to return to winning ways.

Name: Chelsea

Manager: Antonio Conte

Club colours: Blue

Nickname: The Blues


The Blues are the reigning Premier League champions, having won the title in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge.

Alvaro Morata became the club’s most expensive signing in the summer when he joined for an estimated £60 million.

Chelsea’s all-time leading goalscorer is Frank Lampard, who netted 211 goals for the club.

Key man: Eden Hazard

A goalscorer against us last season, when Eden Hazard plays for Chelsea the Blues look significantly more dangerous going forward.

Following two influential campaigns where he led Chelsea to league titles, Hazard has caught the eye of some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
