The gunners travel to Stamford Bridge today hoping to capitalise on any wavering of the tremendous Chelsea spirit and power to try and build some momentum in their quest for a possible assault on the title they hold. It certainly will be a big ask of the gunners, despite Chelsea slipping up last weekend against Manchester City. The crown of London's best team has certainly shifted in recent years with Chelsea becoming the main challengers to Manchester United's dominance of the premier league in the 2004/05 season with their first premiership trophy and the gunners not having won a trophy since the F.A. cup they won in the 2004/05 season.

Didier Drogba will be the main reason why Arsene Wenger may be losing sleep this week as he has torn Arsenal apart in recent duels. Inspiring them to a 3-0 victory for the blues at the emirates and beating them 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on the way to the title last season. Although the gunners had a 5 year unbeaten streak against Chelsea between 1999 and 2004, since then it hasn't been a pleasant encounter for Arsene Wenger's men.

Chelsea will be buoyed by the evident crippling issues Arsenal have with injuries to Fabregas, Thomas Vermaelen and Manuel Almunia and Arsenal have lacked real physical strength in recent matches which will be another aspect that will favour Chelsea. Lampard will still be out through injury but the defence of Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Alex and Ashley Cole will be fine to feature for the blues and so far this season have only leaked 2 goals.

The key man for Chelsea will be Michael Essien. The midfielder has been the engine for the blues and it is no coincidence that their impressive beginning to the campaign has also seen the player start every match. His involvement was crippled last season due to a knee injury but now recovered this term has seen him give more impetus to the attack from midfield and also seen him weigh in with 2 goals. Arsenal know all about the threat he poses especially after a 35 yard screamer he scored against them in 2006.

A key man for Arsenal today could be the new buy Marouane Chamakh who was snapped up to help bring rigidity and power when going forward and he has already proved a handful for defences this season winning 2 penalties and dispatching 2 goals in 6 appearances is a good return and gives Arsenal real hope in trying to turn over the blues in their own back yard.
