Arsenal are looking to end a run of three straight Premier League defeats as they face Chelsea tonight in what is another crucial fixture in the race for the top four.

The Blues, buoyed by booking their place in the FA Cup final on the weekend, enjoy an eight-point gap over those chasing a top-four finish and can effectively seal their qualification to next season’s Champions League with a win.

Romelu Lukaku and Reece James struck in a convincing 2-0 victory in the reverse fixture across the capital, ending Arsenal’s three-game winning streak in this particular derby.

Now it is the Gunners in need of a turnaround having slipped to sixth place as the pressure of the run-in continues to crank up.
