Where: Stamford Bridge, Fulham, London
When: Sunday, Jan. 20, at 8:30 a.m. ET

HaHa.. Finally on this sunday, two of the Premier League's most storied clubs will take the pitch at Stamford Bridge, as  The Blues takes on  The Gunners in a pivotal midseason match. Both clubs have world-class talent, and with so much at stake, it should be a very entertaining showdown on Sunday.



What's at Stake?

For my team~ Chelsea, the match will be a critical one for Rafael Benitez's men, as the Blues sit just one point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur for the third Champions League berth, and a loss would significantly hurt their chances at qualifying at all.

The Blues obviously have a much better chance at catching Manchester City, but for Arsenal, who could be facing some big changes during the next transfer window, a win over a top-flight opponent would be a nice consolation prize.

Thus far, the Gunners have endured a disappointing season and enter the weekend outside the Champions League and Europa Cup berths in sixth place, but they'll get an opportunity to change that, as they take on the third-place Blues on the road.



Player to Watch for Chelsea: Demba Ba

After coming over from Newcastle United, Demba Ba enjoyed a successful debut with the Blues, scoring two goals against Southampton in FA Cup play, but has gone scoreless in the two games since.

Ba has been very impressive since leaving Germany in 2011 and should be an upgrade for Chelsea offensively, as he's already found the back of the net 15 times this season.

The real challenge for Ba may be whether or not he can get Fernando Torres to start scoring like he did prior to arriving at Stamford Bridge.



Prediction

This match features two underachieving Premier League heavyweights who will be desperate for points, but Benitez will figure it out on how to beat The Gunners. I believe in Benitez and I think that The Blues will win the match against The Gunners. HaHaHa~

The Score Should Be 

Chelsea FC : 3 - 1 : Arsenal FC
