Welcome to football.london‘s live coverage of Chelsea vs Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will be looking to take another giant stride towards Champions League qualification tonight as they welcome Arsenal across the capital (8.15pm kick-off).
Fresh from their 2-1 victory over Manchester City – who have since been crowned Premier League champions – at the Etihad Stadium, Thomas Tuchel’s men know another three points against the Gunners could all but guarantee a top-four finish if Liverpool slip up against Manchester United tomorrow (and due to West Ham United’s lesser goal difference).
For Arsenal, the story is markedly different. After bowing out of the Europa League at the semi-final stage, they still have a slim chance of some sort of European football next season, but will need three points at Stamford Bridge to maintain those hopes.
