Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: Arsenal v. Chelsea Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

These two London-based rivals will collide Saturday in the FA Cup, in what will be Arsenal's final shot at earning a spot in the 2020-21 UEFA Europa League. The Gunners come in off three wins and two losses in their last five matches, while Chelsea have also registered the same form in that stretch. What's noticeable is the fact that both clubs defeated teams that finished ahead of them in the Premier League standings during the previous round. While Arsenal defeated Manchester City, Chelsea got past Manchester United. These two sides have also met in final matches in the past, and the record is even. While Arsenal won both FA Cup finals against the Blues, the Stamford Bridge outfit got the best of Arsenal during last season's UEFA Europa League final.
