In the latest matchup, this past January, Arsenal held Chelsea to 0 goals in a 2-0 win. Arsenal’s defense could play better on Wednesday than it did in the win in January. The Reds have been fantastic on the defensive side in their last couple of matches, holding Valencia to 2 in a 4-2 win and Burnley to 1 in a 3-1 win. Arsenal should be ready for the Blues on May 29. They win this match.
