Craig Bellamy does not believe that Arsenal stand a chance against Chelsea this Sunday, report the Metro.
The Gunners already trail the Premier League champions by three points after a shaky start to their campaign, they can’t afford to fall any further behind their rivals even at this early stage. Unfortunately for them, they face a trip to Stamford Bridge to lock-horns with a Chelsea side who have won four games on the trot.
You would like to fancy our chances against Arsene Wenger’s men, especially with Eden Hazard back in contention. Former Manchester City and Liverpool attacker Craig Bellamy appears to do so too.
Bellamy is quoted by the Metro suggesting that if Chelsea bring their A-game, Arsenal have little hope of getting anything out of the fixture:
“If Chelsea go about it with any intensity, they’ll blow Arsenal out of the water, this game could be over in the first half hour. Of course they can [cause a surprise] but I just can’t see it.”
Ultimately, the outcome of this fixture could depend on whether the threats of Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette are effectively nullified by Antonio Conte.
