Why Arsenal fans should be hopeful of getting a good result against Chelsea.
In addition to the 2-0 loss to Brenford at the Brentford Community Stadium, the next two EPL games for Arsenal are a real cause for worry for every Arsenal fan. But all hope is not lost.
Arsenal will face Chelsea and, subsequently, Manchester City. Fans feared that if they were not able to stand their ground when they played against newcomers Brentford, how then could they hold it against the two heavyweights, Manchester City and Chelsea?
The signing of Lukaku and his recent comments on Chelsea’s website about his readiness to play against Arsenal on Sunday, seem to have added to the growing worries facing Arsenal fans.
However, there is another development in this story that may interest Arsenal fans and give them hope against Chelsea in their next match, as shown below.
According to Metro Sports, Arsenal could unleash Martin Odegaard against Chelsea on Sunday.

The reports claimed that Arsenal were very close to agreeing a deal with Real Madrid for the permanent transfer of Odegaard and could throw him straight into action against Chelsea on Sunday.
Recall that Arsenal has never lost to Chelsea with Martin Odegaard in the midfield. The last time Arsenal played Chelsea in the League and Martin Odegaard started the match, it ended 1-0 in favour of Arsenal.
Smith Rowe was the hero that day as he scored the only goal that helped Arsenal win the match. However, we all know that it was the combination of Martin Odegaard and Smith Rowe in the midfield that made Arsenal edge Chelsea out. Otherwise, Chelsea would have won.
So if the news of Odegaard is true, and the reports about him starting against Chelsea hold sway, then this is hope for Arsenal on Sunday. His 100% record against Chelsea could play a vital role in the outcome of the match, and hopefully, he will help Arsenal defeat Chelsea.
